Pattern sale!

Clegs in Melbourne currently have 1/2 price McCalls patterns.  Sadly it's not the Simplicity sale that Mrs Beckinsale wants but since it was Butterick last week maybe it will be Simplicity soon.

I intend to buy this:

I think it's so cute!!  More summer clothes for me YAY.

And this:

I've been thinking about making an apron, would really like it for when I get crafting in the kitchen.  Now seemed like a good time because we're having 18 people over for Christmas and I don't want to spill food on my clothes during prep.  I  just love this pattern, it's got the perfect retro shape without being frilly.

I feel a bit pathetic buying a pattern for such a simple apron when I could draft it myself, but sometimes it's nice to let someone else do the hard work and just have fun with the sewing part.  Now I just have to decide what fabrics to use and whether I want the apron with the bow or not.

  1. Curses! Some day I'll get my Simplicity sale.

    I was looking at that McCalls dress pattern for myself. A classic shape with a lot of scope for contrasting fabrics. I love the different scales of black and white prints they've used, very effective.
