Once upon a time, I ran into DIYcouture–I love running into previously unknown pattern/sewing/design companies–and fell in love with the Wrap Top, pictured (in a number of variations) above. I had even decided what fabric and notions I would use when making this top, which is rare for me.
All was fair in the kingdom, except for the fact that the pattern/e-book for the Wrap Top was “coming soon”. But I’m patient, so I waited for soon. That was a year ago.
And let me say that I’m a huge fan of procrastination . . . HUGE. Here’s a secret: this here is last night’s post in the NaNoWriMo effort.
However, I’m not a fan of procrastination when it gets in the way of my hopes and dreams. I’m a hypocrite . . . like you’ve never seen one of those before.
What makes this waiting harder is the simplicity of the pattern. If I applied myself, could I draft this myself? Is the e-book worth the wait??
Also, this pattern is from their first collection. They now have a second collection and a hard copy book for it. Which . . . does this mean we’ve given up on the first collection’s e-book format or what? Maybe change “coming soon” to “coming never” or “skip to side B” or “gone ’til November” (I got these all day).
Hopefully everyone’s okay over there. I would feel really crummy if a life event of some sort was at the root of this. Yeaaaaah, I’ll stop here just in case.
I’ll keep regularly checking their website for that e-book, waiting the seconds it takes for that webpage to load like a ticket holder waiting for a lottery drawing. I can think of worse ways to pass my time.
