I’ve gotten a lot of neat stories and photos from customers over the years, but this one has to take the cake. First, let me share the note this husband sent to me earlier this year when he inquired about my Regency patterns: I’m actually making this for my wife as a surprise for our [...]

I sent a question back during the fall while I was sewing my daughter’s Regency down with removable overlay (she wanted two dresses in one).
