I'm really excited to introduce our newest pattern, Jackie!
This style is named after my beautiful mama, who has always been a muse and a source of creative inspiration for me. Of the countless amazing things about her, one thing I've always loved is the pride she takes in the simple act of getting dressed. She manages to be stylish, no matter if it's just to pop out to the grocery.
I think our moms create the foundation for how we dress. We learn the "rules" from them, and then perhaps we break them but for myself, as I'm older now, I definitely feel like I try to channel my mom circa 1970 when I'm getting dressed. She would probably say that I've completely missed the mark, as she questions most of my outfit choices, but we're talking "inspiration" here!
I've always loved looking at old photos of her in her 20's and imagine what she was like then, what made her laugh, and all the beautiful clothes that she would wear. I get very upset with her that she didn't save them for me so all I can do now is imagine, and design, and sew up something that may have been worthy of being in her wardrobe. So, for this new pattern I kept her in my mind and created a style that has just the right amount of classy vintage lady vibes that one might feel properly primped in, yet comfortable to wear while buying broccoli.
But first, what's a story without a couple of pics of the muse herself!
