Second Chances and All the Thankfulness


So a few months back, I received the second chance of a life time!

I applied for a social media marketing position posted by Petite Stitchery

I thought it would be a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a newer pattern company. What was to come is the stuff dreams are made of!

Shortly after I applied, I received a message asking me to join their team as a designer instead. WHAT?!?!?!?!


I was jumping for joy in the park on one of the last warm days of August before fall set in.

Since then, we have released FOUR free patterns and two women’s patterns. We even put out some SUPER CUTE (!!) batty bows  for halloween!

The Rory Dress and Skirt was my very first pattern (and I’m working on the girls version now!) and it was such an incredible experience.

The Lulu released with Rory and is a killer cozy sweater.

Then there was the Swanky Tank (women’s) and the girls and babies Sweetie Leggings and Snuggle Top! I only have snuggle wear pictures because my daughter was having a rough night and the pictures all had MAJOR RBF… death-stare level. I will be making more soon, though, because the tank is BOMB!


There is sooooo much more coming too! I just finished designing my next two patterns and we have some fun Christmas freebies come also.

I truly never thought I would have an opportunity to be on a team…to work with seriously amazing ladies on creating patterns to help women feel beautiful in clothes they made themselves, clothes perfectly fitted to their bodies! It is a seriously amazing opportunity and I pinch myself daily when I realize I get to do work I love so fiercely. I am sooooo lucky. and I am endlessly thankful!

What are you thankful for?

Happy Sewing!
