  1. i love ordering patterns from Etsy. I have to be careful because it can totally get out of hand lol. Beautiful patterns =}

  2. Looks great. Don't know whether you know but there is no option for bloggers from other sites to leave messages. There is only one option. Thought I would let you know as it is unusual for a blogger and may not be intentional. If it is ignore. I left a message on PR too.

  3. @Sassy T Hi Sassy T,
    Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, I had no idea it was on that setting! I just checked my PR messages and replied to you. I have updated my blogger settings so now anyone can comment. Once again, thank you :)

  4. @nikol.joi I promised myself not to buy any more patterns until 2012 but I am weak when it comes to vintage!!! Love it so much!!

  5. Oh that's great I can use my wordpress now lol. I have not done anything on my blogger one so don't tend to use it just yet. Only used it to let you know.

  6. I've been reading your blog obsessively in the last few weeks. You and I have very similar taste in clothes, about the same sewing skill level and body type. I've wanted to comment for the longest time to tell you your blog's awesome. I bought half of the patterns you have.


  7. @FSW Thank you!! I'm so happy to get comments from readers :) I love reading sewing blogs, especially when the person has similar body shape and taste. What's your blog? I'd love to follow you and see your dresses!!

  8. @sassytinacreates thanks again, I really appreciate u letting me know and going through the effort of setting up a blogger account just to do so, (i know how much of a pain it is to create logins and passwords.. grr). I'll follow you on Bloglovin :) PS. Thanks to u, I am now getting more comments in one day than I did..EVER! I always wondered why I wasn't getting many comments, even though my blog was being viewed heaps by PR members!! So happy :) x

  9. Hey Neeno!!!
    Wow you're super busy!! And always it pays off everything looks great!! I 've also been eyeing that Simplicity 3222 pattern, I can't wait to see what you do with your yours , then I think I"ll give it a shot, LOL....I love buying patterns from Etsy, they do have some fun and hard to find patterns. Have a great weekend!!!

    Hugs (Bajanbreeze :-)
