    I have recently come across an issue of Sew Beautiful issue 134, and would dearly love to make “Virginia’s Drawn Thread Dress”. I found it here in the list of back issues, but have been unable to find a link to get the the pattern instructions in the issue. I have the magazine, but just need the instructions that were on-line — or, if the whole pattern is available, I’d love to buy it !

    Thank you for your help !

    Hi Susan: The dress construction instructions can be found here: http://wwwcdn.marthapullen.com/wp-content/uploads/WendySchoenInstructions.pdf

    The pattern for this dress is actually not included in these instructions as the magazine text states. While the instructions are free, the pattern is from Wendy Schoen Designs and must be purchased from her. While I don’t see the pattern currently available on Wendy’s website, you may want to reach out to her and see if it might be available again. Her website is http://wendyschoen.com and her email is: info@wendyschoen.com. We apologize for the confusion.

    Looking for list of materials for
    ELLIE’s Gown by Amelia Johanson pages 50-52.
    My Granddaughter is expecting her own little Ellie
    in June. And they are calling her Ellie.
    I would appreciate any help.
    OMA from way down in Texas
    Have not seen anyone since 2007 due to weddings, serious illnesses, & deaths, etc.
    I noticed Classic Sewing magazine has Kathy McMakin as top person and numerous other Martha Pullen persons on board. I came for almost 10 yrs. to Arlington, Texas sewing event. Missed this past August due to herricane Harvey who went over my house in Rockport near Corpus Christi, Tx.
    Thanks for any help.C

    Thank you so much for Ellie’s material list.
    I got picture from Dublin, Ireland, which was taken from Granddaughter’s upstairs window of street/cars, lawn, & park. Area was covered in snow.
    I never thought Ireland had snow!
