Sew Caroline Waterfall Tank

I was lucky enough to be offered the chance to be a pattern tester for the upcoming Sew Caroline pattern, the waterfall tank! Full disclaimer I was offered the pattern for free in exchange for feedback to improve and test the pattern before final release. I was not paid to create this garment, and theContinue reading “Sew Caroline Waterfall Tank”

Paris: Sacré-Cœur

The first sight we saw was the closest to our little Paris Apartment, Basilique du Sacré-Cœur. We went bright and early around 9:30 to beat the crowds.

Fabric Shopping in Montmarte, Paris

Fabric Shopping in Paris is very different than what I’m used to here in the states. I went on a Saturday morning after a somewhat lengthy cafe sit. Within a few minutes of getting to the shops at the base of Sacré-Cœur, the markets were slammed. I thought I would share helpful tips I picked upContinue reading “Fabric Shopping in Montmarte, Paris”
