But for now...let's talk patterns!
Simplicity's site has gone from bad to worse. Now, sure, it "looks" better but it isn't functional! Not even a little bit!!!!! And in their usual fashion, their patterns are up on Pattern Review and in store before they're available for viewing on the Simplicity website. Sigh.
I think this was an ok release. Nothing too exciting but I did snag a few:
I've been looking for a dress with bodice overlay and I just love this!!!
Bonus - Cup Sizing!
I think the envelope is boring but I think there's potential in this vest.
I'm not a huge fan of the Mimi G line of patterns in general but I do love jumpsuits.
This one has nice details like the back yoke and partial placket that made it a go for me.
I do LOVE CR and will buy EVERY PATTERN THAT COMES OUT!
This jacket and pants is so 70s chic!
I'm wondering if this is an update to the ever popular S2700 Amazing Fit pattern
McCall's was mostly formal wear and "meh" for me.
I do like this but I think it's because of fabric+cute model.
And I like this a lot (mainly views A and B) but feel like I shouldn't :-p
I picked up the new Simplicity patterns over a week ago in Hancock and saw the Vogues but wasn't moved. Looking at them now, I kind of like A LOT of them. First up; the patterns that may be added to the collection:
1494 is a Sandra Betzina pattern and looks *so* cool
9167 is a 'basics' kind of pattern but with all that seaming it can make a great dress!
Bonus - cup sizing!
1489 - I would totally make this for summer.
9174 - A Tilton pattern.
Not loving the top/jacket but the leggings - YES!
Other "likes" but unsure I'll buy them (that $5 Vogue price tag does rein me in!)
1481 - Really like the pleats and the shorter length.
1488 - crazy dress with included slip
1486 - Gorgeous skirt!
9166 - Simple but with nice details; yoke, darts (cup sizing!), CB seam, 2-piece sleeve...
I don't do dresses with that shirttail hem though...but this has lots of options!
9169 - Cute but again - Not quite into the style. Overlay + tunic-y length...eh.
9170 - LOVELY seaming but again not interested in the length + oversized feel
9172 - Love a skirt with some interest!
However, this reminds me of the Style Arc tulip which I bought recently
