A Departure from Sewing...And New Buttericks!

MY BRACES ARE COMING OFF!!!!!!

I got a permanent retainer bonded yesterday and go back in week to take impressions for my removable retainer. I scheduled my 'debanding' date!


December 18th!!!!



I have been waiting for the new Buttericks! I knew that there would be some good ones! Well, to me at least!

6127: I love this. It looks like a jacket but it isn't!

6130: I love the dress and jumpsuit

6142: I tend to like all of the Lifestyle wardrobe patterns. This jacket is so interesting!

6143: I would do pleats instead of gathers (and no trim!)

both from 6140: Such great details!

6132: Love.


6151: Husband's Choice. 

Both from 6134. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!!


There are some tunics and loose tops and a couple of Tilton patterns that I can pass on. Of course a couple of pj patterns and some kids patterns. And a tote bag pattern 


And my favorite; Which pattern was reused for See & Sew?

This time it's pretty good! 
*there are several but this one stood out because I knew I'd seen this and wanted it!

So if you were interested in the Vogue, you can save a couple of bucks and buy the Butterick! You don't get the raglan pattern but there are plenty of raglans in the sea :)

  1. Congrats!! I had braces 5 years. It was the pits. The best feeling is when you get them off. Man your teeth feel smooth and look great ;-)

  2. Haha I think we actually liked all the same patterns. Everything on your list is on mine.

    2. Thank you!!

      HA! I think we tend to like the same stuff from Big4 and Burda!

  3. I like 6127, 6142 and 6140 and will probably purchase all three with the next Club BMV sale. However, that jumpsuit has a zipper in the back. I think that might be a challenge when nature calls - just saying!

    1. I definitely love those 3!

      I am quite flexible and always unzip myself - much to my husband's amazement! lol! I think that jumpsuit might win out for my outfit to his holiday party. Unless it goes horribly wrong. Fingers crossed that my Hancock has it this Sunday for the sale!

  4. I liked pretty much all of the same patterns as you, especially that coat with cup sizes and the 6127 dress. With the way they've got that corset styled in some of the shots, the model looks like a crafty dominatrix.

  5. I never noticed you had braces! I just finished a run with Invisalign, which is much more pleasant than real braces, but I was still super excited to get my bumps removed and be able to speak normally again! Congratulations. Your husbands choice made me crack up.

  8. B6151 has a lot of Ralph Pink going on for my money. A pal wants me to make her one, and outside of the 'you have nothing to put in it' comments, it strikes me as the perfect winter sew. Lots of sitting inside and sewing line after line of stitching. Certainly more entertaining than more wool pants and liners.

    1. OMG, you're right! It's like Ralph Pink made from quilting cotton!

  9. You just make sure you keep those teeth well looked after when the 18th has passed :)

    I love all these patterns too - perhaps not husbands choice so much :) . Was that picture from Butterick - bit on the wild side for them.

    1. Oh yes Sarah Liz! I wore braces once already as an adult and it will NOT happen again as far as I can control it!!!

      That WAS from Butterick and is a Waverly pattern to boot!

  10. Interestingly, from the back of the 12/2014 magazine preview of next month's Burda, it looks like there is a top quite similar to 6134 in the 01/2015 edition. I guess everyone is knocking off the same designer look.

    I love a LOT of these Buttericks, but luckily the ones I want the most are both el cheapo See and Sew! :D

    1. Not surprising re: similar patterns coming out. I am now a Burda subscriber so we will see!!!

  11. That first graphic is hilarious!! Congrats on the braces. My favorite is B6134, too.

  12. I didn't even notice you wore braces! But, yay! I'm glad they are coming off too! My sister had braces for five years, and she was ecstatic when they came off too!

  13. Butterick was bringing it this holiday collection. There's is the best by far!

  14. I didn't even notice you had braces! I just got mine removed a couple weeks ago, it feels fantaaaaastic.

    Is it just me, or does the husband's choice corset have a fanny pack???

  15. Congrats on the brace removal. I use to wear braces in my 20's so I know how happy you feel about getting them off.

  16. I love that 6134 top, too. I think it would probably be very slimming.

    And that jumpsuit, oh! I liked it when I saw it, but didn't think it was for me until I read your comment that it might work for your hubby's holiday party. I have a wedding to attend this summer - a coworker - and I've bought a couple of dress patterns as possibilities, but I prefer wearing pants. I was wondering if I could find a pattern for wide pallazzo style pants. Now you've got me thinking this jumpsuit would work really well for the wedding. I think it would look pretty in a watercolor-y silk. My only concern is that band across the midriff because I look better when there is no emphasis on my waistline, and more emphasis at the shoulders or neckline. However, thankfully, that midriff band is flat and it looks like the pants are not gathered coming out of it, so it would be sleek and not make me look preggers.

    Thanks for the idea! I might get it, though I might try to figure out how to make the collar deeper and more stand-up-ish for a bit of drama.

    I love how your excitement about sewing and trying new things comes through in your posts.
