(It's supposed to be like Taylor Swifts dress in Love Story)I was a lot of work, but I was really fun! Since then I have been wanting to sew some more of my outfits, and release some of my inner designer. However patterns can be expensive. If you buy new patterns they can be about $18. The pattern I bough for my costume was from etsy.com and was about $7. This is a fairly reasonable price, but when looking on etsy for a new pattern to sew I had a hard time finding one I liked, in my size....
This weekend I went to an antiques fair, and was simply over joyed to find a box full of patterns labeled "$1 each". I went through the whole box and found 9 patterns I liked that were my size! Here are some of them:
This is my favorite pattern that I found (it's from 1995). I like it because it's so versatile, but this is my favorite of the options:
Any color suggestions?
Ropers are still a big thing for summer this year, but I have never been able to find one that fits me just right, or was in the right color. The good thing about this pattern is that I can make sizing adjustments, and I get to chose the print! I'm thinking of making it a nice peach color...
These shorts are simple, but there's something I just love about them!
I really LOVE this dress! As a matter of fact it looks sort of like my junior prom dress:
hehe (: Are there proms in other countries besides the USA?
For this pattern I would definitely want to shorten it, but I has potential.
I also really loved the versatility of this pattern. I really like the image second from the left.
This also has potential, a little Gossip Girly eh?
This is one of the more complex patterns (buttons are hard...) but I have until next winter to get to this level (:
So have you ever sewn an outfit? Do you think people should sew themselves more often? What do you think of these patterns?
I'll be sure to keep you updated on my progress with my sewing (:
