Emerald Dress

While learning any skill, there comes a time after all the struggling with books, putting in hours of effort, sometimes almost giving up, that you finally get it.

Printed Culottes

Remember the palazzo pants I made early last year. This is from the same pattern. I used cotton this time and to make my culottes just reduced the length. Medium weight cotton worked just great and it was really nice to work with cotton after so long. I used one of my machine stitches to […]
