Wednesday Weekly #134

Happy Wednesday, makers! This has been a very exciting week for me because I released a new pattern! I am obsessed with this latest design because it is so easy to wear over any top and it is incredibly comfortable. I have been blown away by the positive response to the York and I can’t wait to see your versions popping up soon! Happy summer sewing to all! <3
