October Pattern Showcase!!

Oops, September was last month! :D
One pattern. Seriously?


Yeah. I didn't find many patterns that I was interested in. 
I did however decide to get some fabric!!
I bought some wool for a hat that I plan to dye. More on that later, tee hee.

I also decided to get some fabric online


I got this great brown cotton that I'll make a dress with.


I've wanted some cotton velvet for a long time so I could make a floor length coat. This navy cotton velvet will be awesome.


This bright sassy rayon will make a fantastic dress.

So that's what I bought. 
For the weekend, I'm going to clean and make some pants. My old pants are quite big, so it's time to make some new ones and take the pattern in.


So that's my start. Have a great weekend!

  1. If that pattern was the only one you found, at least it's a great one! I think that's beautiful. I'm digging the rayon & brown cotton, too.

  2. I'd be careful with dyeing wool... it's a completely different from dyeing cotton....

  3. I've dyed wool before. And I have learned from my mistakes :D
