The test garments follow up

My last test garments are ready. I have no more time to make more. I still have to help my mother with some spring cleaning and my work is calling as well.

1. I ma glad though I have managed to make the top of this Butterick pattern B5813. Generally speaking I will have make simple strait skirt to it but I prefer to have it cut in the waist. I have to try it and check it.

My goodies arrived!

What a nice surprise was waiting for me when I have came back from my work … the patterns I ordered by the Vogue/Butterick Pattern company has arrived. My pattern stash is getting bigger… ooops. But this 75% discount by Vogue and Butterick was so tempting Knipogende emoticon

There are few retro patterns, few patterns from the newest Butterick collection and some old ones I had on my wish list.

Yes… I will be busy… Emoticon met brede lach
