I also want to get back to my SWAP and here are the patterns and fabric for my next project. I am hoping to have it done before I leave for a short five day trip, this Thursday, to the mainland to visit family and a couple of dear friends. I haven't left Hawaii for 2 1/2 years and I am so excited to see everyone. I will also enjoy a day of fabric shopping in my old hometown of Portland, OR. I can't wait!
I also wanted to share with you some Vogue patterns I bought recently through an online sale. There are no fabric stores which carry Vogue here. So sad. My last success with Vogue has certainly motivated me to try more. When I leave for the mainland, I will bring fabric measurements for several of these as I browse the fabric stores. I will be excited to share with you what I find when I get back. Of the seven, my two favorites are the Cynthia Steffe dress (V1151) and the Donna Karan (View B) tunic and narrow slacks (V2064). I don't know if any of these are new for the season, but these are the ones that spoke to me when I searched the sale.
I've enjoyed seeing what many of you are excited about this fall with regards to patterns and fabric. I think it will be an exciting and always inspiring sewing blog season!
