Joining the Pattern Challenge

With all those still unused sewing patterns lying around, I just had to join the Pattern Challenge over at Come And See The Seitz.

Alternative

Sarah asks of the participants of the challenge to put into writing our goals, so here are mine. With summer coming up (I know, I know, it’s still quite a bit away.), I’d like to finish the following projects (the patterns and some of the fabrics I’ll use are already in my possession):

The patterns are (from left to right):
1. McCall’s M5880 2. Amy Butler’s Cabo Halter 3. McCall’s M5653
4. Vogue V8553 5. McCall’s M5662 6. Vogue V1086
7. McCall’s M5586 8. McCall’s M5425 9. Vogue V8241

I think I’m going to be able to give quite a realistic review of these patterns, as they are mostly labelled as being “very easy”, so ideal for me as a newbie to sewing clothes. I’ll take lots of pictures and quite a few of them will probably include a seam ripper, but hey, that’s the way to learn, isn’t it?

Treasure Hunt

Oh, don’t you just love discovering hidden gems in thrift stores? I did so on a recent trip to one of those shops (well, actually I even returned for a second round of treasure hunting…).

I bought a variety of things, from zippers in all lengths and colours, to trims and a sewing book and, of course, a lot of fabric.

Cotton, Linen, Jersey, you name it! And of course in lots of different colours…

So let’s just hope I’ll soon have the time to make good use of all my new goodies! =)
