Yeah, aside from costumes, the Simplicity release was pretty weak. And as per the usual, they are not up on their site yet. New Look's fall release is nearly entirely composed of re-released patterns. Some of them aren't even discontinued yet under their original number! Oy!
Simplicity patterns are up on Pattern Review. The only two I really liked were:
1018: A great knit dress
SO MUCH movement!
1012: A 60s vintage pattern
I have an altered Lekala pattern that I bought and 'hacked' after deciding I liked the Papercut Watson, but not enough to spend that kind of money on it. Also, I prefer the Papercut capelet, how it is integrated into the seam at the front
7256 is a little too much for me but man that would make an awesome dress coat!
7262 is a Khaliah Ali pattern. Very cute. And it reminds me of my Burda coat with the crazy sleeve!
7242 looks awesome! I doubt I will make a fall maxi dress but it's gorgeous
7244 works without looking too young. There was another McCall's where it looked a bit too "ruffly" on the bottom. This is subtle...
7241 I don't normally do a dropped waist but this one with the pleating is calling me. Plus it has cup sizing!!!!
7242; I like.
7245: I don't love their fabric choice and the sleeves are a bit much for everyday. But I am loving this dress. The little inset at front? Swoon.
7259: Drama in a good way!
7258: I had a pouty moment when I saw this was only in plus sizes.
7254?! ALL the yeses!!!!
7247 has had several similar-looking predecessors...
7251 I almost missed due to hideous fabric. This top is pretty awesome.
I predict 7249 being popular
7261; I don't even sew activewear but this pattern makes me want to!!!
