A new pattern!

Yes another one! The Pattern Emporium Girls Skirt. It is a little embarrassing to admit that I still haven't sewn any out of my pattern box since my post on being a patterns hoarder but last night I purchased a new pattern. I couldn’t help myself! Hmm….addictive personality perhaps? Oh well there are worse things to be addicted to!


I think this pattern will be great year round! My girls would much prefer to wear skirts and dresses to pants and I love that the front waistband is flat but the back is still elastic making it super comfy! There are heaps of different options to choose from too. You can choose from 3 different lengths, 3 different amounts of gathering/fullness in the skirt, frill or not and 2 different pocket options…well 4 really as they can be finished different ways.

Not sure on fabric yet…maybe one of these? I think I will do the tea length with pockets and light gathers first…can’t wait!


If you want a copy too pop over here and get one!

Pattern Hoarder?

While cleaning and packing up my sewing room I discovered that I have a few sewing patterns…quite a few! This wouldn't be so bad except when I divide them into patterns I have sewn and those I have not the piles are rather uneven. This does not include all the digital patterns I have purchased!



Most of these I would still love to sew so they will be staying in my pattern stash.

As a little challenge to myself I would like to use one of these patterns every month. That is one that I haven’t used before! I might even try and use ME patterns!


One of these will be first up…now for the best bit! Fabric shopping!
