God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
Ok, so last week I asked you guys for help w/ deciding on the best, least expensive patternmaking books. I bought the book Make Your Own Dress Patterns by Adele P Margolis and eventhough the styles remind me of a late 60's, early 70's movie... I actually love that era. While I've only skimmed through the book, it has tons of different styles and info on how to alter your basic block into those styles. The one issue I have with this book is that it's not detailed enough about creating your basic block. Luckily I had Make Your Own Patterns by Rene Bergh. This book is very detailed w/ regards to creating your block patterns. This works great for me now as I am working on a very super exciting project. More to come on that later. Thanks to everyone for the comments about the book. I plan on taking a patternmaking class this Fall so I will have the Helen Armstrong book then.
