Travel day

I spent five+ hours on the road today traveling to Norfolk, VA. I am attending a business trip for a few days. I did not sew any this weekend. Thought about it a lot and visited blogs seeing what others are doing. I had too much to do to get ready for trip so I did not get to trace patterns for fitting and cutting.

I found out about one fabric store I need to check out if I can find time to do so and find the place. Not sure that I will be able to do that or not. Thank goodness there are fabric websites or I would be in the world of hurt for fashion fabrics.

I did buy two patterns yesterday at Hancocks. I went looking for a button for my jacket that I have not finished yet because of not finding the right button. Did not find one at Hancocks either. Between them and JoAnn's, they normally have the better selection of buttons.

Here is the KS pattern I bought. I also purchased a McCall's Pattern.

I saw both patterns on Debbie C's and Erica B's blogs. I of course went right out and bought them. While at ASG in DC this past August, several of our ASG members went to a mall and window shopped. We saw numerous examples of the McCall's jacket on display.

Okay, I am tired now and ready to call it a day. Traveling can be tiresome.


  1. Lovely patterns! I especially like model A on your KS pattern.
    Hope you're not too frustrated at not sewing at all this weekend. My week is never as good if I haven't had my dose of sewing in the weekend ;)

  2. I really need to get that KS pattern. I'm dying to make it!

  3. I went to the mall this weekend and those little crop jackets are everywhere!

  4. Those two girls make me run out and buy stuff, too. Can't wait to see what you make from these!

  5. I love the jacket too - blogged about it and then realised I couldn't buy it in the UK yet! Then I went to work this morning and the receptionist was wearing a jacket identical to this pattern! Can't wait to get my hands on it - I've already got some purple tweed fabric picked out!

  6. I can't wait to see the cropped jacket made up! I don't know how I missed this one when everyone has been blogging about it!
