[I had to pick up a zipper for le prom dress! It's gorgeous!!!!!!!! Today I'll get the zipper in and do a final fitting -- side seams are still open -- and then get 'er finished. Prom is next Saturday (May 7), so stay tuned that second week of May for photos!]
Anyway, I stopped in the Hancock by my job a couple times last week and grabbed a small stack of patterns:
$.75 each (except the McCall's - oops. It was supposed to be $1.50)
Then I was minding my own business (haha!) and was sent a free shipping code for Fabric Mart (premium members) and grabbed 2.5 yards each of these:
Both were on sale and I've been wanting to try out a bamboo jersey...and I've had my eye on that lawn for awhile.
Then while I was in JoAnn (blergh), McCall's were on sale for $1.50 and I picked up these:
7387, 7391, 7388, 7386
And then (!) I had all but forgotten about the out of print sale at BMV, mainly because it is usually a struggle to browse and check out when they have these sales. I had no issues last night and bought 6 Vogues:
9001, 1359, 1282
1218, 1250, 1338
25 new patterns for someone who has managed 1 garment this month! Ha!!! I may find some time to sew in May. Maybe. Perhaps. I hope!!!
Prom dress will be finished this week.
The big jazz concert is this weekend.
Prom and Mother's Day is next weekend.
PR Weekend and my DDs band banquet the following weekend.
Two "free" weekends including Memorial Day (totally relaxing that day!). But not really free because I'll be hosting a graduation party coming up!
Then graduation and open house.
So yeah... I'm exhausted just thinking about it all.
P.S. The new Simplicity / New Look catalog was released. Total snooze fest for me. There's one pattern from each brand that I want:
