If you’re following me on Facebook, you might remember me saying that I’d gone a little crazy in the pattern-buying department last week… Oh, buyer’s remorse!
Well my parcel arrived today, and I’m remorseful no longer. A bunch of lovely Australian-made patterns in 36-38-40 inch bust sizes, and even some ‘Pauline’ patterns which I adore
I’d love to share some of my favourite ones with you!
Pauline 5299 – Lady’s Slenderising Dress size 40
I love the split neckline and waist detail on this one. Can’t wait to make it up, perhaps with a contrast.
Fashion Cut Pattern 6699 – Bust 36
Yowza – what isn’t there to love about this one?! There’s so much going on here.
Pauline 5128 – 40 Bust
Another fabulous Pauline pattern, I really love the way they used stripes on the left.
Fashion Cut Pattern – 36 Bust
Buttons! Buttons on pockets!
Pauline 2042 – 40 Bust
Another pattern I’ve been chasing in my size for years, I love the square neckline and basque.
And finally, Pauline 5424 – 40 bust
This pattern has been on my wishlist for seven years! I’m not sure why I’m so entranced by it, but I think the shaped yoke and V-pockets are darling. Definitely making this up.
I normally have a really firm budget for patterns, but I also know that I won’t see these for sale again. What to do?
After thinking about it long and hard, I’ve decided that it’s OK to break the rules for Pauline patterns.
What about you, is there something you’ll break your budget rules for?
