Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

Summertime by the pool is the perfect opportunity to lose yourself in an embroidery project. As long as you're not chatty like me, and find yourself talking to all the other parents instead of working on the embroidery you'd planned to do for 3 hours while your kids swam. Ahem. So, this week I hunkered… Continue reading Peony Patterns Mariposa Hand Embroidery {Release}

I always hesitate to test pant/shorts patterns because let's just say I've been jaded by bad fits. I knew a Peony… Continue reading Peony Patterns Lilac Shorts + FREE Tigerlily Tank {Release}

Peony Patterns Juniper Dress {Release}

So for this last month or so, I've been on a bit of a sewing hiatus. It wasn't really *intentional* - the issue was that my sewing machine refused to do an automatic buttonhole. This issue started back in October, and when I took it into the shop for them to fix it, their tech… Continue reading Peony Patterns Juniper Dress {Release}
