Pattern Envy

5 Aug

So even though I have 6+ projects sitting on the table waiting to be sewed and worn… and only 17 days and counting to finish them, I may be buying another pattern.

This Mccalls pattern is truly amazing and I just got a beautiful rayon challis (see below)  in the mail that I have been waiting for for more than a month… Wouldn’t you know it, Challis is EXACTLY what this pattern calls for.


I think I need it!

and seriously would that dress not look stunningly professional and sheek in this beauty of a fabric (which a promise you is even better in person than in the pictures).

… and there was great rejoicing!


posts to come later in the day after a photo shoot – the week of the back pain finally being conquered.  I promise this is actually worth the wait!

Just thought I’d share with ya’ll, Vogue patterns is having a sale!  All their patterns, including the designer patterns, are on sale for only $4.99.

What are your favorites.  Unlimited budget what would you make and how?

I think my favorite is the Chado Ralph Rucci suit dress.

Beautiful, so sheek in black, so girly in pink  I love this outfit!  I think maybe the ruffles on both hems and the sleeves is a bit much, I might leave one set off…  I think this could be super sheek in a black, maybe heavy wool/silk blend, or fun and flirty in a pink silk duiponi (yes, I’m a girly girl).

How about you?
