    I would like to make the Sencha blouse. I am a plus pear, and would like to see more patterns for this figure. Nevertheless, I enjoy looking at romantic patterns, even if I cannot wear them.

    I’d probably go for Clover (the trousers) because I’m a novice and always go for dresses – trousers seem wayyyy to complicated….but I know they aren’t – but I’m too scared to buy a pattern and give them a whirl. A trouser pattern would give me the shove I need to go into this new realm of stitching!

    I have most of these—except this wrap dress—so I would for sure get that! I have the book. BUT—my daughter, who lives far from me—I would give her the book, she is just learning to sew.

    I would like to try the Jasmine blouse vintage sewing pattern. This one is so darling. Great for 1930’s and 1940’s look. I like it! :)

    The peony or – blast from the past – the rooibos. With postage all the way to NZ I lust after Colette patterns but can never afford to buy them!

    although the Macaron and Eclair dresses have both been long time favourites of mine, I would spend the 25 $ on the Violet blouse and the Ginger skirt, as they would be used more, being the perfect wardrobe stables and all!

    I think I’d go with Crepe — I haven’t sewn garments for quite a while and it would be a good way to ease back into it.
