Practicing self-restraint on a sales weekend…

A sales weekend – Memorial Day. I absolutely promised myself I would not go overboard on fabric.

I’m limiting myself to patterns 🙂

Casual Elegance (Loes Hinse Studio, love her designs – classic, elegant, chic) has patterns at 50% off! Had to get this sweater coat pattern that I’ve wanted for so long.

Dixie DIY – I blame thank Faye at Faye’s Sewing Adventure for this! She has a post on Indie patterns – the annual Indie Pattern Month Challenge, sponsored by Monthly Stitch, is in June. Dixie’s Ballet Dress got me. For knits, what a nice relaxed design! Perfect for a cotton blend jersey. Or as shown, a sweater knit top and solid knit bottom. Take off the sleeves, make them elbow length, add a wide belt. Fun!

Nikki at Fancy That posted an adorable version of New Look 6210 Knit Dress (short and maxi versions and a choice of slim or relaxed skirt and two necklines). I’m going for the relaxed skirt looks…great for summer.

And thinking of View D in red, inspired by the Sundance Cafe Rouge Dress!

Take me back to the 80’s…remember the boyfriend coat? OK, if you’re laughing due to how looong ago that was, I forgive you. Ashley and I both want the Republique du Chiffon Gerard Coat this fall. I got the pattern now, don’t want to forget where I found it!

It’s only Sunday. Not even noon. Self-restraint is probably a virtue…but total withdrawal just can’t be good.

Ciao! Coco

  1. oh, these are such good picks! I am limiting my purchases to notions and the occasional pattern. After seeing these, I may need more than the occasional pattern. Happy sewing Coco

  2. Lovely patterns – I find them irresistible (I have close to 600 in my collection!). To me they contain the promise of hours of planning, happy sewing and wearing. The potential is exciting!!
