Back to basics and MMM'12 pledge

…and I don't mean sewing tops and pants, I am talking- returning to PatternMaster Boutique from!

I firsrt purchased it around 2007, but I switched from PC to Mac since and as this software is only PC compatible, I had never really discovered it true potential.

Today though, I have installed a Virtual Box software and put Windows Vista running on it- on my Mac, simultaneously with my Mac's screen and apps! And i have installed the PMB and it is running! Bliss.

Now, there is a long way to go to recall all the editing tools and options in their Pattern editor- but, hopefully the result will be worth it! I might even start designing my own downloadable patterns to offer my readers some day (Oops, my big dream revealed!!! ))))

And last, but not least: I too join the oh-so-contagious sewing bloggers pledge:

"I, Juliette of Sewing and Style Den, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '12. I pledge to wear a self-made item of clothing for at least four days a week for the duration of May 2012."

Actually, that can apply to all month of the year- I do wear self made clothes a lot- that is mainly why I try to make wearable clothes and don't do vintage. So I am in! I don't take pics of what I wear every day, but everything I have made ( and still own ) will be used.

And to finish up- here's Harry, contemplating if a modeling career is really for him:

Not bad! Not bad at all!!!!
