Holm Sown: Grainline Studio Moss Skirt - navy cotton twill

An everyday Moss Skirt in navy twill

So the Archer Shirt by Grainline Studio has been on my to-sew list forever.  I bought the pattern back in January 2014 where it has been waiting patiently to finally make it to the top of the queue.  As part of my shirt-making kick I’ve been trying to sew patterns from different pattern companies as […]

Holm Sown: Grainline Studio Driftless Cardigan in Art Gallery Knit Deep Dark Ocean // front

Grainline Studio Driftless Cardigan – a wardobe staple
