When is a Sewaholic Hollyburn, not a Sewaholic Hollyburn?

Perhaps, when you almost don't have enough fabric to finish it! I've been bustin' through my stash and so far, have made a flowered vintage dress and a red Sewaholic Hollyburn.  Next I thought I would make a black Sewaholic Hollyburn - you can see the link to the pattern company here:  Sewaholic Hollyburn.  I… Continue reading When is a Sewaholic Hollyburn, not a Sewaholic Hollyburn?
