Black Denim Jacket Ethan Flip

We accepted Frances Suzanne’s challenge to flip the Ethan Shirt by Sis Boom.  Of course, first of all we had to sew an unflipped version of the Ethan Shirt, but we’ll get to that another time.  When we can get the boy convinced to show his face on a SKIRT blog! I knew I wantedContinue reading “Black Denim Jacket Ethan Flip”
