Okay they aren't all a snoozefest...but kind of blah, bleh, meh.
I always get a little annoyed when I realize they are just rehashing old patterns. And then someone pointed out how the Butterick See & Sew patterns are only $2.99 so it's a great way to snag some of the designs. And then I feel bad because we in the US are really spoiled with our $.99 and $1.99 pattern sales (and $1.40) so $2.99 might be a deal. But I get annoyed again when they're introducing a "new" pattern with an old one, and it's across pattern lines.
"New" Butterick 5977
"Old" McCall's 6519
Bonus with the dress and skirt!
"New" Butterick 5975
"Old" McCall's 6711
Bonus skirt and pants...and shirt! Which, why not include the shirt in the 'new' pattern? It's just the dress, shortened!
Ahhhh. Anyway, My picks of this release:
LOVE this jacket and want to try color-blocking camel body and black sleeves. What's up with the half colored collar?! 5994
5998 has beautiful lines
5995, I only like the jacket. Well and the skirt...but that skirt exists in 237 patterns already.
5982 Love the shape...but I'd never wear a skirt that full anywhere...
5976 - I sort of like this. But then I am like...hmmm...
And, what in the sam hell!?! 5986
