Taking the plunge (into buying patterns)

The thought of buying patterns for sewing never really appealed to me– it’s hard to envision something beautiful and wearable based on the typically uninspiring images on the packaging. Moreover, most patterns worth using have daunting instructions–as if written in another language! But suddenly I feel less threatened now that I’ve made a couple items using patterns –without much pain and frustration. And– for $5 a piece— I’ll take the risk! Here are some patterns I’ve ordered from Vogue Patterns. I realize I got really lucky and came across a huge sale– I’ll take it as a positive sign for things to come.
