Here's what I picked up:
First up, this looked like a great everyday summer top pattern with lots of variations. It's McCall's 2818, a Palmer/Pletsch.
This is Vogue 8182. I liked it as a summer church dress and for those all too seldom date nights!
Vogue 1091--Yes, for knits! It looked cool and comfy for hot summer days. I used to wear dresses a lot more than I do now. I think it's time to enjoy them again. And it's a knit! Here's what I got to sew it up, a rayon/lycra in a deep teal (the pic looks more turquoise to me):
They really don't have much for knits there and the quality is poor--I noticed this one had holes in it before it was cut. I just hope there aren't more that I had not noticed! I definitely need to explore other fabric shopping options.
Finally, an insane moment. The kids' piano recital this year features Disney music. The teacher suggested it might be fun for the students to dress like a character in their song. Well, it seemed like a great idea at the time and now reality is looking me in the face. We'll see if I can pull off a blue Giselle dress from the movie 'Enchanted'. Roger from '101 Dalmatians' will be MUCH easier!
Now, off to hem that lavender t-shirt!
