Happy Thursday! Looking forward to the weekend and maybe getting some time to myself. My yard is a disaster zone. If I can't clean it up this weekend I will have to put out warning signs, or at least make sure people don't think my house is an abandoned lot.

Well not terribly "new" but wanted to post this showy New Look 6151 Theatrical Cape & Skirt 1980's as always a bold look for this pattern maker. They used to be made in England. I think Simplicity bought them out but I'm not sure - too bad they don't still make them. They are quite unique and very sought after. Here are more New Look Sewing Patterns
