The pattern, Vogue 8975, has been in my pattern stash for almost a year now. The pattern is for a dress and jacket. If I had enough of the animal print knit I would have made the dress but I bought the rest of the bolt which isn't enough for the dress. Although, it is the perfect amount for the jacket (1.6 metres). Or it could work as the contrasting fabric if I do make view B of the dress without the jacket.
What do you think?
- The dress in the solid grey colour with the animal print jacket or
- Just the dress mixed with both fabrics
It is on the cutting table waiting for a final decision, hopefully by the weekend.
Yesterday, Vogue patterns gave us a teaser of their upcoming patterns with a promise that they will soon appear. I'm still waiting. No sign of them yet and spring is only seventy-two days away (according to the radio announcer this afternoon). I have my hands on the Vogue Pattern magazine but the patterns that I'm most tempted by were not featured in their sneak peek. And there is a colour blocked knit dress pattern featured that would work nicely with the above fabrics as well.
It is not the harsh blowing snow outside that makes one feel like spring will never get here rather the waiting for the new spring patterns. I jest, as I try to patiently wait.
In the meantime, I've been finding time to read which has been cutting into my sewing time. I just finished reading "I Am Malala" a memoir on the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for another read to add to your own list.
Well, that is all in sewing news today...
