Six new patterns! How did that happen? With such lovely inspiration in my blog reader, it’s hardly surprising really!
Today I swapped actual sewing time, for dreaming of sewing time, which led to the purchasing the following patterns from Sew Squirrel. BTW, I was looking at Liberty Tana Lawn online last night, so this was the cheaper option!
Hazel by Victory Patterns – Because when you have two patterns by one company in your cart, what the heck, throw in one more!
Violet by Colette – I decided long ago that I didn’t need this pattern. I already own two similar ones… the Banksia Top and the Airelle Blouse (well, I think they are kinda similar) and I’m yet to make either of them. But then Amy of SewAmySew posted this review and Violet became a forgone purchasing conclusion!
Pendrell Blouse by Sewaholic – I’ve seen lots of lovely Pendrell’s over the past two years, but I wasn’t sure about this shape for me (and my thick waist) until Rosi made a version with extra ‘tummy room’ for her postpartum bump and I saw the potential!
And finally, the Victoria Blazer by By Hand London. I’ve been looking at the pattern photos and wondering. Without a line drawing (why don’t they have one?) I just couldn’t work it out if it was my kind of jacket. I’m drawn to the cropped version and this review, was what tipped me over the edge.
This jacket pattern might just be the one for my 2013 Sewlution… I Blogless Anna, will sew a jacket and/or coat with a lining in 2013. Although, I keep changing my mind on what pattern to use… I think that’s called procrastination!
Have you being adding to your pattern stash lately? Do tell, it might make me feel a little less guilty!
