Addiction… Yes I Admit it



Yes I am Addicted


Yes, I have a problem I am addicted to patterns.  Yes I love to sew and the BMV club does not help this addiction. 

The pic above is the haul of patterns I got from their .99 cent sale.  Club BMV (Butterick McCalls Vogue) is a membership that is only $9.99 a year and you get discounts on patterns so even with the .99 cent sale on McCalls and Butterick, $2.99 for Vogue *yes 2.99 for Vogue* the Club BMV members paid less than that.  If you are an avid sewer, or you cant always make it to JoAnns or Handcock for their sales check out McCalls website it will take you to the other two…. Club BMV is worth the money but I will warn you their shipping will HURT lol but it still has not stopped me. lol 

So I got some patterns for the spring.  I am really interested in making a peblem  top, and making a white vogue skirt with all the ruffles…. and the wrap dress… Yes i could go on and on… 

I have a horde of patterns already but I did not have these…. 

So I will keep yall posted on which ones I make…. I think the top will be first… I cant wait for it to warm up and i can wear my spring stuff….. 

‘Til Next Time…

lbd-3 lbd-1 lbd-2

Here are a few shots of the dress and jacket.  I used matte jersey black knit material, and Asian inspired satin brocade.

I used Butterick pattern B5309 the pattern is OOP 😦 but I have had it for years.

B5309 It says its easy… yes the dress was easy, but the jacket gave me the blues with the collar…. but I did my best Tim Gunn….”Make it Work”

I am  pleased with my overall results and look forward to wearing this out with Mista Man….

What do you Divas think?
