… a special bulletin.
Yes, you know it already… In last week’s post, I asked you which vintage sewing pattern should be my first in the Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge 2015. The winner, with 64% of the vote is … McCall’s M7238!
One of my sister’s “old” patterns and apparently the one she sewed up for her civil wedding ceremony! A very special dress indeed, needs a very special fabric! And no, I am not running out to the fabric store now to buy fabric! (I do have to buy topstitching thread, but that’s it! I swear!) I have a couple of fabrics in my stash waiting for a special dress project. I’m not going to show you though, because, well, some things in life have to be a surprise, but I shall “cut” into my fabric this weekend, along with a couple of other fabrics that I have planned to sew in the coming months.
Do you like cutting out your fashion fabric as much as you like sewing it? Or are you like me… It is so difficult to find clear floor space and all that crawling around with your butt in the air is hard on the knees, even if you are on the pristine thick living room carpet. I read one blogger uses a pillow under her knees. I think I will try that this time as I have a few projects to cut out and I really want to get the “cutting out” over with all at once!
Happy Family Day long weekend to all those living in British Columbia, Canada! and Happy Sewing to everyone!
… We shall resume our regular programming now…
