After work today, I jumped on down to Joann Fabric for their 3.99 pattern sale (Vogue patterns only) going on. I needed 2 yards of muslin since I am taking a very promising Introduction to Pattern-Making class on Saturday morning in that hipster enclave of Los Angeles, Silver Lake (where I do buy quite a bit of Japanese fabric).
Here is my bounty:
I didn't mean to purchase this - I ran across this while browsing for missing patterns in the drawers (as usual!) - I found this by mistake - I love sheath dresses - and loved the jacket on this one. . .
A Claire Shaeffer pattern that I love! Since I saw Erika B make a wonderful Claire Shaeffer jacket - I couldn't wait to pick this up - I want to eventually put my newly acquired couture skills to work!
A very easy vogue pattern that I saw favorable reviewed on PR - can't wait to sew this up - plus it favors my aesthetic of perhaps vintage, yet modern. .
I loved the sleeves and neckline on this dress - it looks pretty easy and I've seen positive reviews on PR and my bloglist - Jonathan loves the fabric shown on the model but I certainly cannot see myself in this print!
I like the version on the right, in yellow! I can make this quickly - and I already love a few RTW cashmere sweaters I own in this design! I really wanted a couple of different knit patterns to be honest but they were out of stock!
In a related note: Have you seen the option on McCall's webpage for "Printable Patterns." Has anyone tried this option and if so, what was the result?
I can't wait for tomorrow's class!
