It's August Dear Reader!
To those that don't know I'm on a mission to give away a pattern every month this year.
Digging through my pattern archives I come up with another designer pattern that has been lying about in my stash for decades. It is a very very simple dress with three neckline variations from Calvin Klein 1988. The fabric recommendations are for sumptuous fabric because it is basically a sack - side seams, shoulder seams, dropped shoulder sleeves and a neck facing. That's it. The envelope contains three sizes 6, 8-10 and 12-14. In other words Petite, Small and Medium. It is unfolded and uncut and it has been neglected too long. Set it free in a lurid print and perm your hair!
If you like it and would like to win it and give it a go tell me in the comments by Friday 15th August.
Alas my stash is not really depleting as I've been buying patterns..
A surprisingly warm day last week and pattern sales have conspired to make me go on a bit of a pattern buying spree. I've got two Vogues, two maxi skirt patterns and then two Jalies are coming in the mail - my first Jalies ever!
The Vogues are V9004, the Armani blouse knock off
Then there'sV1349 which doesn't look like anything much on the model but look at the line drawings..
I look at this and see a pieced exercise top in lycra with slimming black side panels and matching leggings.That's what I have planned for it.
But I am getting ahead of myself. I have a bit more winter sewing to go first and I'll be jumping on those Jalies as soon as they arrive. I will probably sew those first and I'll blog about them then. There's also a jacket in the pipline. Too many plans, too little time!
