I know I've been kind of missing but I was SO BUSY the past few weeks at work that I just did not have time to blog or sew. Last week I was able to get caught up at work and home. So yesterday I went to Hancocks because there was a McCall's pattern I wanted. Of course, they didn't have it! No surprise. But I sat down and looked through the book and found four others that I like. AND, they're 88 cents this weekend! (I wonder how the stores can do these pattern sales after I read on someone's blog that it costs like $40,000 to produce one pattern!!!!)

M5860








I've already cut out 5860 for two tops one in a yellow and another in an orange solid from my fabric collection. Planning to sew a skirt (not pictured) from an old New Look tonight! I've cut out two other projects as well. Hope to have pictures of a completed project or two tomorrow.

Happy Memorial Day!!

Those patterns look great!

I guess they make up for it in other countries. To buy a McCalls pattern here in Australia, it normally costs us between $15 and $20. Sometimes they have half-price sales, but that's as good as it gets. Needless to say, Burda WOF and Ottobre are pretty good value here.

I love your blog. I follow it in Google Reader. Thanks for taking the time to keep it updated.

I like your pattern choices, particularly 5860. I look forward to seeing your interpretation of it!

Nice choices! I understand that the patterns are "loss leaders" for Joann and Hancock--they pay more to buy them wholesale than they sell them. Don't know whether this is true, but I'd believe it.
