Hi Makers! There are so many awesome Spring/Summer patterns coming our way these days, I am like a kid in a candy shop! I am currently working on the Victory patterns Hannah dress and the Deer and Doe Lupin jacket to kick off the cooler months of spring sewing, but I am REALLY excited about making some simple tops and dresses soon too. In fact, there is a little community event happening to encourage me to do just that! Check it out below 🙂 Happy sewing!!
