So here's what I got:
Vogue 1056 - a Tom and Linda Platt pattern
I love the twist on this one...and it's high enough that it's different from those Burda & Big 4 twist top dresses.
Vogue 1057 - A DKNY 2pc dress and jacket combo
I have wanted this pattern ever since I snoop shopped it in Macy's last year...now of course I also own the summer version of this pattern but the economy needs stimulating, and I really like the u-neckline on this version...so I bought it too!
I like the insert around the waist. It will nip me in and make me look like I actually have a waist! And I already have fabric in mind for it...
Vogue 8509 - a Dress
C'mon you knew I was buying this pattern...it's a dress and a pretty one with distinctive details! Not another one of those sacks that they've been selling a lot of lately! I will stitch the pleats down a little further and in a rayon challis will have an amazing dress for fall!
I actually see this as a dress...lengthen the tunic, keep it a little close-fitting so that I don't get that "when is the baby due" stare and it should be a really kewl fall dress!
As a member of ClubBMV - I did get them for $6.29 per pattern and I know, I know about your J and Hancock sales but the first place I just don't patronize and the second chain is not in my area...so I have to settle for online sales. But my size is always in stock, they arrive quickly and settle down nicely into my pattern collection to wait their turn in the sunlight!
So can you tell that I didn't sew this weekend?! *LOL* I am reduced to sharing patterns with you...seriously though after about six weeks of non-stop sewing I just needed a minute to recharge my batteries...more finished garments soon! And just in case you didn't get the email...patterns are $6.99 today and tomorrow...the sale ends midnight tomorrow CST! Happy hunting!
