Sew Over It Heather Dress – black and white houndstooth

When Sew Over It released the Heather Dress I was totally smitten with it.  The style of it is right up my street and those curvy hip pockets looked oh-so practical and great for keeping my hands warm on cold winter days in the shop.  When they did a 20% Black Friday discount on their […]
