why no shipping?

Sigh, a couple of perfect housedress patterns. What a pity she won't ship to Australia. I shall now commence to obsess about finding the perfect housedress pattern. Truly truly a house frock is THE most comfortable and practical garment for a hot summer day - I might even try to add pockets - inspiration from Erin, bless her.

She is a cunning little minx

I haven't heard from Stella Blue Vintage yet. Boo.
I know what her plan is. She is delaying so I will find many more cute patterns to buy.
Like this. I am enamoured of the sweetheart neckline version.

It's not clothing, but does that matter?

Ah, she does have 15 yards...

I am off to measure the windowdooropening to ensure I get enough. I think the postage will a beet of an ouch, but I am sure I will love the curtains so much that I will soon forget the pain and only remember the gain. Besides, I am not getting a fancy floor any more! And I looove heeeem so much.
Now to contemplate curtain hardware...

I must have them!

From Stella Blue Vintage, and Buy It Now!
I shall have them, as soon as I get confirmation of the shipping charges.
I loooooove the jacket in the butterick one, and it's the first jacket pattern I am excited about enough to actually consider making...what about a formalish silk or satin one, or even a denim one...ooh excitement!
And I love the Simplicity dress on the far left, with the black with faux pink collar? Or red collar? Or red with black collar?
