The Wildflower Kimono is now available and comes in sizes NB through ladies' 3X...all in one pattern! This is such a fun, quick sew and extremely versatile!

Create it with one fabric or piece it together with multiple fabrics for added interest. Add sleeve cuffs or just let the sleeves flow.

Women's Coachella Shorts - Slim Fit Version

April 21, 2015

When Girl Charlee came out with their awesome pineapple fabric, I knew it would be perfect for Coachella Shorts! Since I decided to go with the pineapple denim I wanted the shorts to be a closer fit than all my other Coachella Shorts. The Women's Coachella Shorts were originally drafted to be more of a relaxed fit, which works great with knit and other fabrics with good drape. So I went ahead and just sized down for the denim and they fit great!

Wanderer Tunic - Tester Round-Up

January 27, 2015

Wow the response to the Wanderer Tunic has been overwhelming! I'm truly so grateful for all the wonderful testers that helped make this pattern fantastic! I designed this pattern with the double banded, 3/4 length sleeves in mind, eventually adding long and short options. I had no idea though when I sent it off to testing that I would eventually end up with 10 sleeve options in this pattern. My testers did such an amazing job of using their creativeness to make each one of their tops truly unique. I love them all!! Get ready for a picture overload....

Testing is just too much fun! I get so excited every time I receive a notification during testing...hoping it's another tester posting their awesomeness! I'm part of so many sewing groups and I can see the same pattern sewn by a thousand different people and it still amazes me every. single. time.
