During this round of testing the Miss Fern skirt, we really learned a lot about how much the fabric dictates the fit of this waistband. I'm going to point out the big areas of consideration and I have some general tips including a gathering video down below. Let's get into this.

A Half-Zip Clover Hack
We have a special guest that has been testing for us for awhile now who has created a hack for Clover that we think you might enjoy.
Some New Gift Giving Patterns
A bunch of new patterns this month just in time for holiday handmade gifts that don't take a lot of time.
The Sandfly Sheet Protector

I need to remember these moments are part of a journey and what overwhelms me today may not be so intimidating in a year or so. Timing really is everything.
