This week I saw a package in my work mailbox. I expected another task, forms to fill out or something work related.
Instead, I got this!
A package from McCall’s. To be honest, I ordered patterns while I was on vacation last month (because of the big McCall’s/Butterick/Vogue sale) and forgot what I ordered.
I noted this skirt pattern, Butterick 5756, when it was released. I can’t remember why I chose the blouse pattern. I think it could work as a light jacket with the long sleeves. The bag pattern was a whim. Hoping to make some gifts. Not the best pattern choices for me. Must have been the California heat stroke.
Holy retro, Batman! I love the dress, Butterick 5747, and the dressing gown is what I wear in my fantasy life in my head. Sort of fantasy sewing.
My first Fashion Star pattern. Love the high waist tie. Wouldn’t it be nice with a contrasting colour? And Butterick 5750 which is so pretty. Nice for summer…likely not this summer at the rate I’m going.
Once again, more planning than actual sewing.
