You may have seen, a few weeks ago, we teamed up with Annelaine Patterns and had the most AWESOME Video Party! This was our first time doing something like this, and we had so much fun!

We had a group of really talented ladies who sewed our Fit Pants and/or the Annelaine Coffee & Tea Cardigan. They either hacked the patterns and made videos explaining what they did, or they sewed them and made videos with fun and helpful tips.

If you have not already watched the videos, we encourage you to check them out! These ladies worked so hard to make this video party happen, and I bet you’ll be able to find some really helpful tips too!
