      In most instances, a sequel is not as good as the first. But when it comes to sewing, it's the opposite. CLARE is showing off her second version of McCalls 6696, which is way better than the first.


      The newest indie pattern release is from PAULINE ALICE. Last week, she launched Alameda Dress, a simple, modern yet flirty dress with interesting seaming. And that's not all she announced! She is also opening an online shop!
