Wednesday Weekly #133

Happy Wednesday! I am in the middle of putting the finishing touches on an upcoming pattern and am about to make the final samples for the photoshoot. I love this part! Choosing the final fabrics is so much fun and I get to sew for a whole day as ‘work’, which is basically the dream. I can’t wait to share more, but for now, here are some great releases this week from some of my fellow designers. :)

News (clockwise from top left)

Hey June released the Phoenix Blouse.
