Until...seeing so many of Robin's great garments made from NL patterns (chip, chip, chip--the breaking down process had begun), then the whammo of Cennetta's version of this dress last week. That just did it. On my last trip to Walmart, I snagged the last envelope of NL 6749 pictured below:
What???? This can't be the same pattern as Cennetta's dress! Hers is much more beautiful than the pattern cover. I would have passed this over big time if I did not see her version. However, her lovely dress broke me down. And now I've added an NL pattern to my stash--first time in about 4 years.
So we'll see what happens. I really like that View D. However, the end of summer is quickly approaching and I don't know if I'll get to it. It would make a nice holiday party dress though.
But yeah, they both broke me down. I got the pattern--the only one added to my stash since March. Sure hope my eventual version will turn out as lovely as Cennetta's.
No sewing for today. Just nice sewing thoughts while doing housework.
