Exciting news! A lovely package arrived in the mail from G Marie Sews! What could it be? Oh wait, I totally gave it away with the title of this post… and the button… It's the Pattern Pyramid!
|look it's a pyramid!|
Actually, I didn't even start blogging until this July! So I missed out on the first bit, but I was reading, and started following along. You see this was around the time I was first starting out sewing. And I'd like to think the pattern pyramid and some other events (which I will reveal in a later post) pushed me to start my own blog. So if you actually don't have a blog, now's the perfect time to start one!
so i was super excited to finally win! (and now i've had to restrain myself from entering any of the other pattern pyramids that have gone live recently.) so which pattern did i choose? the Simplicity at the top of the pyramid, which looks to be the one G Marie added to the mix! The full skirt on that dress was calling my name, and i can try my hand at grading it down a bit. She also included some lovely brown and pink printed fabric! Would it be cute to do the top of a dress in a matching pink solid and the skirt part in the printed fabric? Just a thought. Truth be told, I also read through the Burda magazine, which is in german! So i got to practice my german!
I will be adding a few things to the mix, so it will be a surprise! Leave me a comment if you'd like to enter, and I'll draw a winner next Monday night, Oct. 15th. I've got to be honest - this is the best legal pyramid scheme around.
Thank you for stopping by!
P.S. I finally went back and finished alma #1, wore it on thursday and took pics! Will post soon, promise! And #2 is coming along really well (after i fixed all of my careless mistakes from the other night, ha ha!) Exciting stuff!
