Simplicity 4047, which is now out of print. I am thinking of sewing the top first and if I have time, the skirt. I work all day today and tomorrow, but Sunday afternoon is free! Weeee! I have fabric that has been in my stash since last summer that has been earmarked for these projects specifically. I have exhausted my resources for reviews of this pattern. One woman made this top three times, so I can only hope this a good sign. The pattern seems to be fairly straightforward. Hopefully I won't be eating my words Sunday night. (But what will I eat on Sunday???)

Even though I have an ever growing pile of patterns, I still woke up to an alarm to remind me of the sale on Vogue patterns at Joanne's. It was just too tempting. With all of my will power I walked away with just two patterns in my hot little hands. Two! I say victory. Or, the fact that not much else was appealing to me and my pattern-cohort. And ALL of the McCall's patterns were only two bucks. Doesn't say much for McCall's. On to the patterns —who were the lucky winners? A great little number from Anna Sui (shown above), which I am already thinking about sewing in black. Or a black pattern. Or navy. Well, we'll get to that later. And then this:
Soon to follow, perhaps my queue.
