Whilst I was taking my class - I did have a chance to shop and here is my bounty - I can't wait to make these up:
Two Decades of Style patterns that I have been waiting to buy for awhile (apparently Decades of Style had a trunk show with all the designs sewn up that I missed two weeks ago (of course).
Decades of Style 1940s House Dress
Decades of Style 1940s New England Dress:
Also, I bought three yards of this cotton lawn, which does have some cross-stretch - it is NOT a liberty print - but does remind me of the type of prints Liberty is famous for. I was thinking of making Vogue 8667 in this print but after trying on my muslin - I think I will save it for another project.
I also got this thick canvas Japanese robot print to make a Green Pepper messenger bag for J. Unfortunately, he doesn't think the material is substantial enough for his books (it is - especially if reinforced) But, hey, I'm not going to argue - so yeah!! I can use this somehow for a project of mine!
Dear readers, if you have sewn Decades of Style patterns - I would love to hear about it! Tips are appreciated!
