In the past couple of weeks, I’ve somehow managed to acquire a lot of fabric. First there was a trip home to Canada, then I attended the annual conference for the American Sewing Guild, and finally, I was tempted by Fabric Mart Fabrics.
Rather than write a zillion words about my acquisitions and plans, I took the easy route and created a video. I don’t think I’ll be posting a lot of videos, but they are fun and helpful for certain subjects. It’s certainly easier to describe fabric by holding it up, and I found the whole recording process to be helpful in organizing my thoughts about what I plan to sew next, and which fabrics can be set aside for autumn.
I’ve got a giveaway this time around! In my goodie bag at the ASG conference, there was a pattern. It’s too small for me, so I’m giving it away. This pattern is out of print (OOP) but was reviewed 6 times in Pattern Review, and was featured in Threads Magazine. Looks like a basic button-down with yolk and small gathers on front and back.
The pattern is a US size 6-14, or UK 32-40. It has cup sizing!
If you’d like this pattern, please comment here or on YouTube (via my video). If more than one person wants the pattern I’ll do a draw on July 28.
