The good and the bad

The bad: I learned my favourite fabric store in Toronto is closing (the Fabricland at Yonge & Bloor).

The good: Everything was going at 50% off until July 31st -- and the patterns 66% off!

I can't believe what I found. I could splurge on a few patterns I had my eye on for a while at a pretty decent price.

Karen's jacket is totally the inspiration for Simplicity 2443. I look forward to re-reading her posts before making it to learn from her experience.

This last one is the one I am most excited about. I've been dreaming about it ever since I saw this post. This is a really good design for pear-figures.


  1. I've had that last vogue pattern forever! I haven't touched it yet! Its definitely on the list for Autumn sewing! I'm trying to stashbust though and i'm not sure what fabric I could get away with. I would love that silk too!

  2. I've made that darling Cythnia Rowling was beautiful to put together. Looks like you picked up some great patterns, but how sad your store is closing!
