Patterns, patterns, patterns

Joanns is having a Vogue pattern sale today through Sunday, but since I have to work 12 hours on Saturday and 10 hours on Sunday to support a test (bleh), today was pretty much my only day to get over there. There were some patterns I really wanted to get, so I stopped on my way to work this morning to increase my chances of getting them. Here were my picks:

I like the simple, retro look of V1043 . It could be real cute in a summery print.

V1048 seems to be a very popular choice among the sewing blogger community. I like it too.

V8489 is also a popular choice. I think this would look good on many figures and I think Vogue thought so too because it's one of their rare patterns that goes up to size 24.

I'd love to make creative t-shirts like Marcy Tilton. Maybe with V8497 I can.

V8499 is a bit of a risk. I dress somewhat conservatively but I think these pants could be a nice alternative to my usual jeans or sweatpants to create a casual, summer look. However, I don't think I'd wear them to work (nor would I wear sweatpants to work either!)

I like the simple lines of V8503 and I think v-necks are most flattering on me.

I don't need a handbag right now but I like the shapes of the bags in V8506.


  1. I just picked up V8506 the other day. I like that Vneck as well. I didn't notice that one before.

  2. I also like V8489! LOL

  3. If I'm not careful, I might get back into sewing. Then were would I be??? *must*look*away*

  4. I like the pants! Those would be perfect here...

    Nice, nice, nice!!!
