The Pledge

Somehow I dont know how, but I found a blog from a blog, like you do, and I signed myself up for the 2013 sewlutions,    Just a click of the button and Im now committed, and probably regretting it already.

 I commented that I would finish the coat that has been in my wardrobe for the last 3 years.  

Total madness most of the hard work has been done. Just need to take in some seams and hem it

I also said I would make up the patterns that I bought last year, I thought I had 5, but in fact I have 6.
1 Suit V8355 
4 dresses
1 Blouse V7903

Im not sure about one of the dresses the second from the left,  Vogue 1190,  with the  frills, probably not the best choice  with a full bust, I may omit the frills.  I like all the others, and I like to use every pattern once at least. 

Do you all use your purchased patterns, or do they get put to the back of the pile. Id love to know

  1. Those patterns look great - looking forward to seeing them made up. I buy so many patterns - I think I purchased almost a hundred last year - that there is no possible way I can sew them all up - and yet I buy more - Vogue/Butterick/McCalls american site are currently having a sale - what could I do - I HAD to buy.

  2. It is addictive pattern buying, I noticed vogue were having a sale, they are cheap. I might check on the shipping costs.

  4. Can't wait to see you make those patterns. Love that coat too, you have a real talent for making clothes. I love to buy patterns, but they never turn out the way I expect them too.
