Slow Fashion October 2016- LONG WORN + HANDMADE

I shared my “Introductions” last week for Slow Fashion October so I’m combining weeks two and three here today with LONG-WORN + HANDMADE.  I’m in the middle of a number of different projects.  I’m finishing up my striped Rue dress, I have two Granville Blouses done (but unblogged-one I’ll be adding Sashiko stitching to) and I was a tester for the Kelly Anorak.   I just received a bunch of …

I love to …

My son turns 7 tomorrow, I’m planning all our costume sewing for Halloween (my very favorite holiday!) and it’s the start of Slow Fashion October!  I’m a huge proponent of Slow Fashion so I was psyched to find Karen’s of Fringe Association’s plans and prompts for this month.  Week 1’s Theme was You and …
