Do you love dresses? Linda Thorne loves making dresses. In fact, she wears a me-made dress pretty much every day.

Even at home on a no make-up Sunday, Linda will wear one of her beautiful floral dresses and never feels overdressed. Linda is a librarian, a tutu maker and a creator of a me-made wardrobe, mostly dresses of course. We talk all about that and more such as why she converted to PDF patterns and how she is giving some of her dresses a new life.
