perfect pattern parcel victory and kitschycoo

My mission was to make all of these patterns for the first parcel. I have 4 done, one left after today.
Here's the Lady Skater and the Ava Peplum!

Sleeveless #ladyskater from the @patternparcel  this pattern is by @kitschycoo  and it is awesome. Now to sew up some warm weather??

The Lady Skater is a pattern we should all have.  Easy to customize, flattering to wear.I decided that I wanted it in a split, a faux top and skirt.I especially love that I have black and white tights and I call those my Alice in wonderland shoes.  Now I have a whole modern Alice outfit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahhhh the peplum. Very much in style, really a classic piece. I have always wanted to wear peplums, but then, I never seem to. Now I will!!

The Ava peplum blouse by victory patterns. This pattern is a part of the #perfectpatterparcel get yours while you can! @patternparcel

 My "v" point on the Ava peplum is a little more rounded than the pattern should execute, but I had a struggle with the voile and meshy lace.  They just did not want to turn on a dime, they wanted to navigate it in an arc. But there is no pulling, the darts fit perfect and the zip is easy to install. My feathers go every which way. I had purchased this beautiful  voile from Anna Marie Horner at Modern Domestic off Alberta in Portland. I promptly cut it out for something else when I got home.  That item was never made...  I managed to repurpose those cut pieces in my size (4). Hurray!

Both patterns are excellently written, easy to execute, and fit true to size.  So far, I am creating a beautiful new wardrobe with very different pieces. Get your parcel before its all done!

PS if you are in ptown, be sure to check out Modern Domestic.  A truly great sewing studio and supply shop. Be sure to get food next door at the tin shed.  you wont be disappointed! Just walking along Alberta is a fun day in itself.
