My me made may outfits for the last few days

and my yoga pants were worn too.

I'm furiously working on a Colette Beignet skirt but man, that's a high maintenance pattern.  15 pieces.   It took me an entire day to trace, cut and sew the skirt.  At 10pm I'm like, ok still 12 buttonholes, handsew 12 buttons on, do 6 belt loops and hem the outer skirt.  Ah, well you know maybe this won't get done tonight.  A person's gotta sleep.

But this is what it looked like before I started:

Purple corduroy, hot pink lining.  Purple buttons with a high sheen.  It's gonna be a killer !

But the most exciting news of all is that my purchases from McCalls pattern sale in the US arrived today.   Purchased in the evening of 28 April they arrived (Sydney)  today 7th May.   That's not bad at all!!

Look at this pattern love :

Now if only I could get this lot happening before the end of May ...

  1. Hi H,
    Thanks for your text today - bad news that the skirt wasn't ready for you to wear today. Its a great pattern. Love your new patterns - hope there will be show and tell on Wednesday. I am hoping to have done some work on one of my UFO's over these few days off. Enjoy your weekend.
