Patterns Please

Judging from the feedback on my last post, many bloggers agree that we enjoy reading these sewing blogs, and that we shouldn't feel pressured to produce. Good thing as slow as I am! Actually, I am sewing, but I'm doing some Holiday sewing and cannot blog it right now. My time has been limited lately, but I had a great sewing weekend. I do keep up with your blogs as best I can, and when I can't physically sew, I sew vicariously through you.

In addition to enjoying your posts, you are also enablers. A couple of weeks ago, I bought three patterns during the sale at Jo's, that I've seen on you. And here they are.

V8605 is a jacket/coat. Diana of Sew Passionista made the jacket version. She sews a lot of designer patterns, such as Sewing Workshop, and looks fabulous in them.

Amanda made the pleated yoke version of B5284. I admire the way she finishes the seams of her garments. She makes french seams, Hong Kong seams, and uses bias tape for some. The inside of her garments are as nicely finished as the outside.

You all know Shannon's blog. She was sewing like the wind this summer. She made B4986, and of course, she's cute as a button in it.

I found a blog unfamiliar to me. It is . Shams loves funky clothing, and seeks out designer patterns as well as drafting some very unusual pieces. Drop by her blog and check out what she's doing. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Have a great week! Make it count!

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 !
