Yep that's the one I was looking at and hoping Funky Fabrix has one in store. I'm going to email before I make the trip there though.


Modern Retro Textiles has free postage and she is quick to send orders out if you can't get it from Funky Fabrix :D

Bump!

Anyone found any nice patterns for boys lately?

Am looking for easy basics like tops, trackies and PJs too. I think they'll be a good start in my foray back into sewing!

You want tops, skirts, and dresses to have a nice drape and not a stiff look. Consider lawn, voile, lightweight woven cottons, silk blends, some linen etc. For pants you want something thicker that will provide warmth and structure. Corduroy, twill, medium weight canvas, denim, and suiting are good choices.
