Wow! I can't believe it's been a month since I've made any comments. I decided against the dress I was thinking about and just haven't moved on to another project. Work has been keeping me very busy. However, I have purchased a couple of new books. Here they are:
Two of the Sewing Bible books. I was disappointed with both of these books. I would recommend to anyone that these be books that you wait till they show up at the library. The slipcovers book was not what I was expecting at all and was a real disappoint. Given the picture on the front, I thought it was a book about slipcovers for furniture. Not so. There is one project in the book that is related to furniture. Other projects are tablecloths, pillow covers, etc. I think you get the idea. The clothing book might be good for a beginner but I doubt that anyone else would be very excited about it.
I decided tonight that I would look at new patterns. I know I haven't been sewing but I can dream. Here's what I found at Butterick:
Isn't this a lovely dress by Maggie London? I'm very tempted to purchase this pattern for the stash. I checked the other 3 big pattern companies and didn't find anything else as interesting.
