A Great ASG Haul

The Trading Post at ASG was great last night! Here's what I got:


Yeah, that's right. Four Loes Hinse patterns! One minor disappointment, the pattern for the Basic Pleat Front Pant was incomplete. However, I already have other tried and true patterns for pull on pants as well as a couple other Loes Hinse pant patterns, so I'm ok with it. On the other hand, the patterns for the Boot Skirt, the Wrap Skirt, and the Tank Dress Group were unused and factory folded.

I also picked up some navy fabric with woven stripes. I think it might be home dec cotton. My plan is to treat it like denim and make a pencil skirt with it. The color in the picture above is more accurate, but the washed out picture below shows the detail better. The front side is a tone on tone stripe, while the other side has gold stripes.

My preference is the tone on tone side, but perhaps the gold side could be brought in as an accent somehow. Plenty of time to figure it out.

This sounds like fun! Is this "Trading Post" a NG event or a chapter one? How does it work?
