The life of a Parisian is alluring and it’s why the movie Sabrina is a tough choice not to make. I don’t really care about the skinny women who live there – it’s the culture that sucks me in. Have you ever seen the movie Midnight In Paris? It’s a korny Woody Allen movie but it  Continue Reading »

Meet Brooke: Owner Of Sweet Bees Finds

      SALLIE is laid back cool in her me-made loungewear.

       

      Are you following LAUREN and the whole host of other sewers who are making V1419, a Ralph Rucci inspired coat? It’s going to be fantastic.

      Why use PDF patterns? MELISSA from Fehr Trade discusses.

       

      With the temperatures cooling off in the northern hemisphere, RACHEL just finished a colorful clover dress. I hope she layers it with tights and a sweater/jacket because it is too good to sit in her closet until spring!
