NAME THAT PATTERN -- High Fashion Edition!

Friends, what better way to welcome the weekend than with a spanking new edition of NAME THAT PATTERN!

Today's game has a theme you couture fans are going to love -- high fashion.  I've found some chic-er than chic patterns and I hope they inspire you as they do me.

For those who've never played NAME THAT PATTERN before, the rules are easy: I post photos of  sewing patterns I've found online, and YOU have to give them names.  You can name all the patterns below, or just the ones that speak to you. 

This time we have some amazing prizes in store, including a week-long, all-expenses-paid vacation at Petticoat Junction's own Shady Rest Hotel!

With no further delay, here's Pattern #1:

Warmed up yet? (he he)  Here's Pattern #2!

But wait, there's more -- it's Pattern #3 (Vogue 2012)!

We're nearly done -- here's Pattern #4!

And finally, our special BONUS pattern -- this time, two!

Pattern #5!

...and, for the boys, Pattern #6!

Friends, thank you so much for playing NAME THAT PATTERN -- High Fashion Edition, and remember: you have to be in it to win it!

Have a great day, everybody!
