Summer Ready with the Runabout Romper by P4P

I've never thought of myself as a romper girl.  Something about a top-to-bottom outfit that isn't a dress just messes with my head and I'm not always ready for it.  The thing is...testing new patterns always pushes me outside of my typical style choice and comfort...

May the 4th Be With You, 2020

Next to Halloween, today is my favorite holiday ever.  May the 4th Be With You, my friends.  Every year, I look forward to making new themed outfits for the three of us to wear. But let's be honest with ourselves...I make Star Wars clothing year round.  It's just that...

Leopard is a Neutral, but this Sporty Piko is Not Even Close

I would never forgive myself if I didn't share this version of the Sporty Piko with you.  Much like this version, I sewed it up during testing and then let the pictures go to waste on my computer.  Whomp whomp.  But guess what 2019 Katy?  2020 Katy is here and she's...
