I saw the “Doctor Who” sencha the other day when I was thinking of interesting fabric ideas. I love toiles because of the simple one or two colors, and that funky things can be hidden in the print!

Thank you!! What a pleasant surprise. I made this with lots of love for my daughter, who is the model and this is such a great pattern. Best of luck on the Martha Stewart contest!


Awe, how sweet! And thank you!


These are all fantastic, I love the Lady Grey coat.


the accessorizing for the nautical hawthorn is too great. the necklace, belt, and purse complete it perfectly!


Thanks so much for the shout out. I’m loving everyone’s creations and styling, and am inspired to try my hand at the Hawthorn!
