In August, which only feels like last week, I picked up on a post at Sew 2 Pro . She had the same thoughts as myself - you buy a fabulous book; look at the pictures; read and try to decipher the instructions but never actually MAKE anything.
But Marianna's idea wasn't Burda or Gertie but Pattern Magic! Nothing like making life a little bit more difficult. I happen to have Pattern Magic 2 and have sat for many hours day dreaming about the fantastic creations I would make and, of course, never made anything. Then Marianna set a challenge -
Calling all adventurous, experimental and courageous sewists!
Drape over Doris to mark arm holes, fix the triangle points at centre back and determine the height of the centre front seam for the nightdress.
Wear and sleep like a baby...
Thanks Marianna. I would have loved to be able to do pleats and disappearing pockets - maybe next time!
Sew 2 Pro is doing a collage of all entrants this week - so head on over to see what else has been inspired by Pattern Magic books.
