Then I ducked into Anh's fabrics in Sydney Road on Monday, and discovered New Look 6108. The lovely lady in the shop suggested I look through the box of patterns ( paper stapled together, no colour envelope) - I had looked all through the stand of patterns, but had never looked in the box before. Not sure why they have no covers, but there were a few interesting patterns in there, plus they are only $2 each!
A quick google search turned up some positive reviews- and photos- plus I found the pattern for sale on ebay, so took a screen shot of the cover pic and printed it out so I now have the front cover pic, and more importantly, the back cover with fabric sizes listed.
I already had some fabric at home - just enough to squeeze a top out of, traced off a pattern cut it out, and got the overlocker out for the first time this year!
Of course, the weather then plummeted and it was too darn cold to wear it yesterday! Trying it out today - with a jacket! Planning on redrafting pattern to make one with kimono sleeve- mash up of the Maria Denmark free kimono sleeve top & this top. Might play around with drawing it up at craft group tonight!
