Pattern stash challenge – one pattern complete

var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);
document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));

try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-7221807-1”);
pageTracker._trackPageview();
} catch(err) {}The plan for September and October is to see how many unopened patterns I can open and make an item in eight weeks. Why? Patternreview.com is running a pattern stash competition and I’ve got a few/many unopened patterns that I’d just love to make up. http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/contestreport.pl?ContestID=75

My rose coloured glasses list is:
McCalls 5007 – short boxy jacket with princess line (that I might need to add more fitting depending on the fabric)
McCalls 4783 – half circle skirt with yoke, now completed in black voile with redish flower print
McCalls 5408 – loose fitting pullover top
Vogue 8480 – unlined jacket (that I might be tempted to line)
Vogue 8426 – yoke skirt with interesting pleats etc
Vogue 8420 – loose knit tunic top.

I’m a bit wary of loose fitting garments because I can’t successfully wear loose clothing that’s designed for an average sized person and not look like a grey-haired school child.

  1. Hi Maria, some very nice patterns, I have also got Vogue 8426 and want to make it up as well. It will be interesting to see how much width some of the jackets/tops have as they look very loose. Can’t wait to see what you do with them with your individual touch 🙂
