saturday agenda:

Here's the agenda for today, class:
  1. Post on the Literary Girls.
  2. Finish anthro top.
  3. Alter this pattern and *CROSSES FINGERS* cut out (Vogue 8701):

I'll be making the pretending-to-be-a-vintage-pattern-dress:

using this amazing fall plaid:

Note the tiny bit of green in the plaid in this close up...

Ok, so I did say a "tiny" bit of green.

Gotta finish that anthro top first. And somewhere I need to squeeze in time to cut out that blue skirt to match! Yikes. I need a vacation so I can work on all these projects!

FO's tomorrow! (still CROSSING FINGERS)


  1. I have that Vogue pattern and love it. I look forward to your version! Happy Sewing :)

  2. I have faith that we will see some finished garments tomorrow for sure! Dontcha need something new to wear to school next week!

  3. I love your list. Hope you are now working on item #2. My list looks like this: ASG meeting (done), trip to goodwill to drop donations, mall, and fabric store, then sewing.

    Yea - I'm sitting in the living room with a 'puter in my lap, instead of loading the truck with give away stuff. ARG. g

  4. That dress is gorgeous, what a great pattern. I can't wait to see your dress, I am sure it will be lovely (even though I really can't see the green in the pictures ;-))

  5. How cute!!! Is that an OOP pattern?
    I don't remember seeing that one in the books. I want it!

  6. I really love that Vogue pattern the more I see it! I look forward to seeing your dress made up!

  7. The first time I saw that vogue pattern I passed it over, but I think that it was the color of the plaid! But the more I look at it (and now that I have taken the time to examine the line drawings) I am fairly positive that it will come home with me from the fabric store today.

    Good luck finishing your top! The dress looks great. I can't believe that you're going to match up those plaids. I'd love to see how you do it. I always need pointers on matching patterns.

  9. Angie, someone gifted me some antique slips and lace.
    the lady who gave them to me is in her nineties and she says they were her moms, are you interested? I don't want them and thought of you when she passed them to me. Let me know and if you want them I will stick them in the mail to you. Marie

  10. I was seriously drooling over that pattern when I was at the fabric store the other day...I had to keep telling myself that it just doesn't fit with my current work situation. (But I'm still tempted to get the pattern the next time it's on sale!

  11. What an amazing pattern - haven't seen it in Australia. I love the idea of a plaid dress. Look forward to seeing the finished item.

  12. Love your plan, I think it will look fabulous in that gorgeous plaid! Keep us posted!


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
