Eternity was brought to my attention by someone looking for the pattern from The Queenie Sisters. I asked the Girls why I didn’t know about this piece and well, could they make one for me? It took many months and was worth the wait because everyone who saw the garment at her unveiling at Stitches Midwest was smitten.
