I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Mine was pretty cool - party at my sis's, hanging with friends, movies with family and fun stuff all around. And I love when I check my mailbox and there's something fun in it!
I got a great package from So I Sewed This and I couldn't believe all the goodies that were in the box! Look!
How sweet is that! Yay!! There are two that I really want to sew up first:
Ok, so is it just me or is this dress really cute? I don't know why I like it so much but I do, maybe it's that neckline. I can see it with less gathers around the waist and a shorter dress (about the knees) in winter white, colored tights, some really nice leather boots in camel or whiskey (time to go shopping!!) and a fitted jacket. What do you think? Ideas? Tell me about it!
I checked the copyright date and it says 1985 (I have an odd obsession with dates, I like to know when things were done). It's Simplicity 6789. This will probably be the only version of this dress that I make since the other versions have poofy sleeves and I'm not into that.
The second one is:
The next one was printed in 1974 and would've cost you $1.25 at the pattern counter. It's Simplicity 6554. I wonder where you could've brought this? Woolworth maybe? I kinda miss Woolworth's, it's a shame it's gone now. Anyhow, this is a 10 - 12 button shirtdress ~ how cool is that! I haven't done anything with buttons yet so that'll be new for me. One thing I'll leave out is that big pointy collar. Haha - I'm not taking it THAT far back!
And the other two are:
|Change some minor details and you've got a modern dress|
|I see some cute nighties coming out of this pattern.|
So that was a fun package to receive. Thanks again So I Sewed This! You're awesome :)
But that wasn't all the fun in my mailbox.
I got the Renfrew top from Sewaholic and I ordered the Velma belt kit and Colette Clovers from A Fashionable Stitch. So happy with all this! And the shipping was so quick. I am definitely going to shop from these talented ladies again :) Now, if only I could sew so quickly....
So whew! That's a LOT of stuff just added to my to-do list! And I'm still waiting for more good stuff to be delivered ;)
There's so much more to tell but that'll have to be another post because this one is too long already. Enjoy your Monday! :)
