New Patterns Have Taken Flight!

I am pretty flush with patterns. Most any style my heart's desire can be morphed from some pattern I already own. Does that stop me from purchasing "just a few more"??? No!!! First up, did you know that Butterick has their own version of the Pippa dress? Don't you think it looks like this?
I knew Style Arc had a version of the dress but I hadn't gotten around to buying any patterns from them yet, although I have seen some great garments that others have sewn from them around the blogosphere. Anywho, I was reading someone's blog who had a picture of the Butterick pattern, so when BMV sent a sale email I was all over it! I never really thought to look in Bridal (I know...DUH!!!). I love everything about this dress and have a lovely print in mind for my rendition. Since no pattern should travel alone, I also picked up Butterick's latest jean pattern and another dress I have been meaning to try. I have a couple of other projects in the works...waiting on zippers and notions...hopefully they will come today. Today is my Hunny's 53rd birthday and he left today for his hunting vacation. His Dad and good friend are both going, so they should enjoy some nice male bonding time. Me? I'm staying home to work and mind the chickens...and sew of course! I have an embroidery job to attend to before work, so I'd best get off the computer and get to it! Catch you all later

Truth be told, I liked Pippa's dress better than the wedding dress. That's a great pattern. I keep thinking about signing up for Club BVM so I get notices about sales and whatnot. Hubby wouldn't care, but I don't know how many patterns I need...isn't that the dumbest thing you ever heard?

No Marjie, it's not the dumbest thing I've ever heard! I resisted BMV for a long time because I thought I wouldn't buy enough to justify it since JoAnn's has killer sales on patterns all the time and I truly do have a ton of patterns (been sewing since the 70's!) But when you consider gas to go to the store, buying other things just because I'm there...I think it is turning out to be more economical. I did wait to join til they offered the membership for $9.99 though...that's just how I roll!
