I have done a Very Bad Thing. I have coveted a vintage pattern that was quite expensive. It's a 1930s dress pattern. I really like it. So I bought it..... I can't tell you how much I paid because it's just too naughty... I'll post photos when it arrives though....
I am a larger bust size so I got a bit excited this pattern was my size!
How much is too much to pay? I love a charity shop find or an ebay bargain but my pattern box is bulging with cheapo patterns I bought that are not attractive or not in my size....
Do you buy lots of cheap patterns or hang out for the one you want and pay a big price for it if necessary?
How much is the most you have paid for a pattern?
Charolette, I think you are rubbing off on me,ha. I just bid on 4 different auctions on ebay.. ooooh.I need to stop.. I think I have patterns coming in the mail nearly every day.
oooh oooh hope you win!
Our postman has worn a groove in the path delivering all the patterns, ha ha x
Mine too.. bet our postmen are really wondering , 'what on earth are they ordering?" ha
I am like a kid at Christmas time.. Cant wait to tear into the package to see what pattern..I have been ordering so many..I can't even remember ,what I have ordered.. [this is bad!!!]
thanks for your reply Cathe, I agree one really good pattern that you love is the way to go. However I am doing both things at once, lots of cheap and cheerful plus expensive splurging. I must I must I must stop soon! I don't think they do pattern buying rehab.....
I too like Debi's suggestion but I can't see myself doing it! ;0)
I like your logic... When you say it........... It sounds like I'm not spending ,spending,spending on patterns. .ha.. You made me feel better about my last week splurges on patterns..
It's Butterick 3858 and was printed in New York. It has an instruction sheet. I will read it and report back!
Your thoughts are gratefully received.
If this isn't a complicated question, how do you tell from the number?
