How did I ever manage to live without one of these? I promptly ordered one from Nancy's Notions along with a pressing ham for those princess seams.
I'd long wanted a ham and Joann's just never has them in stock. They arrived just in time for use and they're wonderful. All I need now is a ham stand to hold the ham for me.
On to the new patterns... A couple of weeks ago, Joann's had their Simplicity and Burda on sale so I grabbed a couple for the collection. I say collection because I have no immediate plans for any of these:
I got Simplicity 1316 for a top or two this summer, love those princess seams and cut on sleeves; Burda 6502, view A with a border print challis or eyelet would be great; and Simplicity 8259, it's just such a dreamy dress but who knows when I'll make it--just had to have it though.
That's all my news for now. I'm back to the coat and attaching the hood; the end is in sight.
Happy sewing all!
