Well, the wait is over, thank goodness. They were sent back last Thursday, but since I was in Peoria for the Sew Special weekend seminar, I didn't get to open the package until this last Sunday. Once they were out of the box, I must confess, I have had the jeans on everyday since! It might be time to throw them in the wash ;)
I had an appointment with my dermatologist yesterday. While I was waiting, no one was in the waiting room and there was a huge mirror, so I popped out my camera and took a picture. It's not the best picture, but at least you get an idea. I will take more as I know I will be wearing the jeans, to death! By the way, the top I'm wearing is from THIS Thrifty Thursday post. I get compliments every time I wear it.
If you've made it to this point in the post, congratulations as I have 3 magazines to give away!!! The new October/November issue is out and it is full great articles and fun projects.
There's a fabulous article on making better buttonholes.
I am going to have to give this blouse a try.
Rather than a traditional ruffle, it's actually twisted.
A free pattern download for these super cute placemats. You can find the pattern HERE.
And another free pattern download for this great bag from Tula Pink. You can find the pattern HERE.
And finally, my article on the Ginger Jeans pattern. This is really all they needed to publish...
I LOVE THIS PATTERN!!! :)
I made the high waisted version for the magazine. As you can see below, there is a lower waisted version with a straighter leg. I hope to get those made next week so I can show them to you before the sew along begins.
If you think you might like to join the sew along and make a fabulous pair of jeans, you can find the pattern HERE.
If you would like to win 1 of the 3 magazines I have to give away, just leave a message on this post. I'll announce the winner on Monday, October 10, 2016.
