In which a bit of an enthusiast discourses on six patterns’ specifics

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!   image (2) 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?   image (1) 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! image (6) 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! image (3)   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! image (4) 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? image (5)

So there we have it.  I’m hoping I can bash out a couple of these really quickly.  After all, there’s a reward in it.  And the happy feelings of a stitcher who has jumped her own (embroidery) hoops!   abitofanenthusiast signature

  1. Fab – I can’t wait to see you in some of these and join in with some of the sewing challenges. The skirt looks gorgeous in that fabric by the way. If you get stuck with anything you know where I live! 🙂
