Feelin' Hot, Hot, Hot!

Woohoo! The Hot Patterns arrived today! I wanted them all but only ordered the Cosmopolitan Dress:

and Flippy Skirt:

for now. I have *cough, cough* several HPs in progress and really, really need to finish my UFOs before buying too many more patterns. Couldn't resist these two though! If only I could look like Beyonce wearing the Cosmopolitan dress....

I knew this was a must-have after seeing it on Erica B.'s blog, Hook & Needles.

Gigi, you picked two great new styles from HP. Selfishly, I hope you make up the Cosmopolitan dress first (and soon), because I've been eyeing it myself but haven't yet ordered. I'd love to hear how it goes together before taking the plunge. It sure is lovely.

What fabric will you be using for the dress? I fell in love with it after also seeing it in Erica B's blog.

The HP Cosmopolitan Dress looks better made up than the pattern envelope, judging from the dress Beyonce is wearing. Good to see her wearing a real dress for a change. I sometimes question her taste. I never question yours. Can't wait to see what you do with this pattern.

Awesome. I've been looking forward to getting my hands on that dress. I hope my copy isn't far behind yours....

Dear Gigi,

Please, please show us your lovely garments when you get them finished. I have been seriously eyeballing the same skirt pattern too. I am absolutely loving the Hot Patterns line, and want to see more of them made up. Of course the more I see the more I want more of their patterns :D

Do you have any ideas on what you might make the dress out of?

Hot Patterns have made me actually feel like one of the "cool kids" again, even if I do sew (I got teased a lot growing up about that). I feel like I am special because I can make a designer knock-off and I can make it look good.

Thanks again for showing all your lovely work and offering inspiration to all of us.
