My gifts to myself

I was lucky enough to actually get something sewing related for Xmas this year, a gift certificate to a local fabric store, but I decided to treat myself anyway and over the last two months have bought a number of patterns at sales and bought some fabric to use too. Since today is Boxing Day and many people have shopping on their minds, I thought I'd share my loot with you instead of hitting the stores myself.

PATTERNS: (see captions below)

Okay I was having a meltdown trying to get pics and captions to align, so the captions are here, from top to bottom with links taking you to the company website for details:

Butterick 4613, out of print, I've wanted this one for a while, will be making up View A in the navy wool crepe (see below)
Butterick 5558, a Maggy London dress with interesting waist pleats
Butterick 5562, cute knit tops
Butterick 5570, wardrobe pattern
Simplicity 2508, Project Runway Coat pattern
Simplicity 2692, dress pattern
Simplicity 3827, dresses, tops and skirts
Vogue 1205, Kay Unger Dress
Vogue 1206, another Kay Unger dress
Vogue 1209, Rachel Comey dress
Vogue 1211, Guy Laroche jacket
Vogue 8692, Claire Shaeffer Custom Couture jacket, my next project in the navy wool crepe below.

I also bought the Palmer/Pletsch Pants for Real People DVD:

I also made an order from Denver Fabrics:

A navy Blue 100% wool crepe for the skirt and jacket mentioned above. Also two cotton shirtings, one blue/green check (bad image quality, not the fabric) and another in pink/blue grey. I've found a few Burda magazine blouses for the shirtings to go with the navy suit. I haven't received the fabric yet, but it gives me time to finish up the other projects first.


  1. Oh loads of lovely sewing things :-D

  2. I'm happy u had such a great Christmas love the new patterns
