Today’s Pattern Story: McCalls 4119

by Erin on June 18, 2012

Today’s pattern from Michelle at Patterns from the Past.

Ditto what Emily said.

BTW I loved your book The Secret Lives of Dresses!

Ha! “Mixo-Lydian”–could it be that I’ve found another fan of Angela Thirkell and her wonderfully wordy novels in which nothing ever happens?

Yes. :-)
