I got a book by special delivery today... not just any book, MY book! Sarah Markos' and mine, actually. It's so weird and unreal. We've been dreaming, planning, talking, and working on this for over two years and now there is an actual book!
Stash Books (an imprint of C&T Publishing) did such a fabulous job on the photography and layout for us. They asked us for ideas and we suggested styling it like a fancy magazine... something in between Mollie Makes and Marie Claire. It's exactly what Sarah and I wanted.
Since the theme is 'selfish sewing,' we filled it with tote bags, scarves, skirts, pouches, and of course dresses! You're gonna see some really up and coming designers in here, such as Sara Lawson, Delia Randall, and Amy Smart.
The print edition of Just For You will be available to purchase on October 15th, but the eBook edition is available now for even less! It includes a downloadable and printable file of everything, including the pattern sheets.
And how would you like to win Just for You plus a bunch of other sweet books from C&T Publishing?
Right now, C&T is running a giveaway called Win Your Wishlist.

Thanks for reading, this... I know I keep repeating it but it's so weird and amazing to see your own name on a book!
