Springtime Sewing Is Here!

We are exploring different blouse options for the month of April so that after two months of sewing bottoms, you won't have to go walking around topless (unless that's your thing).

March Madness for Trouser Patterns

Say Hello to the February Box Featuring Pencil Skirts!

I personally love the look of pencil skirts. You can wear them to work and look wicked professional or you could pair it with tights, boots and a short jacket and look perfect for a dinner out or a cool brunch. Plus, if you pair a fabulous skirt with a neutral top, you can create a bold statement outfit with very little effort. Pardon my French, but they are versatile AF. And this month, I've chosen three styles that will be great additions to your wardrobe.
