Darn You, Bloggers!!!

I'm addicted to $0.99 sales for patterns.  I get so many ideas just from looking at the pictures and they're only a buck so why not?  I grabbed some Simplicity and Vogue patterns at the latest Hancock's and JoAnn's sales.  I figured I was all done with buying patterns until the summer, which is great because I have no more space for patterns.  And then you darn bloggers had to post your latest acquisitions!

I surrender to my pattern addiction.  Now I must go pick up some McCall's when they go on sale.

Here are my Simplicity and Vogue finds this past weekend.

V2973--trendy jacket by Montana, the pants I could do without


V1065--the lines on this jacket and skirt by Badgley Mischka caught my eyes months ago and I finally caved in.  Do you find yourself gravitating towards a particular designer's patterns?  I love Badgley Mischka, particularly the dresses.


V2532--just a basic shorts/pants pattern but the width of the leg is appealing to me...minimize my hips, please!


S2451--I've also been eyeing this for awhile


S2733--Not a fan of tops with pockets but I could see this as loungewear, and possibly a fun blouse, minus the pockets.


S2934--loungewear for me


V8479--the low horizontal seam on the rear may minimize large rears, what do you think?  Break it up instead of one massive tush?


S2452--I'm visualizing view A in some dark sateens or silk linens


S2455--I like the dress minus the belt


S2446--Amazing fit should be possible with the princess seams!



  1. Yeah I got some of those patterns also, based on blogger tip.. Happy sewing

  2. You've got yourself some really great patterns there. I've got Simplicity 2934 and have made it up a couple of times - I really like it.

  3. Holy Cow - just perusing through your selection of patters here, and went bonkers over that
    Simplicity 2452 pattern. Love the neckline on that thing. Course this is something that looks good on me - those high collars. I'm in the middle of a Chanel jacket, but got get that thing and do something fun with that front piece.

  4. ClaireOKC--share pics of your Chanel jacket when you're done, please! I love seeing everyone's take on the Chanel jacket.
