Well, we're mostly unpacked and the epic laundry pile is slowly getting done, so I thought I take a moment and share some of the fun things I brought home to my sewing room.
the LBD book, and it is really fun. The book doesn't include patterns - rather, you draft your own shoulder princess seam sloper and then adapt it to make 3 classic LBD styles, a sleeveless sheath, a flowing classic wrap dress and a slinky strapless number. As a bonus, there are instructions for a simple cropped jacket and a hat to complete your look. Super fun! The Famous Frocks book does include patterns for knockoffs of 10 classic iconic looks - From Marilyn's white halter number to Jackie O's classic sheath. Each pattern also includes instructions for a variation for each pattern. I'm also excited to have Brave New Knits, which I got for my sister last year, and liked so much I put it on my own wish list.
But there was more fun stuff that wasn't under the tree!
