Today's Pattern Story (and Sale)


Butterick 6058

I have no idea whether Black Dress is looking at Blue Dress in disgust or thinly disguised longing. I think it could go either way, or possibly both.

Black Dress: What *is* it about her? I can't sleep, I can't eat, I show up deliberately wearing the same dress, just so she'll notice me … [sigh] Which she never will.

Blue Dress: Look! I think I see them coming into the harbor! Get ready for Fleet Week, Amabel! I'm so glad we wore gloves.

TOTALLY could happen. Don't you think?

Sandra at Sandritocat is having a 20% sale to celebrate her shop's second anniversary! Her anniversary is actually December 7th, but she running the sale from today, Friday, December 4th, through Monday, December 7th, at midnight EST. She will either refund through PayPal or you can wait for a revised invoice through Paypal. (Please use code “anniversary#2” in the notes section to get your 20% off.)

[I keep forgetting to add these disclaimers — Sandra is an advertiser, as was Wendy, yesterday. However, I choose the patterns and what to write about them, and I don't get any direct payment for writing about sales. I just like to.]

  1. I love the design, too.I think this austere dress is what was distributed to female prisoners when they were released out into the world again. (They sew them themselves, to learn a trade.) Blue, who was incarcerated on false charges, is looking for her family at the prison gate, and black is wondering if its worth the trouble of introducing her to Micco down at the pier, to work as a B-Girl. Theres a commission to consider…

  2. Glove Pattern (Not Included)…so why did they bother to mention it? Is there also a Shoe Pattern – Not Included? And what about hair-dos? I mean really…what a tease!

  3. I can understand why the FCC made that rule…but Really? We all know why you mention the sales — because you are an enabler. (we all love you for it.)

  6. Im not crazy about the two buttons off to the side on this pattern. Three or four buttons would have mirrored the angled edge of the bodice opening, but two just looks like the seamstress was a bit off sewing the buttonholes in.
