While I've had Simplicity 2443 in my pattern collection for a while, the Best Of pattern contest really made me pull it out and get to work on it.

About Me

I've only been sewing since 2007, but I have to say, I'm completely addicted. Especially as garments I make are not automatically headed for the trash. More commentary at weekendcrafting.blogspot.com more
