The great Pavlova Shipping Season has commenced! The printer shipped our lovely Pavlova patterns to me in Brisbane via dhl, and to Leila (Cake, NH) in Indy via UPS. Leila in the USA should have hers on Thursday morning, but mine have arrived already and it’s only Thursday afternoon!
I know. It’s mad. Best to just lean into the International Dateline Weirdness and enjoy it. Also weird: the patterns arrived 10,000 miles away in Australia sooner than they did in Indianapolis. From Kansas.
Cake’s Australia/New Zealand orders are nestled snugly in their shipping envelopes, most of them with postage already attached and ready to slip into your postboxes. Friday is our drop day! We’ll be posting all current Pavlova Wrap Top & Skirt patterns purchased via Etsy, and sending out our pre-order shipments to Cake Retailers.
That’s Friday world wide. Tomorrow, if you’re in the Antipodes. Day after tomorrow if you’re in the US. I know. Weird. Let’s just focus on Friday.
We’ll track the progress of our patterns as they arrive and y’all tweet or email or convo me to let me know you got them. I can’t help it, and the map is right there on the wall already…
Leila and I are especially keen to race to the Great White North, Canada. It seems that patterns from the US to Canada take a looooong time, and I have an idea the post might work more smoothly from one commonwealth country to another.
I have a nice schedule of posts lined up regarding sizing, length alteration guides, grainline blasphemy, light drafting exercises, and of course our appliqued birds! (Oh yes, and my invisible zipper lesson for complete beginners.) I’ll post the table of contents for the week’s posts tomorrow, and also the links to sign up for the Pavlova Sewalong!
Side note: Would a flickr tutorial before the sewalong be useful? I know some readers wanted to join in with Tira, but weren’t sure how to. Let me know in comments.
Pdf patterns: Once the Pavlova pattern begins arriving in Europe, I’ll launch the pdfs. I separated the top from the skirt, and the tops are further separated with 30-35 together and 40-45 together. If you just want the pocket, it’s already available.
