Better Late Than Never

Thanks to my dear friend Liise, who lives in Spain, I got my hands on my first Patrones magazine last summer. And some may recall that I made a pair of shorts from there and was very happy with the fit.

I talked her into getting some of the magazines for me, and the good news is that I will meet her again this Christmas, since she will spend the holidays in Estonia. I already know that I will be getting at least three issues from autumn, a special party season issue among them. I cannot wait! I am so impatient that I have been searching the internet for the issues and the patterns in them and as I was doing so, I found a Patrones from spring that includes some patterns that I couldn´t resist.

After digging deep for the best seller in terms of shipping cost and prices, I finally decided to make my first order from www.sewingpatterns.eu. They sell some past issues of Patrones at slightly discounted prices (still more than in Spain) but because they charge the same amount for each magazine (if you order 2 copies, the shipping doubles as well), I behaved and ordered only one magazine.

It is Patrones No 316. It is old news because I think it came out in June, but I am very happy I got it, as it includes some really cute jumpsuit patterns, that I hope I will be able to make for the next season.

My favourite out of the five models is the black one with ruffles, although the beige ones are also quite nice.

The order arrived within a few days and I think they only ship on workdays, because I ordered during the weekend and got the shipping confirmation on Monday.

There are some other things I have ordered lately (patterns and two books), but more on that when they arrive. I also managed to finish my party dress for the Christmas party with colleagues this Wednesday. If someone is willing to take the photos at the party, I can post it very soon!
