When I make my designs, I strive for fashion forward modifications on the types of clothes my kids and I wear every day, so the items I sew get plenty of wear, and the items I wear every day fit perfectly.

And to be honest, I don't know if I have achieved 'fashion forward' (this 39 year old has been living in kid land too long to really be cutting edge, and I don't know if I was anywhere near it to start with) but we really do love our patterns, and I hope you do too.
