And so we come down to the details, readers. What are the patterns in the six pattern challenge? Here, in no particular order (but with really quite blurry photos…):
McCalls – 6706 I wanted a cute skirt with structure and the ability to do those crazy fun stripes in navy and red and pink and whatnot. Plus there’s a hi-lo hem option! Kwik Sew – 4015 One of these jackets I can’t bear (not shown) but the other I really like! I need a raincoat and I really fancy trying out some laminated cotton- chevron stripes maybe? Kwik Sew – 3882 Jimjams! Plus a tank pattern. Who doesn’t need lots of jammies, right? Winter weight, Summer weight, shorts, longs- I can see lots of these being made! Butterick 5211 This is such a simple dress but I wanted something with a chilled vibe I could cinch in with a belt. I’m starting with a knit version! McCalls – 6696 Gah! Could this dress be any cuter? I love the sleeveless with full skirt option. Ja’dore. Plus I can see this in any number of the adorable Liberty prints I managed to get my mitts on recently! McCalls – 6600 Jury’s out on this one, peeps. But I do love a shirtdress- they’re so practical and effortless. I chose this as I have a RTW one that is very similar that I wear a lot- maybe in a nicer pattern and colour it could be The One?
