  1. Hello! I just found your blog via cjane and I'm so glad I did! Your stuff is beautiful! I'm so excited to follow you!

    I've started sewing dresses for myself (with patterns, definitely not brave enough to do one without one!) Often, I need to add a sleeve to an existing pattern to make it work. I am loving the petal sleeves on all the dresses!!!

    Is there any way you would do a tutorial on petal sleeves in the future? I would happily buy a pattern from you if one were available too!
