December Planning

Well, not much sewing is going on here because of the flu. But I can have some fun planning head, and I have a least three things lined up for December.

1) Simplicity 3786

I will make the short-sleeved version with the pintucks. (Shortened of course. The tunic length does no favors for me.) The fabric is a black stretch cotton from Fashion Fabric Club.

2) Hot Patterns Plan & Simple 24/7 pencil skirt

I got this nice blue corduroy also from Fashion Fabric Club. I'm not completely sold on the A-line from this pattern, but I love the pencil skirt.

Barbie Clothes:

I think my niece Rowan needs some vintage-style Barbie clothes for Christmas.

I need a dress for this New Years Eve, but I haven't settled on anything yet. I don't go too formal, but I like to have something nice. Hmmmm. I dunno.

I'll leave you with some goodies that came in the mail for me this week. I love getting new patterns.

Start the plan as soon as you feel better, I egar to see your new designs.

Get well soon! I love those Barbie patterns, I hope you get around to making something from them. (Although the pattern parts must be awfully small...)

Thank you, I'm eager to get the first pair made up too. I started pinning the pattern a few minutes prior to prewashing my fabric. I pinned and decided to prewash so then I had to remove all the pins. I really think that I am going to like this pattern a lot, so I'm tracing it out while the fabric is washing. I don't want to destroy the pattern.
