Help needed re Newlook Pattern 6339

Posted on March 23, 2017 at 6:26pm 5 Comments

Hello all,  

It has been years since I have looked into this site and I must apologize for not visiting more often.  Looks like I'll have to update my photo too!

I am trying to sew together Newlook pattern 6339 but the instruction are not clear and was wondering if anyone can give me a little advise/help?

When I put the pattern parts 1 and 2 together the center fronts do not line up - the same for parts 3 and 4 - which is the back of A or B..This should be easy…

Hi Chris,

I'm sure she'll get it. You can't send a message from my inbox anyways. When it says inbox on my page, it's your inbox not mine. Does that make sense?

My two boys are the only grandchildren on both sides and there will be no more since everyone else is past the age (so am I now). Those boys do get spoiled, especially at Christmas!

Can you send Christina a message and let her know you will wait a few more days? Thanks!

The picture came through perfectly! They look healthy and lovely! Are they your first grandchildren?

Yes, I agree that you should wait a few more days. After all, everyone has until next Thursday to get the packages off, so you may yet hear from her. I hope you do. If I didn't already have two swap partners I would swap with you!

Chris, have you heard anything from Christina yet?

The cycle of life! Congratulations regarding the grand-daughters and condolances for your mother-in-law. I will let you know when I hear from Christina.

I will contact her. If we still haven't heard from her by Saturday we will figure out a plan.

Hi Chris, not going in the swap. Busy sewing 2 x flowergirls dresses for friends daughter, and I'm not even invited to the wedding!! However, it is in Cairns so the air fare saved will buy a lot of fabric!! Have just finished the 2 quilts for the Victorian Bushfire victims. Also attending machine embroidery classes with my sister and our Brother sewing machines. We are learning heaps from our tutor and it makes such a difference to really start to understand your embroidery machine. Did we discuss machines - I'm a Pfaff tragic, classical music buff, married with 3 grown children and 6 grandchildren. My son just paid us a surprise visit from Burleigh Heads, Qld, on his motor bike so I'm looking forward to hearing that he has arrived safely back home today. My two daughters live here in Adelaide. Talk later, best regards, Helen

Hi Chris, thanks for the reply. Love Perth and considered visiting for the Aust. Sewing Guild's convention there later this year but decided against it as I have relatives and friends in Brisbane who need visits. The budget does not run to both. I'm sewing two quilts for the Vic Bushfire victims and am about to make another garment from vogue 8486, very easy and flattering to the full bust. Wish I was as tall as the sketch on the envelope tho! First one I made is exactly view A, black and white print, sleeveless, love it. As seen in Stitches too! Enjoy Brisbane, talk later, Helen
