The Ruffle Tee pattern for free!

So I’ve been working on learning how to create PDF patterns lately. I’ve been dipping in and out of Lauren Dahl’s Pattern Workshop course which has spawned tons of indie pattern designers already.

A corset back Nettie hack

I do love my Nettie bodysuit hacks! This one is for my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post – a corset back Nettie! Now by corset back I just mean it laces up in the back, not that it’s actually corseted in anyway. If it was it would definitely make this body way too difficult […]
