I finally made something, but it is patternt esting so I can't show you. School is almost over, only three more weeks! I am finally feeling relaxed, the weather is getting nicer and nicer and now I will sew some cute stuff. I organized my sewing area, packed away my Vogue coat until the fall, and went through all my patterns to see which ones would work for Spring/Summer. These are all patterns that I know I will never make, so they will be my belated giveaways starting with Jnauary and February. :0
This is January's giveaway: Please note, these are all teen patterns and are very tiny! I'm talking 28-30 bust. So if you are tiny, or have a tiny tween daughter or really enjoy pattern grading, these 8 patterns are for YOU!
People email me from time to time trying to get me to sell /scan and email/copy and give them my Advance 9077 pattern, for an adorable sundress, which was one of my first projects I ever posted on my blog. I don't know why this pattern in particular is so important, but there is a picture of Marilyn Monroe wearing a similar dress, so maybe that's why?
I have no plans on selling it or doing work for strangers, but maybe people should consider similar options like the Advance 9423 in the center. Only the sleeves are different, all the other pieces are identical. Maybe one of the independent pattern companies should recreate it, certainly people think it's cute.
Feb's giveaway is for six patterns for a 32 inch bust and are kind of a random mix of things...
McCall 6814 coat, McCalls 6018 pyjamas, Simplicity 6498 for more knits.
Thanks for looking at my (not yet abandoned) blog!
