Life can be very inconsiderate at times. It has the amazingly bad manners to interfere with my sewing and blogging time. How rude! As such, I don't have too much to report.
I do have a bit of a teaser for a project that I'm working on:
Doctor Who and glitter. You can't ask for much more than that. I hope to be able to sneak in an hour or two of quality sewing time and will post finished pics as soon as I can.
In other news, I received these wonderful patterns in the mail courtesy of the recent sale at Butterick:
So excited to have Gertie's amazing pattern (Butterick B5882) in my grubby little hands! I love the sample dress and as much as I'd like to replicate it, there's no way I trust myself in white silk. I'd be devastated after the first wearing because inevitably I'd spill something on it, or sit in a dirty spot, or mess it up in one of a hundred other ways. I'm sure the right fabric will speak to me when the time comes.
The Vogue skirt looks like a nice basic piece with a few interesting details. I should get a lot of use out of this pattern.
The two bag patterns - well, I couldn't bring myself to purchase just one pattern for around $2 and have to spend $8 more on shipping. It seemed crazy unless I added in a few other patterns to make the purchase worthwhile. I have a lot of scraps of leather, vinyl and other utility fabric that would be perfect. I'd love to try out making a bag or two.
Well, back to trying to carve out sewing time!
