Black Friday & New (to me) Vogue Patterns

Of course, once I decided that I would purchase a new sewing machine on Black Friday..... That, really meant two things:
#1 - I would need to purchase some fabric (more on that later); and #2 - I would need to purchase some patterns.  Ha-ha!  Any excuse will do.

On Vogue Patterns Website - there's a fantastic $.99 sale on Out of Print Patterns (hence, they are new to me!).  The best part about OOP - there are reviews on Pattern Review (I love that website) and it helps me make a more informed decision on whether or not I should try a pattern.


I already ordered some yellow broadcloth to make this exact dress.  I would love to rock this on my b-day!


I purchased a few other patterns, but these highlight the newest arrivals in my collection.  I'm sew excited.  And, yes, I was up at 6 a.m. setting up the sewing machine.  As soon as I finish my coffee, I'll be making automatic button holes!  I'm gonna try all 8 of them out.  I can't believe I went from straight / zigzag stitch to 80 stitches overnight.  OMG!  **Insert insanely happy, happy dance!**

Needles Up,
Always Audrey

  1. I've sampled all of the button hole types. I've tried out the blind hem stitch. Several of the straight/zigzag and decorative stitches. I spent some time watching you tube videos.

    And, of course - I read the whole manual! Wow, so much new to learn.
