Hi friends! So sorry for the LONG hiatus from blogging - I've been in Japan!!

It's been such an amazing time so far and I wanted to share some of the photos. Back to regularly scheduled dressmaking/DIY programming this week!

I've been splitting my time between Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka with day trips to Kobe, Nara, and Himeji and it's been such an incredible experience. This is my first time to Japan, so I'm going a bit crazy stopping and OMG-ing every five minutes!

The castles. The views. The views from castles. I've been speechless on this trip more than I have in my entire life.
