Atlanta Sewing Stye All Ankara Featured in Sewn Magazine!

I never wanted to live in (near) Atlanta, but I must say, it has brought some special people and moments into my life.  Including this talented group of people!  A group sharing a common interest and the blessed ability to sew our own clothing!

The Zadie Jumpsuit in Minerva's Linen Look Suiting

Hello Fall!
