I stopped by Joann’s after work to take advantage of their sale on McCall’s and Vogue Patterns. With the exception of the Colette Macaron pattern, I hearby solemnly vow to not purchase any new patterns for 6 months. It’s getting a little out of control on my end. I live in a *very* small apartment and my allotted plastic bin for storing patterns is *full*. Plus, I have a limited amount of money, so I should probably buy fabric and make some of this stuff instead of buying new patterns. Here’s a little show and tell of what I picked up today.
I got these three designer Vogue patterns. The Chado pattern is a classic shirtdress with a twist. I love love love shirtdresses. The Michael Kors is super sassy, and I’ve seen some cute versions made up. The Rebecca Taylor is summery and fun (possible birthday dress). WIN!
I like this coat pattern a lot! It reminds me of the Lady Grey, but it has a hood. I hate how hard it is to find a fashionable coat that includes a hood. I live in Oregon ya’ll! It rains 9 months of the year. I also like hats (prob because of all the aforementioned rain), I’d like to try my hand at making some with scrap fabric.
Here are the rest, mostly just summer dresses and the bustier top (I promise I won’t add the flounce to the bottom EWWW). As for the top left, i know the pattern cover is hideous, but the line drawing shows a nice military inspired jacket. I dig it.
I have three days off of work this week, so I will probably have some actual sewing to show off soon. Until then…
