I'm sure you know that like all the new fall patterns are out - Simplicity, Butterick, New Look, Burda and McCall's. Way too many to fully review!!!
You saw that I snatched up a bunch of new Simplicity patterns; but there's MORE.
From the Butterick Fall lineup (not much to be desired, IMO); I picked up 6100 (tops) and 6104 (jackets)
From New Look; I picked up 6298 and 6301
And from Burda, 6839 and 6878. The Burda envelope patterns were in stock at Hancock and they had the catalog...but the patterns STILL aren't up on the Simplicity website yet! I mean, SERIOUSLY!
In the month of August, I've added a mind-boggling 45 patterns to my pattern stash. oops. 5 of those were free though!!! :-) And two were picked up for someone else because I was there and in case they replied "YES PLEASE!"; which they did not. It's okay...
VERY interestingly; 24 of those new additions were Simplicity patterns. I seriously need not another pattern. Not. Another. One.
McCall's were released and were primarily a snoozefest for me. I feel like these 2 are must haves (ignore the statement above about no more patterns, please)
7026. I mean. LOOK at it.
7013. I have to buy this. I have little girls that need cute jackets. No really, I do!
I like this vest (only views C & D) but...bewbs...so we'll see.
Plans. Yes, I have made humungous sewing plans for fall. It's not a mini wardrobe or a pac; just things I need in fabrics I like. I am trying to ensure that everything matches at least 2 things that I already have - e.g.; a top needs to match at least 2 pairs of pants. And a pant needs to match at least 2 tops.
I swear the cape is much cuter than this horrid pattern photo. I swear.
Because I want to look cool like her.
Because this jacket rocks (shortest peplum, no lapels with this fabric)
(charcoal grey, a tan heather, olive)
2 pants in the TNT S2700, 1 in the Vogue. Maybe 2 if my 'wearable muslin' turns out.
A few woven tops; TNT S2255 in white and a light print (cut out this morning).
Black tie neck shirt and plaid casual shirt.
A few knit tops; S2369 in a light sweater knit. Vogue cowl neck in jersey and S1916 in ITY(?)
Of course, these plans could be changed at anytime because of "Oooh, shiny!" or...
EEEEEEEK! We will see :-)
