Choosing a fabric to review was very difficult as the new woven collection offers many beautiful prints and if you know me, then you know that I can’t resist a print. I finally choose this fabulous Bubbles on Black viscose to make a Lucy dress from Workshop Patterns. This viscose is just super soft and has amazing drape. Sometimes I worry that...

PIN & SEW MAKES : Watercolour Succulents Jersey Elliot Sweater

Hi fellow sewers, I'm Ruth(@ruthiesews)and this is my first blog post as part of the Pin and Sew Blogger Team. I hope you enjoy it!
