About Bronwyn Westmore

I am a massive word nerd and English is my first love; reading books and collecting dictionaries rank quite high on my To Do List (after sewing aaaaalllll the things, obviously). My favourite dinosaur is a Thesaurus, I'm a firm believer in the Oxford comma, and I think it's nice that Voldemort always waited until the end of the school year to launch an attack on Harry. Despite all his flaws, Voldemort obviously cared about education. I'm a work-from-home dog mom (Harry Potter and Dark Vega) and I basically live on social media, write a bunch of stuff, and drink copious amounts of tea. Sewing and social media in one beautiful package are my happy place!

    This is such a beautiful dress. Is there a straight sleeve adaptation coming soon? I would love this with a 3/4 or bracelet length plain sleeve.
