I thought I was done. I said I was done. But austerity will begin anew tomorrow. I took advantage of the Vogue sale ($4.75 per pattern, you just have to wait until January 5 for them to ship) and I picked up OOP Butterick 3344 on Ebay after seeing it made up on Patternreview.
Can a girl have too many knit tops? I don't think so. And a pattern with that many variations is hard to resist. So I didn't. Especially since it was out of print.
The same explanation goes for Vogue 8536 - t-shirt, mock wrap, v-neck, sleeve variations. This one will be the basis for many other things.
I know, I know, my KwikSew T is my go-to T pattern, but it doesn't hurt to see what else is out there, right?
Then there's Vogue 8473, which I fell for when it was released last year. Mostly it's the jacket, but the more I look at the dress, the more I like it as well.
And last, but not least, another out-of-print pattern, McCall 5392 - the skinny jeans that Dei made with such success. I though I should snag them from Ebay when I saw them there in my size.
I feel only so bad about this small binge: two Vogue, $4.75 each; one OOP Butterick, $3.00 plus shipping; one McCall, $1.00 plus shipping. Basically, four patterns for under $20, including shipping costs.
Did I mention there was also free shipping with the Vogue pattern sale?
