Books, Books & Books.

I'm going to have a very good mail day(s) next week.

I've ordered another 7 patterns from BMV - it was such a good sale and I've also  bought an out of print patterns I've been wanting to buy for ages.  Unfortunately, my wish list seems to be getting longer all the time as I see patterns I must have on the blogs I visit. Talk about enabling!

Another enabler is  Carolyn.  I read her post about buying  Professional Sewing Secrets for Designers.  I remembered that this book had been sitting in my wish list for several years.  It's now winging it's way to me along with Vogue Sewing.

I've ordered these 2 books from The Book Depository.  It worked out about $10.00 difference in price compared to Amazon, but I figured that Book Depository are much faster with delivery times.  It takes about a week from the UK as opposed to Amazon who takes about a month to 6 weeks to deliver to Australia.

Then I decided to make a night of it and ordered another 3 books from Amazon - knowing that the delivery time is so much later, I'll have something else to look forward to next month.
I ordered:

High Style: Masterworks from the Brooklyn Museum Costume Collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Costume-Detail-Womens-Dress-1730-1930 

Wear This, Toss That!
