Beading, cross-stitch, quilting, more beading... and then what did I see tucked away in the corner? A burdastyle mag. Having not read one before I opened it up to see what I could get for the 'import' cost of having it available in Australia.
I didn't expect much to be honest as I'd heard that the patterns and instructions could be quite confusing and I'm still pretty much a novice at sewing, but there were a couple of items that caught my eye, mainly the kiddie clothing and a summer dress.
A few more page flips though and I knew I had to buy it. I was super excited to see that this was the very issue I had thought about ordering in from overseas because of the One Dot Dress pattern that AllisonC had reviewed.
Other reviews seem quite positive as well.
So now I've got the pattern, got some jersey in my stash, read the instructions and once I figure out what the Australian version of 'Vilene bias tape' is, I'll be set to go!
