Boxes and boxes


It’s getting close, folks! The patterns have landed, and just seeing all of these boxes makes me giddy. I can just imagine all the potential they contain for gorgeous handmade clothes. Wow.

I’m still waiting on one more component: the instruction booklets. They are going to be fantastic, the real pièce de résistance.

I still want to sew for you. I just love both of the dresses and all those patterns! Now that I am out of work, I have the time to sew. These are amazing.
