I got some new patterns.

Yesterday I went to my local Joann Fabrics and picked up some McCall's patterns for $1.99 each.

Hopefully, this time I will get to sew all of them because I really need some new clothes that fit.

I picked up some pants, dresses and tops patterns. I ended up buying something for my little girl. That little girl is taking away all my sewing hours which by the way are not that many.

My spring sewing plans

Firstable, let me say that the pattern companies are not helping me out to get my "sewing mojo" back. I visited the sewing store trying to find patterns that I like and lately it is very rare to come home with more than one pattern.

I just checked the Simplicity website to see if the new spring patterns were out and these were my favorites.

Since I had a daughter I cannot look at sewing patterns without thinking about what could I sew for her. It is a trap! I like this Simplicity pattern to make her some summer outfits. Adding to my pattern collection.

It was very hard to find a pattern that would not look like a sewing pattern I already own. This may not be many people favorite, but I like it because it looks modern and easy to sew. I like the one shoulder look.

This is a must have! Finally a pattern for mother and daughter. Reminds me of Matilda Jane clothing.

I hope you like my choices. Now I need to find some spare time to sew.
