Sometimes Caitlin and I will get to work and find we match each other. Both of us have an affinity for gingham, navy, stripes, and chambray, which can lead to some embarassingly matchy-matchy days.
But I don’t think I’ve ever seen Caitlin match the project she was sewing quite this well.
I’m excited to say that I approved all the proofs for the two new Fall patterns this week! Above are the proofs for the pattern sheets, which were the last pieces in need of approval. In a few weeks, we’ll have everything ready for binding, gluing, assembly, and finally… finally… shipment in September!
In the meantime, I’m starting to sketch ideas for Spring. Does anyone have any thoughts? I always lean toward dresses for Spring because that’s what I like to wear in warm weather
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone. Here are some links Casey put together for us to peruse:
