Another Black Friday grab, the Forsythe from French Navy has been on my radar for a while now. I have always wanted this pattern, but never felt I had the right fabric for it. So I re-purposed some Jersey stripe from Girl Charlee that was originally intended for my grunge dress that has failed to… Continue reading French Navy Forsythe
When I went to the Great British Sewing Bee Live at the Excel (waaaay back last year) I got to meet some of the pattern creators, and discover some new ones too. One of these was Nina Lee.
