Because black is how I feel on the inside

The reason for my long absence from this blog is the same reason I’m making my latest dress. My mom passed away this December after a long and extremely brave battle with cancer. As anyone who has gone through something like this knows, cancer is a real motherfucker and watching a loved one die is difficult, surreal and god damned painful. But I don’t come from people who mope, so I’ve been trying to channel at least some of my grief into sewing.
