I've got people

The mail was good to me yesterday because I've got people! My pattern connection (who shall remain nameless but you know who you are!) graciously went to the Hancock's sale last week and scored the following patterns for me:

I got Simplicity 3744 - The Threads dress! You know the one that you can't buy off the website anymore because its so popular! Yeap its in my hot little hands and I have the perfect fabric for it. So it has made its way onto my sewing list for next week!

I got Simplicity 3777 - Now I know you are wondering what I am going to do with this one because it is a little young-looking but I have a vision. So this one has made its way onto the list for next week, too! I can't wait to sew this one up!

Simplicity 4076 - Erica, I think you have inspired a run on this pattern! It looks so much like the t-shirts that I see in The Gap that I walk by every morning on the way to work that I want one too! I am not planning a white one like yours ~ I see it more as a top with a matching skirt! An easy-peasy fashion forward outfit for those hot summer days!

Simplicity 4118 - Another Threads dress! I wanted this one because it will make up in so many different summer fabrics for my work environment. I have quite a few ideas for this one!

Simplicity 4503 - this is an oldie but goodie. It has been in the pattern book for a minute but I just got around to purchasing it. I have some rayon/polyester knit that I got in San Francisco last year that is screaming to be made into this twin set.

Oh and the new Canon Powershot is home. I just need to get home at a decent hour to load the software onto the computer! The new camera doesn't work with the old software - but of course, so hopefully I will get that done this weekend!

I also bought a few buttons from Fabric Mart - that will go fabulously with the blue/white tweedy knit suit that is also on my sewing list for next week. However, no word yet from Sears. I might be making my way to the SM store to find another model. But I am not worrying about that yet because it will soon be Thursday. And it was announced today that we are closing at 3:00 pm on Friday! I will be released sooner than I expected!!!! Yes!

I am sooooo looking forward to sleeping late and sewing as much as I want!!!

And as a total aside - Yeah Jordan! The new American Idol!!!!!


  1. Love those pattern choices! Sorry to hear about the Sewing Machine - but sounds like you are in much better spirts about it.

    (As an aside - even though Blake lives on my street (for real) Yeah Jordan!!!) g

  2. I like that you sew for work as much as I do. I also like everything you chose. I'm also trying to sort out how I missed the first Threads / Simplicity dress. That's what I get for taking a sewing break.

  3. Ooooooh! Simplicity 4503! Now THAT'S just my speed! Thanks for the heads up, Carolyn! I'm on it! ;-)

  4. That T-Shirt pattern is so great, I think everybody should make them in every color. Just remember they run very short! I can't believe how popular that S3744 is so popular. I just happened to have been in Hancock's flipping through the book and saw it and had to have it. I grabbed it then and I'm glad I did.

  5. I am hoping my local Joann's has the Threads dress! I love it!

  6. Sounds like a lot of yummy things coming out of your sewing room next week. Keep us posted!

  7. love the pattern choices. Can't wait to see what they become

  8. I love all the patterns you picked out.Can't wait to see the finished project.

  9. OK Carolyn, I think that you are going to be the instigator for a blog sew-along! I have 3744 too and I just ordered the fabric for it. I'll talk about it tomorrow on my blog along with a photo of the fabric I bought for this dress. I searched everywhere, but I don't see a photo of the fabric you are using ;) (Hint, Hint). Can't wait to see your creations becaus I know they will be just devine!

  10. I had no idea that 3744 was such a hard-to-find item! I will check around today to see if I can score one. Your other choices look very familiar to me; may I say you have great taste? :D


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated!
