{coming soon}

There is something to be said in favor of nesting. This past week I have been crawling out of my skin to get things done even though I still have a while before the baby arrives. Yesterday I made a small baby quilt and a new cupcake pincushion, just 'cause. Surprisingly, except for the baby quilt, I've done very little to prepare for this baby. I guess the second time around (or third, whatever this is) all the "stuff" isn't necessary. Good thing too since I've preoccupied myself with other things.
I began to re-draft the trouser pattern that I started almost a year ago. I changed the design a little from what's pictured to achieve the look of a more tailored pant and I think it's going to be great! Look for the pattern release by the end of next week!

Welcome to the new blog and thanks for stopping in! My self-imposed maternity leave has officially begun. Simply, that means I'm talking a break from Georgia Grace (you may still find a sample here or there at great prices) and focus on bringing you the magic behind the scenes. I'm forcing myself to complete the four patterns that I've been working on for the last few months, as well as, revamping the Pop-Over Pinafore pattern to include larger sizes and some alternate design options. Grain and Gusset will remain open and stocked with fabulous pattern, fabric, kits, and supplies for all of your creative sewing needs.
Here on the blog you will find information regarding pattern releases, sewing instruction, free patterns and projects, and most likely a little sprinkling of me! First up on the list is to give this blog a more polished look in the next week. Stay tuned and feel free to send any tips, suggestions, or a pattern wish list my way!
