    Img_4876_listing

    I liked this as soon as I saw it in the magazine. It was not difficult to make and the petite sizing was fine for me even though I’m much taller than the recommended 160cm. I love the clean design …

    Img_2554_listing

    This is my first attempt at the Laurel pattern. I am really pleased with it, although it does need a couple more adjustments. I lowered the neckline and took in the sides, but I need to lower the b…
