Mother's Day Silhouette Patterns

Well yesterday was a hellatious day of call, so I didn't get to finish what I was working on. So I'll show you the 4 patterns I got from Silhouette's Mother's Day sale. First is a halter top with built-in bra. I would've made this last weekend, but you have to have bra cups - cool! You can't tell a whole lot from the picture on the front with a lot of these patterns, I've noticed.
This is a knit shirt with "smocking" that a couple of people on PR have made.
I looked at this one and thought, "Why the heck did I buy this shirt pattern - ugh." Then I remembered it's actually a yoga pant pattern.
And this is the style of my favorite shirts from Dress Barn - knit with plackety-thing at the collar.
Also, I got sucked into a subscription for Sew News. I got the free issue, and there was actually an article about modifying a pattern I was planning to make up! What are the odds?! Another sign from God!
Hopefully I'll finish the Ann's Top I'm working on in the white gauzy knit from Chicago - we'll see. I have high hopes for it...

Great Mom'sDay present! Have fun with those patterns. Patterns, I have found, are our "dreams".

Ooh, I can't wait to see how you like Silhoutte! I've been thinking about getting their wrap dress. No FBA is a seriously big (haha) advantage around here.

Absolutely right, Gwen. I can look at patterns for hours.

And KID, if I could work out my armscye problems I'd be delighted. I'll post pics tomorrow...
