Adriette was my grandma's nickname for me, as she supervised my first sewing steps, when I was 8. After a long series of cicada printed lavender bags (Provence style), I put sewing aside for 20 years, before diving back in 200% when my oldest was born (like quite a few seamstresses). Now, I sew for my kids, my friends and myself. So when I design a fun garnment, and people like it, I just have to share!
