It's not that I am ungrateful or anything (ok, sometimes I am) but I am working on appreciating what I have. In the midst of doing that, I discovered a great magazine that I would like to try out. It's called My Image magazine. It is similar to Ottobre, in that it is a sewing magazine with multiple "looks," and you get the patterns/instructions for all the looks in the magazine! The nice thing about this magazine is that the price is very reasonable.
You can check out Sew Baby if you are interested in ordering, or click here to browse the magazine. Oh yeah, there is a kids version as well!
I noticed that Mccalls just released their spring patterns and there were a couple that looked interesting:
The rest of the collection is here if you are interested.
Skirt update: Sadly, I am going to have to finish my skirt next week. My sister is getting married and I will be tied up starting this Friday until Monday. I am still waiting for my zipper roller foot to come in the mail (hopefully today) so I can insert my invisible zipper, and then I just need to attach the lining and hem the skirt. It does look nice so far, and I am excited to show you all when I am finished!
I definitely appreciate all that I am learning in constructing this skirt, and I look forward to creating more pieces.
Stay sew-filled! And I'll be back soon (with pictures)!
