well look what the cat dragged in...



if you happen to pick up the august/september issue of vogue patterns you may see a familiar face on page 9!

robin denning, of a little sewing, and the new editor of vogue patterns contacted me awhile ago to see if i would like to have my rachel comey for vogue patterns top, v1247 (click here for the original post), featured in the upcoming edition's "what are you sewing". and boy did i ever!! this was such exciting news to me - i was completely floored! and of course said yes in all sorts of dorkasaurus ways! 

well a good bit of time passed and my very own issue arrived in the mail and not only did i get the thrill of seeing this here mug in print - but i had the added thrill of seeing that i was also the winner of a one-year subscription to vogue patterns! yes please!!!! doublefistpumphighfivekaratechopkick!!!!

i am so excited for robin and her new career venture, not only because i think she'll be fantastic, but also because its just so very inspiring to see someone's passion and love of sewing move from the basement or extra bedroom or whatever corner of the house its shoved, and come out into the limelight and take center stage. 

so congratulations again, robin! and thank you so much for thinking of me. i am delighted to be a part of the magazine, and can't wait to get my paws on upcoming issues of vogue patterns!!

oh and p.s - for those of you that asked about my shoes in the last post - they are by anniel. i picked mine up on sale from my favorite store in houston, leap, but according to polyvore they seem to be sold at various locations across the internet. it looks like the prices are all over the place right now, so you could probably pick them up for a good deal if you do a bit of hunting! good luck!

  9. Congratulations! The top is fantastic! Plain color emphasizes a unique design so beautifully! Unfortunately for the original pattern, the cover picture does not enhance this absolutely classy design in flattering fabric. You nailed it! Enjoy one year subscription!

  16. Of course you're in Vogue Patterns. You should be in every damn issue, mama. Congrats! One question since I've never actually bought an issue - does it include patterns or is it just a magazine/catalogue?

  21. oh YES. I'm sure this is just the first of many appearances. :)
    I bought this pattern a while ago but completely forgot about it 'till now... your creme crepe de chine is about a  million times more flattering than the cover sample!
