Gearing Up for Fall Sewing

Three day weekends are the best! Pattern sales at JoAnn's and Hancock's make it even better. No ranting and raving about too many patterns in my collection. I'm just going with the flow of "this is what I love to do". I collect patterns; I collect fabric; and I sew. First, Miss DD liked two dress patterns that I picked. Wow! What a moment. I'm getting misty. lol She also allowed me to pay for some fabric that she selected. She hasn't completely decided on the fabric yet but is thinking one will be in a pin wale corduroy.

I also picked up this "great pant" pattern. It's makes a lot of promises on the envelope. These pants would be a compliment to all kinds of tops and blouses worn inside or out. Definitely a wardrobe builder. If it makes good it's promises, It may become a TNT pattern for me. We'll see.

I also grabbed these:

Last but not least, I picked up the patterns shown in the previous post.

Happy Sewing!


  1. You're so lucky! To have both a Hancock's and JoAnn's to visit for the pattern sales. DD#2 plays travel softball and her new practice field is just down the street from Hancock's. Well...it "used" to be Hancock's. Can you believe it closed last year? What rotten luck. And we were so busy with back-to-school shopping that I never got in to JoAnn's. Oh well, Columbus day sales should be coming up and maybe I'll catch a sale then.

  2. Fabulous picks! I am coveting that vest pattern for some time!

  3. I'll be really interested to see how that vest works up. I'm not much of a vest person (evokes too many memories of really bad art to wear), but that one looks intriguing.

  4. I have high hopes for that pants pattern as well!!
