Nelleke Gaafmachine

I’ve had the pleasure to work with Nelleke on a few projects and I love her styling – she always chooses great fabrics. Her daughter preferred a shorter length and I love how cute it turned out!


Emi – Just Add Fabric
Emi has become such a dear friend and is pretty much a professional tester and a grammar queen. She created THREE beautiful versions and you have to check her post to see them all – stunning as always! If you are around the sewing community you are probably friends with Emi too – she is just the best!


Leslie – Thread Bear Garments
Leslie is so lovely and relatable and I love her style! When she told me she was going to use this gorgeous Nani Iro during testing I tried not to have a heart attack – but all was well and the results are stunning!


Brooke – Idle Sunshine
This is the first time I had the pleasure to work with Brooke and then I received her photos and I was blown away! I can’t get over how amazing her dress turned out…now I want to get my hands on that fabric!


Anita – My Own Sweet Melody (Aria)
It was also the first time I was able to work with Anita and she was such an awesome and speedy tester – I could not believe it! I love these photos on a friend’s farm, just gorgeous!


Natasha – Ellie’s Handmade
Natasha has a gorgeous online children’s boutique and this large floral version took my breath away! For those of you who don’t sew but would like a Cascade Maxi, I believe you will be able to buy them soon on her site. Make sure to check it out!


Mie – Mie Made Memories
I love Mie’s style…from everything she makes to the photos she takes – I’m a total fan! I promise you will be too!


Thao – Little Cumquat
I have been lucky to work with Thao a few times and she is an amazing seamstress and gives awesome feedback and suggestions. I love this fun dress!


Indu – Kaleidothought
Indu has tested all of my patterns, she has always been such a pleasure to work with. Her daughter reminds me so much of my little one, it makes me wish they could meet!
