Stuff I Forgot

by Erin on December 18, 2008

Holly at LuciteBox Vintage asked me to point out that even though she'll be away from the 22nd-28th, she'll be shipping again on the 29th, AND the discount (15% off anything on the site) and the donation (10% to Books Through Bars in honor of the purchaser) still applies until the 27th!

And I missed a whole slew of stuff from Pamela (of GlamourStitch, GlamourSavvy, and GlamourSurf … and Glamoursurf, by the way, is offering 20% off through Dec 31, enter the keyword "Santa")

So you could get a discount on something like this:

swimsuit

Or this:

McCalls 5648

Or you could just head over to Glamourstitch for this:

McCalls 4312

Or to Glamoursavvy for these boudoir shoes, which if they were my size, would have never seen the light of blog (despite the fact that my nightwear now consists solely of exercise clothes, so as to obviate one more excuse to avoid the treadmill, and these would look ridiculous with Target flare-leg yoga pants):

boudoir shoes

Whew! Okay, now I think that's it. But if not, email me!

Gosh, I think that’s the first massive file folder I’ve already seen on a sewing pattern.

Can I just have the shoes on the swimsuit pattern?

Love the bedroom shoes. I firmly believe things that can’t be doen in high heels are not worth doing.

I can tell you knowledgeably that the daniel green bedroom slips are XLNT. Plus if you’re wearing them you can get out of taking out the garbage and stay inside to have a nice drink instead.

Ha! I’m wearing my workout clothes to bed now for the exact same reason. It just seems like insult to injury to have to change clothes just so I can exercise in the morning.

Okay, that file folder or whatever it is on that pattern envelope is either really ridiculous or supremely sublime. Is there something about working women that they are trying to get across? Maybe the idea that women could work if they made this skirt pattern? I would love to have the pattern just for the illustration!Happy sewing all.Teresabtw….it is FREEZING in sunny California at the moment. It’s in the 50′s today in the SF Bay Area.

the file folder is perplexing and hilarious.um… 50′s is NOT freezing! 50′s is warm enough for CROCS. It’s 15 degrees here in Chiccago, and the city is bracing to shut down for a snowstorm with thunder and lightning. Whaaaa???

I love those boudoir slipper and I would wear them with Target flare-leg yoga pants any day of the week. :):):) If I could get away with it, I would wear them with a cocktail dress for a Christmas party. As for the “file folder” the pattern ladies are holding up… that is what I thought at first but they are actually holding up the pattern tissue. It is the skirt and the waist band. :):):) I have to tell you it took me a long while to figure it out too… k

These slippers would go with a white flannel nightgown with pink flowers all over. the ruffle at the bottom of the night gown could be taken off and replaced witha ruffle made of satin fabric of the same color of the slippers!

OMG I’m heading out RIGHT NOW to get whatever cosmetic surgery I need to fit into that black suit. I was born to wear that.

The pattern ladies are pretty awesome. That’s the only time I’ve seen the models participate in hawking the pattern in any way aside from lookin’ pretty. But if not for Kelly’s comment, I would still not know what they were trying to do.

Forget the slippers! That is the CUTEST bathing suit I have ever seen! If only I had the body to wear it I’d probably never wear “real” clothes again…. (Ok, I’m exaggerating. But I love that swimsuit!).
