In my defence...

I have been looking for a dress pattern with an inverted pleat to do a version of Tilly's Birthday dress for quite a while. I have Navy fabric poised and ready in my stash...
The other 6?... Oh huh their ... backups.
The OOP McCalls Jacket took me ages to find at a decent price! But its sooo pretty and little jackets are what are missing in my wardrobe.
I did also buy an 80's new look pattern for a long sleeved dress but Ebay won't let me have the picture and I can't find it anywhere else.
Any fabric suggestions for any of these? The jacket I think in a plum or in the teal of the photo? Maybe even Tan!
I leave you with a video that always makes me giggle and just proves how obsessions can get out of hand... In a pattern buying scenario I am Carl.



  1. I love that dress too and can't wait to see your version! I ADORE that McCall jacket!!

  2. I love the first pattern in your stash...sooooo lovely!

  3. Ohhh, you have two patterns that I have in my stash too!

    This summer I worked on Mail Order 4875 (sleeveless with tucks at shoulder), but temporarily gave up, due to disastrous fitting. You can read all about it here:
    and here
    It should be really cute if (when!) I get it to fit.

    Last week I purchased the McCalls Jacket on eBay, because my wardrobe also lacks awesome little jackets.

    I love your taste!


I love reading what you have to say!
