After reading several reviews of Jalie 2561, I’ve decided that I’m definately going to get this pattern. So before I got this one, I wanted to know if new patterns are going to be released for fall…….And they are!
I’m not disciplined enough to participate in SWAPs (Sewing With A Plan), so I’ve been thinking about joining a Swap – a Summer Bag Swap! I’ve never done one before (but it sure sounds like fun) and would like to know people’s experiences (good and bad) with them before I commit. So, send me your emails or post your comments here and help me decide!
I am happy to report, the Built by Wendy City Shorts are now complete! Everything else went together without a hitch!
To quote the immortal words of Homer Simpson, DOH! I so desprately want these City Shorts to work and now I’ve come across a few problems – all of which are my fault.
It’s that time again – fall pattern previews. Simplicity beat out the crowd by releasing their patterns first. I’ve already picked up a number of new ones that they’ve released – I’m really impressed with the direction they are taking their patterns!
Burda just released their new fall collection. I’m really not sure how I feel about these patterns – nothing jumped out at me and most of what I saw looked like an ’80’s remix (this page has the knickers and riding pants with the high neck blouses, some with ties).
I got to work on my City Shorts and I believe that the hardest part is over – the zip fly!
