Whodda guessed there was a BIG difference between a PDF 1.7 and a PDF 1.8? Well, there is. At least concerning the printing of FELIZ there is. Long story short: FELIZ is printed. It's in English. It's here in my garage. Send me an email if you'd like to place an order. I'm sorry about the wait. Like I said, PDF Schmee Dee Eff 1.7...Schmee Dee Eff 1.8... FELIZ has been very popular in Europe. I'm really honored and humbled to know that this dress has been sewn to be flower girl dresses and many first-day-of-school dresses ("first day of school" is kind of a big deal in Germany).
In addition, behind a surfboard and a bike I also have a box of SOLANA trouser patterns in English in the garage. That's right, SOLANA. For a long time, I did not want to print this pattern in the United States. I'm not an IP attorney, so the understandings and assumptions I've been using to protect my designs may be right and they may be wrong. So I don't want to explain my reasoning. Anyway, I understand my designs have a little more protection in Europe. I could be wrong, but that's how I'm rolling these days. To really keep an idea protected on this side of the pond, a patent is helpful. So I've applied for patents on a few designs, including SOLANA (patent pending--I can write that now). Let's see how much luck I have there.
As it is, I have SOLANA (patent pending) in English for sale. I really like this design. When I look at SOLANA (patent pending), the words of dear Toni come to mind, "When I first opened that pattern, I said, 'Nancy is a crackhead.'" Now, to say that like Toni, say "crack-haid". But she likes the pattern and has made some really great SOLANA (patent pending) trousers. Better than mine, for sure! SOLANA (patent pending) is different from any sewing pattern you've ever seen, but that's what makes these one-of-a-kind trousers. Swoopy, swishy, curvy, crazy: Not for shrinking violets. Little tip: Use twills or cords on this one, something with a warp face weave to ease you around all those curves. Percales and quilting cottons tend to pucker in those upper curves.
