my Vogue Patterns article on Anna Heylen

My article on Maison Anna Heylen is in this month's issue of Vogue Patterns Magazine.


It's not online anywhere, only print. Here's a preview:


I'm totally stoked about this because I've been a fan of Anna's work for a long time, and I visit the atelier whenever I'm in Antwerp. (Pics thisaway!) And because I looove love love Vogue Patterns; I read every issue cover to cover and keep them all. So I'm really happy to have the opportunity to write for them.

This took about a year to put together, between interviewing Anna (who is lovely), writing, editing, gathering photos and pattern-testing, because it also includes instructions for making one of her accordion-pleat puff sleeve. I'm dying to put one on a jacket at some point, after I practice some more.

It's out! I can't believe it's out! Yay.

In other news, we had a foster failure and wound up adopting this guy:


His name is Jack-Jack and his hobbies are stealing food and lounging on the seersucker I'm using for my Rachel Comey dress. He's cute.

  1. That's fantastic! I'll have to pick that issue up! And congrats on the Jack-Jack. He's got quite a determined look there.

    1. Thanks so much! He really is -- one of the reasons we're keeping him. :)
