Patterns, Please

Not to let a pattern sale pass, after church I went to Jo's and bought a few McCalls and one Vogue pattern. After all, this is the last day of the sale!



Vogue1066 is that great pant pattern from Badgley Mischka that a couple of people have made recently. Tabs, decorative belt loops and channel stitched waistband set these pants apart from the ordinary. Doncha' just love Badgley Mischka?


M5894 is the latest of Palmer/Pletsch jeans patterns.
M5592is a flared leg jean pattern. I like the cropped length version. It seems I am trying to collect every jean pattern out there!


M56161 Palmer/Pletsch top pattern. Good tops to wear under suits. M5929 is a new blouse pattern. It features ruffles down the fronts, but what I especially like is the "v"neckline with a collar. I like the look of the neckline being open, rather than the standard closing at CF.


Also, I bought a bolt of muslin for all the fittings of these patterns!


And, that's it until the next pattern sale. I have a list of Butterick and Simplicity. Do not show me anything that I have to add to that list!


Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th !

Lovely patterns! Happy sewing!! I was just straightening my sewing room a while ago and found the boxes of my "out of date" patterns. I really need to look at them. I may discover some really cool vintage looks.

Cindy said...

I bought a few too! Do you know when the next sale is for Simplicity?

Julia said...

I would love to make you a gift. Send me your address to my email and I'll make you a purse organizer.

The blouse patterns look good, especially the second one. I like the open neckline

Faye Lewis said...

Nice pattern picks.

You must have an amazing collection of patterns! Great choices that will keep you busy!

Linda said...

Nice patterns! I purchased two McCall's patterns at JoAnn's for 99 cents, both were blouse patterns.

Let's not talk about how many patterns made it into my cart -- after two trips to the store. And my Butterick list? Pluuease. I really have to start getting rid of patterns that I've already used - otherwise, my patterns are going to need a room of their own -- separate from the fabric. Oh vay!!

Hi Gwen, thank you for visiting my blog and for the nice comment. I have the McCall's top pattern as well as the Vogue which I really only want to use to make the pants.
I was reading your previous post.I've been wanting to make tucks on something. I'll be referring back to it when the time comes.

Rachel said...

You got some great patterns. I wish there was a JoAnn's near me. I don't even think there is on in my state, though.

It's so hard for me to pass up a good pattern sale, too.

I'm glad to hear that you like the orange skirt because I was undecided. It gives me the courage to make something with it. I didn't think people would like it. Someone suggested that I raise it above the waist and add a knit bodice to make it into a maxi. I'm considering doing that. I love maxi dresses.

I really love Nora Jones as well. Her voice has a unique quality to it and is also very relaxing to listen to.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and give me your input. It is very helpful.

Have a blessed day!

What I want to know is who invented housework? Thankfully, I'm almost done. I think I overestimated the messiness. It's not that bad at all -- just some things out of place. I still don't like it though.

Uta said...

I like the McCall's top pattern. It seems you'll be busy for a while! And muslining it all... I admire your dedication!

Faye Lewis said...

Thank you so much Gwen.
