I succumbed and ordered some new patterns last week, predominately due to some wonderful reviews on PR or on individual blogs:-
Vogue - 6571; 1316
Butterick - 5780; 5779; 5705; 5710
McCalls - 6610; 6464; 6460; 6571
Some of these patterns are for inspiration and some are because I love them the way they are - so these have been added to my Bento system, numbered and ready to go into my pattern stash.
My 2nd package was my order of Prym snaps/poppers. I mentioned that my D Mike purchased the snaps for me, but it was a refill pack which was missing the two adaptors that hold the corresponding parts in place before squeezing the pliers together so I hope to get my McCalls 6116 dress to shirt conversion completed today.
Last but not least I brought home my package of bra making lycra, elastic's notions etc that Sigrid kindly picked up for me a few weeks ago. I did panic slightly when I saw the size of the package because I only had my rucksack/backpack because this was just an overnight visit. Necessity being the mother of invention, I sandwiched my laptop and ipad between lycra, stuffed the elastics in side pockets to make sure I could get it all home. I can't wait to sort through it all later.
My D Mike is off to help his youngest son move house today, so other than going to the shops and doing some exercise I have a day of sewing, finishing planned.
Wish me luck, and catch you later.....................
