sizing question

Lindsey asked me how I size sky&boat and this is what I said:
I used to do sizes 1, 2, 3 which meant s, m, l, but I found myself explaining that to everyone, so then I switched to s, m, l. stores were concerned that the large wasn't big enough so I added xl. There is no size standard for the whole industry, every brand fits differently, but when I am asked what sizes does a medium fit I have estimated the number equivalent so that I can answer : small= 2-4, medium=6-8, large=10-12, and xl= 14-16, and because of the fabrics I use I can also say that because my clothes are stretchy they will fit a variety of body types.

i have pattern hooks!


i have a box of pattern hooks, 140 to be exact, and if you want to purchase some of them let me know because that's a helluva lot of hooks. to answer your question, heather, they are like a hanger hook with a string and a little t-shaped piece of metal at the bottom, so you can hook all of your pattern pieces together and hang them up. they are really quite handy.

as for what's next... i really think we should consider the art institute mentor deal - we'd get paid. also, we could have a fabric sale? or a sample sale? something fun.

pattern hooks anyone?

the time has come to order some more pattern hooks from atlas levy. they used to sell them individually, but they no longer do, so the only other option is a box of 150 for $25. I obviously don't need that many, so I was wondering if anyone wants to go in on them with me? Here's the link.
