If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my Bloglovin’ feed. Thanks for visiting!It’s no secret that most of my sewing projects on this blog for the past few years have been with fabrics I’ve bought in the downtown Los Angeles fabric district, or the many estate sales I used to go to […]

A Maritime Breton Tee in Textured Cotton

Back in the late 90’s when we had our little place in Languedoc, France, we used to go to a nearby fishing port called Sete. Being an American, I wasn’t yet familiar with the history of the French Mariniere shirt. I saw many people wearing them, and bought one for each member of our little […]
