I'm not complaining, really I am not, this is more of a cautionary tale for my fellow Canucks. If you want and or need your patterns quickly, don't order online, or order far in advance. Considering the Canadian Price for a Vogue is minimum $3 more here than in the US, and Fabricland's best deal is half price, I really couldn't afford to buy this many patterns any other way. It isn't like I can sew any of them right now anyway, now that I am on my way to becoming a thin gorgeous supermodel. That all of you will be jealous of, oh yes, I know you will.
Now I can fondle them, and talk to them and tell them what they are going to be when they grow up. I get to visit the stash closet and fantasize about what fabric I am going to use for what pattern. Such fun.
Do you want to see them? Of course you do.
|McCalls 6511-I love the piecing on this one. I probably could have figured it out myself, but it was $1.99.|
Vogue 8810-is exactly the style of dress that works on my body, I like the different views
|Vogue 8620 and 8690, what can I say? I worship at the altar of the Tiltons.|
|Vogue 8793-another Tilton, I love this top. Love.|
Vogue 8804-The Claire Shaeffer Chanel jacket. When I am at goal, I will make this and it will be my present to myself.
|Last but not least. Vogue 1277-I think I will start this in the fall, a winter coat can be oversized. |
I am going to make this entirely from my stash.
Something else found a home with me this week. I had resisted buying this book, because, I admit, I have more sewing books than I need, and Colette patterns are more body conscious than I am comfortable wearing right now. After making the Sorbetto several times, I became a fan of Sarai's and as I am losing weight and getting fit, the patterns won't be totally ridiculous on me when I am done.
|I am going to make this blouse this summer, it is so cute and I don't care if it won't fit for long.|
