I keep a running list of pattern pins on my ‘Sewing Clothes’ pinterest board. Often when there is a $1.88 sale and I will go thru and see if there is anything pinned on my wishlist. I do have a long wishlist, and plenty patterns waiting in the wings to keep me busy. Here is the current $100 list which doesn’t fall into the McCalls 2 dollar sale.
- Cake patterns – Tiramisu
- Sewaholic – Tofino Pants, Cordova Jacket, Renfrew Top, Cambie Dress, Alma Blouse
- Victory Patterns – May have to have a couple of these too!
- My list keeps getting longer. Easy, knit – Lady Skater Dress
I downloaded the Collette Sorbetto tank top. It was my weeknd project. http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top
What inspired me was another bloggers post about 7 days of the Sorbetta. She added sleeves which was a big deal for me, plus I loved her 20s dress version too. Surprising how many ways a simply (2 pattern peices) can turn out – with a little imagination.
The fabric I chose for the top was a sheet set I had when I was a kid…so that unfortunately makes it 35 years old. The fabric has a wonderful worn feel, but the design was something I remember from being a kid in kindergarten. My favorite design I sparingly used for the bias collar, hem, and small strip down the front. Just could cut large chunks out of yet!
I still have to sew the buttons on…they are just pinned. Was waffling on which to pick, but the I will stick to these white ones I got at the estate sale last week.
