I was home with a sick kiddie today, he might be home again tomorrow by the look of him :(. I wanted to sew. Really, I did. I’ve been wanting to. But it just ain’t happening! So, I picked up a few indie patterns instead.
I’ve wanted this pattern for so long. But I convinced myself that I wanted, no, needed a super-duper for real bra pattern. Well, I haven’t cracked it open yet. And I probably won’t. Look for a giveaway on it at some point.
This one is so versatile. I think I’ll start with the actual body suit version as I have quite a few tops that need something cami-esque to wear underneath and I only have tank tops…this version from Ms. Ohh Lulu herself is what tipped me over the Buy Now edge.
Obviously, Jen from Grainline is a sweetheart and super talented to boot. So, of course I wanted this pattern!! I have Colette’s Negroni pattern, and totally plan to make myself a version, but the sweet ruffle on this one was too much to resist.
There are so many elegant versions of this pattern out there! And who wouldn’t want to see that sweet packaging in person! I’m really looking forward to making this skirt. Even though I’ve been having some body issues lately…I think I waver between embracing my pear shape and feeling self conscious about it. This past week was a self conscious one. I have definitely gained a bit of weight and there are a few things that don’t quite fit the same. I think a few new, well fitted items are needed to get me over the hump.
I still want that SIMPLE jacket. And I need to get to work on an anniversary present (8 years coming up!!) for my hubby. I think I need to put on Lebowski and just DO IT!
Have you done any pattern stash enhancing, lately? Gut punched your sewing mojo to kick-start it?
