Wednesday Weekly #63

Hi there, makers! I would like to start this week’s round-up with an addendum from last week.  I made a mistake in the weekly #61, and I feel terrible about it!  I shared the latest line of patterns from Capitol Chic and said I was “not intrigued by the Gimlet dress“, which is the opposite of true.  I am incredibly intrigued by it (how could you not be – that neckline!).  The error has been fixed now. My hope is that most of you saw it for the mistake it was, because I try to make sure this roundup is a positive place where we support each other. Special thanks to a reader who emailed me to point out my error! You are the best 🙂
