Well, as you know, I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday to check out the Simplicity pattern sale going on this week (see here). I was so elated to be out of the house without kids in tow, that I ended up spending about an hour and a half in the store just perusing patterns and what not. Imagine my surprise when I ended up only buying 2 patterns!! Yes, 2 patterns. And they weren't even anything from the Early Spring Collection (which is now on Simplicity's website, if you are interested). As you can tell, I am very picky, even if a pattern is only
On a positive note, I did find another skirt pattern to round out the choices for my skirt sewing...
So that's how everything looks so far. Actually, now that I am looking at all three of them together, it looks a little overwhelming, but I know that they should not be as time-consuming as some of the other things I have sewn.
My other purchase is one for a later date, but one I have been anticipating for a LONG time, ever since I have seen all of the success from other PRs. It is Simplicity 2700:
Yes, the Amazing Fit bootcut pants are now in my possession. I figure this pattern will be good to have around when attempting my first pair of pants. And I know bootcut pants are much more figure-flattering for pear-shaped women such as myself. I took a peek at the instructions and everything is laid out so well, with such great information, I can tell I will probably like it. If anything, I hope to get a great pair of pants from this pattern.
Well, that's all. Just a quick update on how things went yesterday. I'm still plugging away at my skirt, and hope to have something to show you soon. I hope everyone else's sewing projects are getting done now that things have slowed down a little after the holidays (for me at least, they may have picked up for some of you).
