One thought on “Stitch with Style 2013

  1. Is there anyway I can get the instructions for the Easy Kimono Sleeve Dress? I don;t want to have to suscribe to the magazine, or have to buy the whole magazine just for some instructions. I’m just a little confused with how the front bodice matches with the front skirt.
