How many patterns did I say I wanted to buy this year?
So, its almost the end of July and I'm proud to say I've only bought 6.
I was at 4 last week and then this happened...
Yeah, I caved, I had to get it because it was the only pattern that made me daydream of how fabulous it would look if I were to make it. Designer look written all over it.
And now I have immediate buyer's regret because I don't make jackets and I already know this one will be in the stash until I inevitably give it away.
Why can't I change?
But its cute right? I love it!
I haven't been to Joann's in a while, they had some really nice fabrics, look at this display...
The strapless dress is super cute. One stitch up the back, I'm so tempted to get a couple yards.
Does anyone know if the simplicity tag on the dress means its made from a simplicity pattern? Not sure.
I didn't talk about this before but I got a membership to Julie's Pick Club at Fabric Mart because I've never tried it before and I wanted to see what it was all about.
I haven't had time to go fabric shopping this year and honestly, I don't think I have the mojo for it.
I was looking at what I got last year and most of it is still in the stash, which is great becauseI still want to make the garments, I just don't want to add a whole lot more to it.
This coupled with the fact that I haven't really been seeing a lot of sewing patterns I want to make this year in the new collections.
All this to say, a little treat every month may be exactly what I need.
Look at this petal dot ITY, black and white, you know I love it!
I got a couple pieces to make tops, which is all I may be sewing for the next couple of months.
Sewing just doesn't happen during the summer, its so hard to stay inside when the weather is so gorgeous and there is so much to do.
If you have tried Julie Picks Club let me know, I am interested to hear your experience.
