It’s nothing complicated – just a kind of Read More…

Back in the shop: Róza paper patterns

The first new item to come to the shop isn’t quite entirely new – Róza paper patterns are back in stock! I promise there are other, completely new items coming too. But I owed you this first, especially after how many of you have emailed me wanting a paper pattern after the first (tiny) run sold out.

Another pretty Róza blouse sewn up by Chrissy! Take a look:

Chrissy used a double gauze fabric with smaller checks on one side and large checks on the other, making the front panel in the “reverse” of the rest of the blouse.
