Updates September 12.

 I have put aside the Simplicity pattern mentioned in my last post. I am just not feeling it. The fabric is just not right for this pattern. Every time I walked into my sewing room, I just could not bring myself to work on it. I always felt I should finish what I started sewing; and when I do this, I get to the point where I am hating the project, get it completed and I don't like the end product.

Life is just too short for me to continue down that path. I may go back to it and may not. I really need a different fabric for this to be successful.

So I am reviewing patterns that I have been wanting to sew plus looking at some new indie patterns recently purchased.

Not sure what it will be and have decided on two fabrics that I will use.

I recently purchased two patterns from Something Delightful both McCalls. I also purchased a New Look pattern at Hobby Lobby.

McCall's patterns are 7808 and 8097. For 7808 I am more interested in View D &E; for 8097 I plan to make View B. New Look 6511 is for tops and I was wanting to make View C with View B sleeves or stay with sleeveless.  This may end up being made next spring. This pattern appears to be OOP but available on eBay and may still be at Hobby Lobby.

I also purchased a pastel pink/gray fabric from So Sew English. Pastel fabrics don't normally interest me but I was drawn to this fabric. I like SSE fabrics, they are of good quality, shipping is somewhat slow but worth it for the quality. This was going to be a layered dress, though I may change my mind.

That's it for now.
