PatternRunway on Etsy

So I came across this great pattern maker - Pattern Runway.  They have some adorable patterns - they also offer a package deal if you buy multiples.  Their main shop is through Etsy but I really can't wait to try making these.

Relaxed Fit Shift Dress

Pussy Bow Blouse 

Short Sleeved Dress Pattern

and this hot little One Shouldered Dress

Sewing Patterns by LilyGiggle

So, have you heard of LilyGiggle.com?  They have some adorable dresses and even better, many of them are made from old tees.  I really like the idea of recycling and repurposing.  I have a ton of old Hannas that don't fit but I love the quality and the patterns.  I'm thinking some of them may be great for this idea!

Here's the four patterns I'm going to get and try out.  Even better, the more you order, the better the discount  All credits for the photos belong to LilyGiggle.com.  Click through to see more views of the patterns.

and one for me: The Odelia Skirt

Burda Patterns for Tween Years

So Burda has a few that I think will be great for those tween patterns I've been looking for.  I already bought #9465 the other day along with some adorable white batiste with tiny pink roses and a royal blue with tiny dragonflies. Just finished pre-washing, I don't usually but this was all from Joann's and they aren't the most reliable on fabric quality.

Here are the others I'm planning on getting for this summer.  This fun little sundress.


A jacket and skirt combo pair.  #9547

This one could be really cute as well.  I was thinking it might be nice over a slim fitting tee for a little more coverage.  #9697

New Sewing Patterns from Vogue

I really like some of the new Vogue patterns for spring.  Here's some of my favorites to buy when they go on sale.

Rebecca Taylor #1344 is a cute short dress.  Could really be fun with some flip-flops and a cross body bag on the beach.

In the right jersey, this could be really flattering.  Designed by Donna Karan #1342 could really go very formal, but could also be a very sexy casual number - the back is great as well,

Not so sure about the hemline on this next one, but as a very easy pattern, it looks like it could be great for those beautiful charmeuse prints that you have in your stash.  I buy them every so often at Joann's and never have any idea what I will do with them.  Pattern #8870

Finally, if I went on cruises (which I never do), I would love this new vintage number - wow that's an oxymoron.  #8874  The bow in front is just too cute.

Vintage Vogue Stunner

Not sure how I missed this but isn't this a stunner....

Vogue 8850

And this one, they needed a much bustier model to show this off, but it would be delightful for the naughty, sexy librarian look!

Vogue Spring 2013

Some very strange and a few very cute spring patterns from Vogue.

I like this Donna Karan - 1342

A cute very easy one - 8879

This one is really cute in a solid colorway - maybe a jersey knit.
