Patterns I Will Never Sew

Everyone usually blogs about the patterns they love, so for a change of pace, I'm going to show you the new patterns I will never sew.

The first one reminds me of the early 90's. I love Bananarama as much as the next 40 yr old, but I don't want to go there again. Ever.

What the heck is this? Is it really in style? My great grandmother used to wear stuff like this. Only she called it a house coat*. She also used to slug down a case of Hamm's beer every day while wearing it. Needless to say, this pattern does not appeal to me. And look at the model wearing it. Does she look happy? I rest my case.

I didn't like the song Walk Like An Egyptian the first time it came out, so I don't want to revive it (or relive it) with these pants.

This next one looks horribly sloppy to me. And home made. Ew.

That's my list. What do you think?

*I know a caftan is not the same as a house coat, but my great grandmother obviously didn't know that. It was probably all the beer!

My mother in law called those caftans, and she has given them to me as gifts. Twice. I think she didn't want me to have any additional grandchildren. One was such an affront to me that I cut it up and used the fabric in a landscape quilt. It's still unfinished, but you'll know it when you see it, if I ever publish a photo of it.

Those are very funny! Not very attractive styles.

Congrats on winning the Hungarian Blue I designed. I would be honored to feature what you create on my blog if you like. Happy Sewing!

That's just one big pile of 80's nightmare! They can't possibly think anybody would make those NOW!

Thanks for the good laugh!
