So excited to receive my village frock pattern from these talented gals. I have plans for Christmas frocks for the girlies made out of some creme and black toile that has been gathering dust. Ah, plans. We'll see if I can make it come to fruition. I also bought some dark denim after seeing one made in denim on flickr and falling in love.
The brown paper envelope was hand addressed to me, with some pen flourishes! And the instruction book has been zig zagged down the fold with blue thread. All the illustrations as well as the pattern itself are hand drawn, not computer illustrated. So unique, just like the ladies who made it. I have done no more than flip through the book and dream in my head, but hopefully soon I'll be cutting.
I have been trolling around looking at other's village frock creations and I'm just floored by the cuteness. Wish me luck!
