What I’m Lovin’ in June

Read on to see what I’ve been lovin’ this month!



 1. This interview with Meg Elwee of Sew Liberated

I appreciate Meg’s focus on creating a mindful sewing practice, styling handmade garments creatively vs. creating a high output (quality over quantity!), and her encouragement to hack basic patterns in this interview with Spoonflower.

 2. Inside Out Congruency

I had never heard about this until I listened to Stasia Savasuk’s TED Talk – fascinating (btw, Meg’s Stasia pattern is named after her. She was mentioned in Meg’s interview which is how I landed on her TED Talk.)

When you know who you are and where you belong, you don’t have to wait for anybody else’s approval. Style isn’t really about the clothes. It’s about who you are on the inside and how you choose to show up in the world.

Such a powerful message.

 3. Propagating Plants

If you’ve ever wanted to grow plant babies from your existing plants, this cartoon walks you through how to do it. I’ve got quite a collection of succulent babies from this method.

 4. These reasons why we should stop referring to maternity leave as “generous”

This article in Fast Company really put the US’s [non-existent] parental leave in perspective.

 5. It’s Pride Month!

I ran across these 7 ways to be a better ally to LGBTQIA+ parents this month and I think it is a very worthy read. Get your kids involved with one of these 20 must-read LGBTQIA+ children’s books.

 6. Arthur

Did you know that Arthur is still on TV?! I used to looooove watching that show. Season 22 just premiered to much positive praise:

In an episode where a male teacher gets married to another man, the behavior that the other characters consider most worrisome is his dorky dancing…

 7. This reminder for Mamas this summer

Be the one who goes under because you know wet hair is a small price to pay for rapturous giggles.

 8. The La Brea Tee Pattern from Halfmoon Atelier

Meghann just released the La Brea Tee pattern & it looks like it’s going to be a closet staple. There are 2 views of the pattern – 1 for knit fabric & the other for woven! I’ve already purchased my copy 🙂

 9. These tips for organizing sewing patterns

I organize most of my patterns in 3-ring binders (by garment type) with page protectors. Patterns I’ve had printed at the copy shop are rolled and stored in a gift wrap bin that looks an awful lot like a plastic trash can. Neither are pretty but they work!

 10. My Metamorphic Dress

I have been wearing this dress a lot but have not had time to properly blog about it so I hadn’t shared it yet, but I love it!


Thank you for reading along & being a part of my community. ❤

My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
