I was hoping to get this pattern which Sarah from Goodbye Valentino made up so well. I loved the ruffle detail and the higher waist and thought it would suit the new Spring Plan very well. Unfortunately we are a season behind and it is in the new Fall patterns in the US, if I want it I need to order it online. But never fear I still managed to come away with a few new patterns - I was very restrained.
Reading other blogs is dangerous to pattern owning health! Seeing what others make and how they interpret the patterns can highlight a pattern that I just need to own. Butterick 5891 by Katherine Tilton is an example - discussion on Stitchers Guild along with the pictures of Martha's version convinced me that I need this for the Plan.
Keeping with the theme I picked up Marcy Tilton's new dress from Vogue 8876 and think the version with the cap sleeves will look good in very fluid viscose fabric.
After the success I had with dresses last summer I am keen to sew more and fell in love with this Tracey Reese version.
Lots of things to think about sewing and I still am working on that velvet dress and hope to have it ready for unveiling by the weekend. My plan of sewing a little each day has been thwarted recently with lots of work and child rearing demands but now with the husband away and the children at school I might get some more done!
