The time had come to make something that was a little more complicated. I had picked up 2 old patterns a couple of weeks ago but was a bit hesitant to use them as I have never used a ‘proper’ pattern before. I have cut around items, used simple printed patterns from the internet and freestyled a bit. I decided to go for the Butterick 3664. I wasn’t really sure how to find the year the pattern was made, but it was bought in an antique store so that makes it old right?
Coming to Alabama meant that I had to leave ALL of my sewing supplies at home. As I walked out of our house, I could hear my sewing machine crying. 🙁
When we arrived in Mobile, Adam found a bargain of a machine online and bought it for me on the understanding that I made him some pyjamas! Good deal!
We found the local fabric store and it was AMAZING! There isn’t just a couple of isles of fabric…..there is a full row of fabric isles at Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft!!! I got some essentials; pins, scissors, cutting mat etc and bought a range of fabric without going overboard.
