    As soon as I saw this pattern I knew I had to make some for my two little nieces (ages 3 and 4) for Christmas. I filled them up with little treasures and they were a big hit! They took a lot longer…

    Thank you! Of course, I won’t be wearing the high heels when I’m actually at a music festival. Makes for a better picture, though!

    Dana_park_1-hdr_listing

    I love a full pleated skirt, especially with a bold modern floral print. This was the perfect project to show off this stunning fabric.

    What a cute dress! I’ve recently started drafting my own clothes and I’ve been using a book called Patternmaking for Fashion Design by Helen Joseph Armstrong. It’s a very pricey book but I was able…
