Would like to sew

Some of the sewing patterns I've got my eye on right now. Chances are, I'll buy the patterns, get halfway though them and then decide I don't want them anymore. I'm talking to you blouse-without-sleeves-yet and summer-dress-who-just-needs-a-zip.

Ooh so Mad Men. I'd look just like Joan in this. Although my bf thinks I'd look more like Pete Campbell's wife, Trudie. We call her Annie. And if Peggy is more your style this is the pattern for you. I really like these reproductions of vintage patterns since the problem I find with vintage patterns is they sometimes fit funny, don't come in multisize and all the instructions are in inches.

This one is McCalls M6328. I love all four variations of these shorts, I'd make them all. I've even chosen which floral print fabric I'm going to make these in. I just wish it wasn't so cold so I could wear them straight away. Oh and I've just noticed... I already own the pattern for the top that the eyebrow model is wearing.

I like Burda patterns, since they are a German brand the sizing tends to be closer to UK woman's dress sizes. This vintage repo one is amazing. I also would like hair like in the drawing.

I also love this playsuit and I'd totally make it in red gingham too. It's got cute shorts and top too.
