You picked some awesome patterns. I can't wait to see what you accomplish.

Such great choices.

Barbara said...

Wow, I am so not capable of making a list...There are so many things to sew out there! :-)The UFO pile is getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger.
Nice pattern choices!
What are clamdiggers? Why are they called so?

How fun! I'm looking forward to seeing it come together.

Looks like a great list! I love bikinis and have never attempted one... look forward to seeing yours. :)

Marybeth said...

Great choices! I love the Vogue dress!!!

Angela said...

Thanks, ladies! I need to start tracing!

@Barbara - Clamdiggers refer to pants that are between knee and ankle length. I think it comes from having to roll-up your pants to dig for clams in the ocean. I did that once in Korea.

@meli88a - I've never made a swimsuit either. I have all the supplies and the pattern traced, but I'm a little nervous. :)

Fabulous list, so many great patterns! And that Vogue dress, wow. I'm terrified of attempting the swimsuit so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on your progress. :)

Thanks, Ali!
