Problem Solved!


I have finally found patterns to thrill Miss Mischief's heart!!!! Spotlight had an Autumn and a Winter catalogue there for Simplicity and they had a buy 1 get 1 free deal, plus my 10% VIP discount. So I think that is a fabulous deal!!!! I bought material to make the pattern on the right and the nightie in the centre and have pre-washed both pieces. I will be making the nightie this weekend and will make the dress in pinwhale corduroy sometime next week (I hope!). She loved the print of the pinwhale and keeps stroking the white flannel for the nightie LOL. She was thrilled with the lace I got for the nightie too so she's very excited.

To those of you who commented and left links to pattern sites I wanted to say a huge thank you. I was able to browse through those with Miss Mischief and sort through what she like and what she didn't so that I could confidently go looking at my leisure (while the kids were at school this time). If I was in the States and didn't have to deal with the conversion issues as well I would've had no hassles ordering patterns from those companies. But I wanted to have one more very careful look before I decided I needed to order from overseas. They were all beautiful patterns.

Oh...and for those Aussie gals who are interested...in the costume section of the Simplicity book, you can get the Regency Era gown from Sense and Sensibility, without paying for currency conversion and postage :)

Tracy, I love seeing little girls in little girl dresses....possibly because I only have boys....but it's so offputting seeing little ladies under 10 wearing clothes that wouldn't look out of place at a nightclub! I'm looking forward to seeing the results of your labours. Lisa x

Tracy, have fun with your sewing projects. The material looks really great and I like the patterns that you have shown us. It is so much fun to see the finished product and to know that you did were the one to do it! Good buys!!!
