Just in the event I should run low on patterns, I bought some last weekend, when Simplicity was on sale
I found a poly/rayon fabric that I think will work nicely for the long shirt/jacket in a previous post. A friend suggested this NewLook pattern. After buying it and looking at it, I see there is no front band, but just topstitched to simulate the look of a band. Also, there's no collar band, but a rolled collar. I'll probably use a tailored shirt pattern but keep this pattern out for inspiration.
Finally, I got a couple of old books off the grab table at the sewing club. I haven't looked through them yet, so they may, or may not, find a home here.
