This Saturday is the start of my evil plan to take over the world sewing one stitch at a time. After that I am taking a much deserved break from the secret super surprise and before I start making my kids pj’s for Xmas. I am going to make something for me, Me, MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
As I mentioned before, I am jonesing to make something from my small doubleknit collection. Maybe the grey with some black accents. Or black and red. I haven’t had a chance to look through my hefty pattern collection yet, but I perused the selection at ButtMcVogue. I would have liked to search by fabric type, but that kind of search option is not available on their sites. Um, ButtMcVogue, it would be great if your search mechanism was a bit more robust please. I settled, instead to look at all the dress offerings and then looking at what fabrics were suggested for each. I wanted a slightly fitted dress to take advantage of the stretch of the doubleknit, but nothing too skin tight. I don’t want to be asked again when my baby is due like I was asked this past weekend. Can you believe it???? I was so pissed and then so depressed about it. Where’s a white chocolate bar when you most need it? Needless to say, I have been back to running. Let me tell you, there’s nothing like someone saying you look so fat you might be pregnant to motivate you.
There was a sale at ButtMcVogue this past week, so I picked up a few patterns…Remember how I saw someone at work wearing this exact dress???? Love this dress but may be a little low cut for work. I love how with this one you can use two different colors. I wonder how I would color block if I use the view with the sleeves. Keep the sleeves the main color or the accent color. What do you think?
I have to look at what I already own too that would work well for double knits. I’m sure I have at least 5 or 6 patterns from which to choose.
I can’t wait to sew for me!
Do you have any favorite patterns for doubleknits?
