NAME THAT PATTERN -- Comeback Edition!


Readers, it was time.

The sewing blogosphere hasn't been the same since I retired NAME THAT PATTERN, the Internet's favorite sewing pattern game.  So I'm delighted to report that we're back, and with straighter teeth, fuller lips, and a noticeably firmer jawline!

After our long absence, perhaps you've forgotten how to play NAME THAT PATTERN.  It's simple: I post photos of patterns I've found online, and you give them funny names.  As always, we have some fabulous prizes for our winners, including a highly collectible box of Trump steaks only slightly past their expiration date.

With no further delay, let's get started.  Presenting PATTERN #1!


At a loss?  Re-center yourself with PATTERN #2!


Warming up?  Please give a big MPB welcome to PATTERN #3!


But wait -- there's more.  Here's PATTERN #4!


Alas, our Comeback edition is drawing to a close.  Let's hear it for PATTERN #5!


NOT SO FAST --  we still have our BONUS PATTERN, for NAME THAT PATTERN enthusiasts clamoring for more.  It's PATTERN #6!


Friends, I hope you've enjoyed this very special Comeback edition of NAME THAT PATTERN.  As you know, you can name any or all of the above patterns, though only those naming ALL six patterns will be eligible for those yummy steaks.  Naturally, I'll be playing, as will Michael, and who knows -- maybe even Willy and Freddy!

Are you ready?  Then on your marks, get set, NAME THAT PATTERN!

1920's Butterick Men's Shirt Pattern - The Muslin


Yesterday I realized that I'd traced the wrong size for the Japanese shirt pattern I'd intended to make:  I'd traced a Medium but I actually needed a Large.

You can get a (much) better look at them here.  (And what luck to find a mustard-colored dumpster to coordinate with them -- what are the odds?)

Readers, do you remember the African wax prints above, which I purchased more than a year ago in the Garment District, along with a third, which I turned into the shirt below (one of my summer favorites)?
