This month there was a HUGE spike in pricing.
I didn't think I'd be able to get any new acquisitions. But you know me. A month without some new patterns is like....a month without some new patterns.
I thought this pattern below was interesting.
Apparently this 'placket' was patented and the maker of this pattern was legally only allowed to make this dress six times using this placket. I wonder how they were going to enforce that. In any case this pattern is still in it's factory folds.
Perhaps the lady was too afraid to attempt it....
I love finding patterns with older women on the covers. They are hard to come by.
This pattern was my splurge of the month.
I really want to make this man's shirt. As a wedding present for some friends of mine, I told the wife I'd make her a two piece dress suit, and hubby a tailored dress shirt. The dress suit I can do in my sleep, but I'm very interested in the construction of men's clothing.
I love this blouse. It's the look those 80's does 40's blouses tried to mimic, but there is an authenticity about this one that can't be duplicated.
