internship love.

Sneak peak
Every friday morning I ride my bike over to the Colette Patterns studio, located in a sun drenched industrial warehouse that has been converted into spacious creative space for local businesses. Today was only my second week as Sarai's blog intern, but I already feel so inspired by this experience! I spent six hours at the studio, organizing the prettiest collection of vintage notions, discussing plans for future blog posts, and sewing up a storm. Psst...the photo above is a sneak peak! :) :)

It's great to have an IRL connection between your blog and Colette Patterns, both of which I love. Looking forward to further sneaky peeks!

Hi! This is so so strange of a coincidence and a funny story. I bought something from you a while back on Etsy and I went to your account today and saw that you live in Portland. Well I live in Portland too so i clicked on your blog to check it out and stumbled upon this post. I have this dress! I got it from House of Vintage about a month ago. Did you make it? I love it.

That is funny and crazy! I reworked a vintage dress to add the ruffles and made it shorter, but it was originally Anja's (clevernettle.com) so maybe she sold it and it ended up at House?

so happy to hear that it has a good home!!
