I try not to keep hold of things I am not going to use any more. Like most people trying to reduce clutter, it is very much a work in progress. Books, magazines and patterns (basically, any form of printed paper!) I seem to become attached to and they can frequently be found arranged in artful piles around the house. Apart from being an eyesore, someone else might enjoy looking at some of these things, which I realise but it's slow going reducing the piles. I am inclined to re-read everything before I pass it on, and to be frank I am not going to live that long. My biggest success so far has been with home furnishing sewing books. I am not going to sugar coat this - I hate sewing curtains etc. because they are basically huge squares, and I will only do so if I have to, so FIVE books on sewing home furnishings was somewhat excessive and taking up valuable book shelf! I have donated four and kept the most comprehensive one for next time I have to cover a window.
It's in this spirit I am offering the patterns below to anyone who would like them. They are either too small for me now or I don't think I will use them.
|UK Sizes 8,10, 12 - tops for wovens|
|UK Sizes 6, 8, 10, 12 , classic shell tops/ evening wear - for wovens|
|UK sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 - casual bottoms for wovens - UPDATE - DISPATCHED|
|UK sizes 6 - 16 - pretty summer dresses with bodice choice for wovens|
|burdastyle magazine issue 5/2012 for snaps of styles see below - UPDATE - DISPATCHED|
All new in factory folds from smoke free home etc. Will ship anywhere. Closing date 31st July 2013. Any unclaimed patterns will be donated.
As I have a small (yet cherished) blog readership I will be going with first come first served again. Just leave a comment below with whatever pattern tickles your fancy and I will post it to you whenever I can get to the post office.
Happy sewing, 'til next time!
