I have to say, I am loving these button-up tops I just made. I know I will be making more to wear over the summer because they are so versatile and they really are flattering. I love that you can pair them with a cardigan or sweater when it's chilly out, so essentially you can wear these tops all year round! The fabrics I used are so lovely and light and the linen is so comfortable. I only have three of these tops up for sale at the moment but I hope to make more soon. They are all located in my shop if you are interested!
P.S. THANK YOU so much to all who were kind enough to write suggestions for places to visit in and around Seattle! I'm so looking forward to checking all of them out! It sounds like there will be so much to do during our stay.

It's been awhile since I've been on this space! A lot of goings on have been in progress for the last few months. As you see by the picture, I'm finally starting on those sewing patterns I talked about ages ago! I wanted to make them available before now, but there were several parts that I needed to figure out first. I finally figured out how to digitize the patterns after experimenting with it one day. I'm actually working on two patterns right now and hope to work on more over the spring/summer months. That brings me to another bit of news coming up! Jed and I will be spending the spring and part of the summer in Seattle, which I'm quite excited about! Although this means I won't be able to sew as much since I'll only be able to bring whatever I can fit in our car. I plan to work on my sewing patterns and perhaps get in a little sewing here and there. But I'm not planning on a spring/summer collection this year. I may actually stop doing spring/summer collections all together, as it seems to be a slower time of year. And I never get excited about spring/summer clothing as much as I do the fall/winter season! So I think I will spend my efforts making my sewing patterns available and work on a fall/winter collection. However, I can still make clothing from my past collections and in new fabrics. I am going to try to sew up a few things before we leave, but we shall see if that actually happens! In any case, I'm very much looking forward to spending time in the Pacific Northwest! And I know we will be taking a trip (or several) to Portland during our stay! I would love to find out favorite places to go see while we are there, so if anyone is from the area and would like to suggest a few spots I would be grateful! We have never been to this area before, but I know we are going to love it.
