It all started innocently enough with the purchase of the Rowenta steam generator iron. Then I needed to get a gift for a prospective customer, so I got him a replica of the NASCAR my company sponsors (he's a big fan of NASCAR racing).
Then patterns. I had a particular set of Calvin Klein blouses in mind. I already have it, but I bought it a long time ago--before I knew to buy the pattern by the upper bust or shoulder width (depending on what method you use). I know I could, in theory, scale it down. But I know myself. It's not something I'd ever actually do, or it would have been done by now.
I haven't gotten that one yet (waiting for an 8 or 10 to turn up). But, 2 other Calvins and a Ralph Lauren have found their way to Casa Flan.
And now, Threads. Yep, the holy grail of Threads Magazine fanatics: to have a complete set. I'm very close thanks to some recent wins.
I think the next step will be to sell some things...
