I wanted to get some new tops patterns and after browsing the Simplicity site, I found several basic tops that I could make in different fabrics, as well as a dress pattern that had a detail I could not say no to. I ended up ordering 5 patterns while their $3.99 sale was on, and will be happily awaiting their arrival. These are the new ones I ordered.

patterns

 

New Look 6816 I want to make the view the model is wearing, with the mid-length gathered sleeves.

New Look 6838 I want to do the one shown in stripes (and I might even use a striped knit for it- I love stripes!) and maybe the sleeveless shell. I’m not liking the slight v-neck on the other top at all.

Simplicity 1716 I like the one modeled in purple stripes with the slight cowl neck. If I’m not careful, I am going to have ten cowl-necked tops and dresses in my closet.

Simplicity 1612 is a dress I have instantly fallen in love with. The keyhole back actually appears to be twisted, and I can see this as a nicer dress depending on the fabric in the longer length as well.

Simplicity 1613 I actually tried to win on eBay the other day, but was hugely outbid at the last second. I want to do the mid-length sleeve off the shoulder variation of it.

I also ordered a year’s membership for Club BMV, which in my cart showed as being $4.99 after a $5 coupon, but it actually charged me $9.99, so I sent an email to them asking for an explanation, and hopefully a partial refund. The cart showed my total as $4.99 and it showed $4.99 at PayPal, but my receipt says $9.99. :angry:

Tomorrow (well today when you read this) I’ll hopefully be working on my current project in my craft room after the veggie delivery comes. Maybe I’ll have soemthing to show you at the end of the day. :sideways:
