It's official...i am a Sewaholic Patternaholic. A week or so ago came the exciting news is that Tasia, who designed the pattern for the wonderful Crescent Skirt, has a new pattern out...and it's a dress!
I immediately thought that this would be a perfect pattern for my Holiday Wardrobe Challenge and so yesterday i pre-ordered the pattern. Woop! I am really hoping the style will suit me - Tasia's patterns are designed with pair shapes in mind, and i think i am more curvy than pear. However, i was unsure about the crescent skirt initially and i love it, so i figured i should take a chance as it looks like such a fun pattern. I especially like the pockets and the mock halterneck style (there are straps down the back) and i reckon with a good strapless bra all will be well! While i was at it i took advantage of the free shipping offer Tasia kindly has going to complete my trio of Sewaholic patterns by ordering the Pendrell Blouse too. This has been seen in many versions around the blogosphere, for example this lovely version by Jane. I can't wait to get my hands on both these patterns and get sewing!
Thanks for your helpful comments about pre-washing fabrics in response to my last post, especially to Ashley for the genius tip to use colour catchers to prevent colour run. I pre-washed all my new fabrics over the weekend so they are all ready to go. I have a busy week coming up but am already looking forward to some serious sewing time at the weekend.
Knitted Square Count: 8 and a half! After Marie's query about how my mum is doing with her side of the knitting, i thought i would mention that she is currently at 50+....i like to think that i am catching up....slowly!!
Happy sewing everyone, i hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Oh and for anyone who is interested....Glee was AWESOME!
