        Did you like the stitch pattern on BH? I think I’ll try the arm warmers first.

        Speaking of hibernating, I just frogged my Audrey because I missed the waist shaping and then convinced myself that I needed to make a larger size at the same time.

    I love this series! It’s so much fun to get a sneak peek into the minds of my favourite designers. I love Jane’s work and her attention to every little detail. You are so right, a simple aesthetic does not mean a “simple” design.
