So my husband has just left for nearly two weeks in the US. This is going to be happening four or five times a year now. To make up for the very hard work of solo parenting, I decided to have some patterns and fabrics delivered to him while in the US, thus saving me the exorbitant shipping costs that most US sites charge.
These are the three Vogue patterns I chose: 1333,
I also ordered some fabric from fabricmartfabrics. I actually ordered exactly the fabric that I would need to make up these three patterns. They all use quite a bit of fabric, especially the dress and skirt. I didn’t realise that this store only ship to US and Canada, but I nearly had a heart attack when they also only accepted US and Canadian credit cards. We managed to get around it using paypal and using the hotel address, which is where it will be delivered. I SO hope that it arrives at the hotel in time. There was no shipping timeframes on the website so the whole thing is a bit of a gamble I guess. But US online fabric prices are SO GOOD and there is so much choice! Well, wait and see.
So what do you think of my pattern choices?? Have I just bought patterns 20 years too old for me?
