i’ve lost my sewing mojo. i can’t bring myself to bother – partially because i prefer to sew in my underwear (makes fitting easier), and my sewing room is freeeeezing. and our gas bill was over $300 this month! double bummer!
anyway, i’m already dreaming of my spring wardrobe – nice, because i’ve barely made a dent in my winter wardrobe EL OH EFFING EL – so wasn’t it nice of vouge & simplicity & mccalls (but not butterick, shame on you!) to release their spring 2011 lines?
at least they don’t suck as bad at the winter patterns did. i mean, honestly now.
vogue 1219, donna karen
i looove this one. i probably wouldn’t make it because it looks a touch unflattering (although that may just be the piece/model – looks kind of big on her) & holy hell lots of fabric! but i love it. it would be especially pretty in a nice seersucker.
simplicity had one good pattern to offer:
i hate project runway patterns… they are poorly drafted and always call for way too much fabric, but this one is cute. i couldn’t snag a good picture, have a line drawing:
love that criss-cross bodice!
and now for the (small)chapter of wtf…
mccall’s. WHAT THE HELL. you know what this reminds me of? felicity’s birthday dress. except worse, somehow.
so i’ll make my own!!
