A little bit of shopping

One of the things I love most about reading blogs is the great "places" they take me.  Last night I was checking out the latest on the Mood Sewing Network admiring Erica B's DIY Style's latest make, a lovely shirt dress using Vogue 8903.  I googled the pattern number which led me to Vogue Patterns who are having a sale!  Now here in Australia Vogue patterns are NEVER any cheaper than half price, so to find them at $3.88 caused great excitement!  This is what I bought ...........

If you are shopping from Australia the postage costs of a hefty $25.00 for one pattern is the same for up to 7 patterns then it jumps up to $55.00 (ugly), so I culled a few patterns off my list to keep it reasonable.  I'm pretty excited to be getting 7 patterns for $52.00.

Now I just have to wait for them to arrive!


  1. That's too bad about the cost of the patterns! We do get such insane sales in our stores on Vogues; it doesn't help much with the overflowing pattern collection. :) That Rachel Comey top is really fun to make.

  2. You guys are SO spoilt in the USA - everything sewing related is much cheaper, and you have access to so much more fabric than we do! I need to plan a shopping holiday!

  3. You are so right, the postage is brutal, but it still ends up WAY cheaper than buying them in the shops! You have picked some fantastic patterns :)
