Alexander Henry Fabrics

I love Alexander Henry Fabrics. I placed an order at the international textile show in L.A. last month, and I called AH to get a status on my order. It was shipped out today! I'm getting this print in three colorways (that is textile-speak for background color).

I should have the "Yui Kokeshi" print in stock and on the website by Friday. Please check back then!

Love European inspired patterns? I know I do.
I've been sewing forever and the big challenge is to adjust american patterns. I'm not sure how they grade the patterns, but I don't think each size is tested on a real person, especially for childrens wear. Unless you have the right sized dress form, or a kid that is willing to be fitted, sizing can be a nightmare.

Farbenmix patterns are one of my favorites. I think they tested each size on a real kid because I am consistantly impressed with the finished results. Each size fits well. The only thing I notice is that the dress straps are longer than what I like, so it is just a quick adjustment. I'm offering them in my eBay store and website. You can get better images of the patterns at the eBay store, but better prices on the website.

Let me know what you think! :)
