Oh my, this week is pattern intensive. Very pattern intensive and in a good way.
I have finally finished tweaking the BurdaStyle wrap blouse pattern and will tonight cut it out for real. I am ever so proud of myself for doing all the alterations ‘properly’ as it is a first for me.
That’s pretty darn exciting. Yes ’tis. But there’s more.
I won this little lovely in a Pendle Stitches giveaway. Thank you thank you Evie.
However, it doesn’t stop there. From my very kind neighbour :
And it keeps comin’. Look what I found today at a couple of the local op/thrift shops:
In case you’re wondering, the gingham is 3m ‘vintage’ cotton for $5 and the lace is cotton for $1 a pop.
But STOP. Will you look at the Vogue gown pattern. Just look! Gorgeous. Simple and gorgeous. The long version requires a scant 10-11 yards of fabric and I have no need for a wedding gown but. Well. Wouldn’t you? And PS the middle right hand vintage pattern is a doll pattern. So stylish – beats Barbie hands down.
