crafty sewing fool


I do not have even half the time I need to do everything I want to do.  And yet here I am buying sewing patterns.  Because I am going to sew when?  Maybe I can get a monkey and teach it to do some of my stuff so I don’t have too?  A good, flattering skirt pattern that will work in multiple fabric weights will be endlessly useful in our house and, because I’ve been thinking about it for far too long, I am determined to make the Butterick 4790.  Also contemplating buying a crinoline to wear under all my full skirted dresses.  Is that ridiculous?

  1. I totally suck at commenting when I read your journal..and I do keep up with you. But I have to say, this pattern is ADORABLE!!! I want one too.

  2. Meg, I got the pattern for $5 at Joann’s!! Go get you one. I got muslin to mock it up in, but can’t believe how easy the pattern looks. I’m thinking one summer weight and one winter weight.
