Every time McCall’s has it’s pattern sale, I buy. Okay. Not every time but I gave in this time. I have a fairly large pattern stash but it fits into one IKEA box and one pattern box. It’s not extensive. Just abundant enough.
I got the DKNY blouse and skirt pattern. (Sidebar: Why are the sleeves so short? I feel like they need to be to the wrist or a couple inches shorter than this to look intentionally bracelet length.) And the Badgley Mischka Fields of Dream dress. I could wear this to the Oscars. I didn’t receive my invite to the Academy Awards yet but it might be stuck at the US border…maybe? It’s still early.
I also got the wide-legged trouser pattern that I flipped over when I first saw it. Also the Vogue dress with the A version sci-fi capped sleeves. I want to make this in basic black. The waist yoke will create some texture/dimension.
I also ordered the coat pattern. I don’t remember ordering it. Or why I would have. Unless I saw the finished garment photo (?).
In the white it is gorgeous. Did I picture myself in something for early spring/late fall? I don’t know why I ordered it.
Anyway, I’m stitching away on my polka-dot vintage dress. It’s coming along nicely. Let the bodice out a bit in the centre back and side back seams. I added an inch to the bodice length and I think this was a great add for me. I love a high natural waist but this style with the longer, straighter skirt will look better with a lower waist.
What are you up to? Did you reach your sewing goals for the year?
