Guest Post: Tula Pink on Plume

First off, big thanks to True Up for inviting me back to talk about Plume, my newest collection for Moda Fabrics. Plume was an opportunity for me to go a little bit further in my design process. The main goal was to drown in detail, the kind of detail that you need muck boots to [...]
