    Around this neck of the woods..teen girls show straps and most moms don’t, so I guess it depends on the target for this pattern? I prefer shirts that I don’t have to find/wear a “special bra” with. But if it had a built in that would make the difference. 🙂

    I have two boys and one husband who have outgrown Oliver and S (ha!) I make mostly casual items, like sweatshirts, swim gear, and sleepwear for them. I also do dress shirts because I hate the options in stores.

    I agree with all of the above. Mine were all very wakeful, taking till age 3 or so to sleep thru. And we tried everything! My youngest still wakes once a night (he’s seven) and I will take him to the bathroom and he will climb in with us. He is terrified of ghosts and I believe he can see something from what he says. He won’t even put his feet on…[Read more]

  • I have mostly knits in my “collection”, which is vast! and I have to recommend Nature’s fabrics as having “bend-over-backwards” for you customer service, she will work to find what you need (she has a rare assortment of wool for those who love natural fibers and euro knits without the outrageous international shipping!) and Jeanne is a lovely…[Read more]
