Drum Roll Please!
Oh, I'm going to make you wait just a little longer! Let me tell you what I chose and what I am contributing. Firstly, these two patterns are staying home with me:
I absolutely love these two Vogue patterns - I don't even recall seeing them in the patterns books, but here they are! In fact, I swapped Vogue for Vogue! I love slouchy cardigans and V8659 really fits the bill. It has some princess seaming for some subtle shaping and easy, lazy dolman sleeves. It is a winner all round for me! At the other end of the scale, I need to make some more jackets, and V8623 looks just perfect. I find that the large collars really work at framing my face - I know that for some people it works and others it doesn't, fortunately it works for me!
I nearly chose the bias tops as well - such a great pattern, but I think that two patterns will suit me well.
I am contributing these two Vogue patterns:
They both are very cute - who doesn't want some frilly undies and the draped front tops are smart in a casual kind of way. I hope that they find a good home!
So, who gets to choose?
Congratulations to Laura of Sew Miss Oz - please send me an email with your details and I will get the pyramid mailed off to your this week. Please drop over to her blog to say hello and get involved in the next leg!
I have to say that I really enjoyed this whole process - it is true what they say, one man's junk is another man's treasure (although I feel really bad equating sewing patterns to junk, but you get my drift!)
