Pattern stash challenge - one pattern complete
The plan for September and October is to see how many unopened patterns I can open and make an item in eight weeks. Why? Patternreview.com is running a pattern stash competition and I've got a few/many unopened patterns that I'd just love to make up. http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/contestreport.pl?ContestID=75
My rose coloured glasses list is:
McCalls 5007 - short boxy jacket with princess line (that I might need to add more fitting depending on the fabric)
McCalls 4783 - half circle skirt with yoke, now completed in black voile with redish flower print
McCalls 5408 - loose fitting pullover top
Vogue 8480 - unlined jacket (that I might be tempted to line)
Vogue 8426 - yoke skirt with interesting pleats etc
Vogue 8420 - loose knit tunic top.
I'm a bit wary of loose fitting garments because I can't successfully wear loose clothing that's designed for an average sized person and not look like a grey-haired school child.
