Happy Stuff from Cutting Line Designs

Three patterns remain on sale this week, and examples of all are pictured on the Home Page.  But I wanted to show you two of Louise's shirts made with the Take Me Anywhere pattern.

Here are View A and View B:

     Take Me Anywhere View A    Take Me Anywhere View B

You can play around with both of these.  View A is first.  Use one or both of the collar bands.  Make one band or both out of different fabrics.  Use the hidden button placket or skip it and button through left over right.  (Remember, buttons can be like jewelry!)  Look carefully to see the topstitching around the hidden pocket--which you can include or not.  Make it more than once, creating different looks with you fabric choice.

View B is fun to put together.  The scrunch collar is soft, but you can make it shorter if you want. The shirt is based on 2 different fabrics for the asymmetrical left and right.  The vertical band is made of a third fabric--choose something special (one of those little treasures you've been saving?).  Then doll up that little band with some special buttons, maybe using simple buttons for the center front. 

Great fabric candidates for Take Me Anywhere:

         linen/cotton from Japan       linen/cotton from Japan

         linen/cotton from Japan       linen/cotton from Japan

         linen/cotton from Japan       cotton from Japan

So now--------Yeah!!!  Whoopee!!!  Hurray!!!  Two more boxes of designer cuts arrived, and we have scrambled to get them onto the website.  These go fast, so get to the Ends of Bolts page quickly and choose your favorites.

There are silks, linens, vintage Marimekko, rayons, beautiful prints.  Louise and I had a hard time--we had to keep reminding each other that these needed to be on the website and not on our own shelves.  SIGHHHH. 

Be quick to get your choices.  Do you want something pretty to wear around the house?  Something special for the holidays?  Something distinctive for travel, work, or volunteering?  Or something that cheers up that day-to-day wardrobe?  I hope you find just the right thing.
