It's Official!

Spring is officially here when all the spring pattern books are out! Yeah, yeah there is all that chatter about March 20 falling on the spring equinox but seriously, this is a sewing blog. Sew, this happy event means spring is officially here!

This morning I called my local fabric store and heard the words I've been waiting to hear for sew long.

"Yes, the Spring Butterick book is out," the cheerful and professional voice reported.

Okay, I've only been waiting a couple of weeks when kAtheRine Tilton announced that her patterns are now available through Butterick. But it felt like a long time.

I've been waiting to get my hands on Butterick 5891. I have a pile of donated blue jeans that might be up-cyled into a funky jean jacket using this pattern. But first, I need to hit the road.

Happy Sewing!
