it's all about the shoes...
The final Patterns of the Month are finished and are going out email today and tomorrow. I think these are both great Spring projects!
‘Simple-icity’, the standard gauge pattern is totally stockinette and the article with it has a ton of information about planning your garment and tips for finishing, such as when do you need to add a stitch for seaming or not and of course, those great patch pockets and details like the buttonholes and even tips on sewing on buttons.
‘Two Step’ is the mid gauge pattern - hand transferred lace with a ton of techniques and the article has tips on hand transfers, planning your lace garment and the actual hand manipulations - it fit Agnieszka perfectly and looks great on her - now, she’s my daughter-in-law and I love her, but, look at this picture! While talking on the phone and setting up this little photo shoot, she’s asking what do I want her to wear and I say, oh, just jeans and a black tank and she says, what about shoes? and then she answers herself - oh, I know it won’t matter because you usually chop it off just below the hem. So, there we are, in front of the camera and I’m saying, ‘what the...?’ We are actually the same height!
Anyway, thanks for subscribing - the patterns can be purchased as singles, either as a pdf emailed to you or snail-mailed on a cd. I've had people asking about renewing for the next batch and I just wanted say that this was a trial - limited to the 3 month deal, so I could judge what I was letting myself in for - I hate to say this but the response was rather poor and I found myself again working for peanuts, so I will not be continuing on a subscription basis. I may have more patterns offered as singles in the future - please keep checking back to see what's up. April is a busy month, with the seminars - hope to see you at one of them!
