Today's Pattern Story: Vogue 7319

Annette: So you know when your heart is first broken, and it feels like throwing your back out? You’re stiff, and unnatural, and you can’t move without that jolt of pain? Then it turns into more of a toothache, one that gives you a sudden sharp stab when you bite wrong? And after that it’s like an ugly bruise — it hurts when you touch it and is grotesquely green and purple-yellow, so you try to keep it covered up? Then like a paper cut, that stings when you get lemon juice in it? Finally you just have a scar, and maybe a long time after that, if you’re lucky, you have to actually stop and think about it, like when you’re trying to remember if that ankle you sprained when you were six was your left or your right? Well, I’m probably in the bruise stage right now.

Glenda: Annette, honestly, it’s okay to answer “Fine, and you?” when someone asks, “How are you?”

  1. Yummm! What a nice coat pattern. Good shape, simple lines, very classic as well as classy. I would leave off the patch pockets and make in-seam ones. But the collar – and the swing back. I die. Now, if I just had the Patience and 10 yards of good wool gabardine . . . navy I think or maybe charcoal.


  2. I’ve enjoyed your blog for a long while, but haven’t stopped by much since the latest formatting change. I want to be able to read a post, then the next, then the next. Either way new to older or older to newer. But I simply can’t figure this out on your blog! I don’t want to go back to the home page and try to remember, based on your title, if I’ve read a post. Two other sewing blogs use this same format, and I’m writing the same thing to them.

    Please make this easy! Thank you.
