A while ago I was the lucky recipient of the Wellington Pattern pyramid! I gave a little squeal when Taracat let me know I won, since I love the idea! It's basically a package of patterns that has been travelling between sewists. Everyone who gets it takes a pattern, adds one or two and maybe some nice things and picks a next person to receive it. Imagine my excitement when I went to the post office to pick up this:
Aah! So exciting! Getting mail is always awesome, but for some reason this was even more fun. I opened the package to find this loveliness:
Loads o' patterns and a gorgeous card! I'm not exaggerating here, there are quite a few patterns in this bundle...
I also got candy and nice things. But I'm keeping those. Now came the task of choosing a pattern to keep from the pile. I had a hard time choosing between these two:
They are both lovely dresses and quite like my own style, but in the end I chose... (drumroll)
Tadaah! This might be a predictable choice but I love quite a few of the variations and I have a Frida Kahlo-printed cotton lying around that's just dying to be made into this dress (no joke)
Here are the patterns I added to the loot:
A vintage Burda jumpsuit pattern (I already own a very similar one I should try first) and a vintage Vogue! I hope someone else will be happy to receive these!
IF YOU WANT TO GET NICE THINGS IN THE MAIL, KEEP READING!
If you want to be the next recipient, just leave a comment on this post and a way for me to reach you. I'll pick a winner next Tuesday and get in touch to deliver the goods!
Awesome package. hmmm, candy :-). I love the pattern you picked, especially when it will feature Frida's eyebrows.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Frida!! I can't wait to see that! Throw my name into the hat for the internationally travelling pattern package, I think it's a lovely idea!BeantwoordenVerwijderen
Woohoo!!! Congratulations on all the lovelies to choose from. And the bonus extras! I love that vintage Vogue you've added.BeantwoordenVerwijderen

Yay, you got it! Love that vintage Vogue you've added, and the jumpsuit. Don't put me in again though, I think that would be cheating.BeantwoordenVerwijderen
