Do you read A Dress A Day? That Erin is funny. And has mad dressmaking skillz. She featured the McCalls 8335 pattern (shown above, left) one day as her Pattern Story feature. I fell in love. Found it somewhere, etsy or ebay, can't remember which. (Random: every time I type the word ebay, I type ebaby instead. Every. Time.) (Like the last two times in this paragraph. No lie. Even when I was typing it to complain how I mistype it.)
The Butterick 4692 pattern was purchased on impulse when I was on an etsy troll for tunic patterns. I may have been a bit over excited. But it could be good as a dress. Just longer than shown.
How did I not know about Sew Liberated's Schoolhouse Tunic until now? Maybe late to this party. Love what I've seen on flickr, especially this one with the added ruffles. I'm very excited to try it.
And the duro dress, Simplicity 3875. Another fever set off by Erin at A Dress A Day. Robyn has made one from this pattern and since the bodice turned out too short for her it might do well for me, Larissa Short Pockets. We shall see!
I've never sewn a Vogue pattern. Found this one (2690) in the bargain bin at the local thrift shop and thought I'd try it sometime. It's been in the drawer forgotten for a few years. Looks fairly simple. Maybe worth a try.
And lastly this McCalls Easy Knits 3133 from the thrift store. Just because it says "A Pounds Thinner Pattern". And because I am ready to try some knits right after I learn to use this:
It came with a CD and a user's manual. I cannot wait to get into it, but I have some projects that need to be done before I do. I love user manuals. I know, it's a little strange.
