New pattern

I got the dress pattern I ordered in the mail today. Butterick 5209 is now mine and I can't wait to make it!

I'm going to be making view B (aka the one with sleeves) in red for a pulp detective novel cover costume with my friend Mike. It's sure to me lots of fun. We're going to base our poses off of the different covers.

Aren't they great?! The costume is sure to be a good time.

In other sewing news, I have a few commissions that I have taken on. I will be doing a coat for my cousin as well as two Hogwarts robes for a friend and his sister. I'm excited to work on them. My cousin will be mailing me the fabric for her coat and I can't wait to see what she picks out. 

Till then, I will start working on my Christmas gifts. I already have half my cards made which is really half the battle.



  1. I am making candles with individualized scents and apple butter for all of our family and friends. I started working yesterday and I have about half left to do , so not too bad. :)

  2. @zaraphel That sounds lovely. I'm going to be making some small journals and bags for people.
