Pattern Pyramid Baby!

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 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!

  1. Awesome package. hmmm, candy :-). I love the pattern you picked, especially when it will feature Frida's eyebrows.

  2. 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!

  3. Woohoo!!! Congratulations on all the lovelies to choose from. And the bonus extras! I love that vintage Vogue you've added.

    You can email me at mizztigger@hotmail.co.uk.

  4. 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.

  5. Wow lucky you! Great picks too (esp the candy haha!) I would love to join, as I have some good patterns I can add, so please count me in!

  6. Nice initiative. Thank you :)
