It's been a long hot summer, but the temperature is dropping fast down here. We've even had some rain, although the drought is a long way from over. I let Amy choose her fabrics and styles because I think she should be able to wear what she likes. Even if it makes me feel nauseous and like I have been poked in the eye. It feels really weird to be working in corduroy after a seemingly endless season of muslin and the lightest possible cottons.Both patterns are from Ottobre magazine and while they don't include seam allowances (a recipe for disaster when I'm cutting out - I always forget to add them), the patterns in this mag are really good. They are straightforward, fit well and actually work. It's a little bit pricey, but I'll be renewing my subscription. I love that I can just pull out a year's worth of them to find something from any season when Amy needs a new garment.
I also have a copy of the grown ups mag because it includes sizes for big women, but I am yet to make anything from it.
