Thanks Paco!

I was pretty excited to see that Paco Peralta was offering a free pattern for a draped top to anyone who ordered from him in November.  I placed an order at his Etsy store on November 1 and my package arrived today.

I ordered the cape and skirt set.

I received the draped top, as promised.

But to my surprise, the package also contained ...

The portefeuille skirt.

He wrote "It is my pleasure - I'm sure you will make a beautiful version of this skirt."  Paco, I hope I can live up to your expectations!


  1. Thanks for alerting me to this beautiful Etsy shop. I LOVE the cape - but the price for the pattern plus shipping is really at the outer edge. I'm intrigued to hear about how you find the sewing of it. (Who knows, I may cave :-))

  2. ohhh shooot, you bought for your self, what I had bought you for Christmas :-(( I bought you the skirt pattern... but I will find something else to give you then. good choice of patterns !!

  3. I know Paco's expectations of beautiful garments will be met, Kay!

  4. Repeat: I'm sure you will make a beautiful garments !!

  5. It was as if Paco designed these with you in mind! I'm excited to see how they will turn out in your hands - do you have fabric planned yet? Sue Anfang
