Hello, my lovely friends! Thank you all so much for your brimming enthusiasm around the Pattern Pyramid. I’m thrilled to bits and only sorry I couldn’t properly engage with comments on the launch post. I was otherwise occupied, cheering my boyfriend over the Londre-Paris finish line for the third year running. Here he is, swigging some much deserved champagne at the end:
Whilst in Paris, it would have been very, very rude of me not to visit the fabric district in Montmartre. (My first visit documented here.) So visit it, I did!
I was shopping with two family members, both of whom joined in with enthusiasm! Here we are outside probably our favourite shop, Les Coupons de Saint Pierre. They sell pre-cut three metre lengths for five euros a pop. Happy days!
You can even buy wool in the fabric district:
The below is my new find, the store Sacres Coupon. I nearly spent £45 here on some bone-coloured broderie anglaise until I remembered that my stash box is overflowing with fabrics for summer dresses:
Whilst in Paris, I also indulged in some crochet and biere blanche:
And adapted art galleries into sewing snap backdrops:

Oh, I almost forgot! What fabric did I buy?
Eight metres in total, for 22 Euros. ‘Bargainacious!’ as I chirruped during the shopping trip.
What next, now that I’m back home – again? I am determined to finish work on my Simplicity 4934 vintage pattern. Correctomundo! I have indeed been distracted from this project by a return to work, summer makes and trips to Paris. What have you been up to? Any distractions?
