New patterns!

So, I am almost ready to have a “ta-da!” moment on my Macaron dress. I have been squeezing in some sewing on night times and nap times and, barring a bit of invisible-zip-unpicking-action, I will have finished it this week. Huzzah!

I never let the fact I have a pile of UFOs stop me from moving on to buying more patterns though.  I am considering (probably, maybe, perhaps) sewing myself a dress to wear to my sister-in-law’s wedding. As soon as the idea popped into my head I gave myself permission to buy some Victory Patterns I had been lusting after for a while. The Ava dress seemed like a lovely little number for a wedding!:

There was an offer on in the Victory Patterns Etsy shop and I ended up buying three patterns. It was silly not to! So the lovely Chloe and Hazel patterns also found their way into my basket:

And…hello?! What are these that dropped through my door this week!:

I got both these patterns after seeing some fantastic inspiration on other blogs. Both Paunnet and Foursquarewalls made fantabulous Banksia dresses. And the darling ranges dress looks like it will be a comfy addition to my wardrobe. It’s got a tie at the back to make it more fitted/more loose dependant on your mood or how much you’ve had for lunch!

It’s not all been pattern shopping though, oh no. I have managed to sew a pair of pyjama pants for my sister who had her second baby this week. Just a shame that I missed out on Karen’s Pyjama Party by a few weeks.  I’ll take a snap of them and do a mini “ta-da” of them at some point, mainly as I am so very proud of myself for managing to use French seams all over the place.
