First piece of the new year (and it's for me)!

One of my goals this year is to make more everyday wardrobe items for myself.  Even though I have the luxury of 2 full weekdays to sew, they're usually filled with projects for either my theatre clients or Etsy shop.  The result is that I haven't sewn something for myself since I sewed a reception dress for my wedding almost 4 years ago.Last month I found a really great blog article through…See More
