There are certain times when I make something and I know I’m really late to the party – so late that when it’s done, I hesitate to even post about it since it feels like people will have seen and read all about the pattern already and I’ll have nothing material to add. (I’m thinking[…]
This dress was a departure from my usual style of sewing, in many ways.
