I’ve been spending my allowance on sewing patterns this last month, and they’ve been arriving like hotcakes! Is there anything better than getting presents in the mail? Not much, let me tell ya!
These pajamas are going to be so awesome – I can’t wait to make a set or three. This is an intermediate level pattern, so will stretch my skills with collars, cuffs, button bands and piping.
Closet Case Files is located in Montreal. The Carolyn pajama pattern has gotten great reviews.
I really do want to learn to make my own clothes. To that end, I’ve purchased a couple of Craftsy sewing classes. Bonus: they come with patterns!
Vogue 8793 is by designer Katherine Tilton.
…and Vogue 9057 is by her sister, designer Marcy Tilton.
The Tilton sisters co-teach the class. I’ll do a review of the class once I’ve done it.
Both will be great additions to my winter wardrobe.
Today’s mail brought a parcel from Collette Patterns, in Portland, Oregon.
The Rooibos Dress – fabulous design details:
The Lily Dress – more fabulous design details:
The Laurel Dress – classic shift with lots of options:
The Crepe Dress – a wrap dress that ties in the back:
That should keep me going for a good long while, eh? 🙂
…and now for the letter K in the April A-Z Blogger’s challenge:
This is the advanced version of the Cobra pose: King Cobra.
A lovely pose that I am content to admire from afar. 🙂
