My favourite pattern of 2019
Last year was most definitely a year of ruffles in my wardrobe (and let’s be honest it’s going to continue in 2020!). I think I first saw the Mira dress by Fibre Mood on Instagram, I remember seeing Self Assembly Required’s beautiful version and knew it was one I needed to make !So I headedContinue reading “My favourite pattern of 2019”
