Overall it looks like an ok release - only a few patterns I really love, a few more where I am on the fence, a lot that I can't decide if I like it or hate it, and a few that made me laugh out loud. It might not all be beautiful, but at least it isn't boring.
Ok, so here are the ones that I really loved:
|V1302 - a Kay Unger design.|
|Here is the line drawing - devine!|
|V1303 - another Kay Unger|
|1303 line drawing - I really like it, but is it too similar to some of my other patterns?|
|V8808 - A Very Easy Vogue Pattern.|
And this Patrones pattern:
|Patrones No. 295 style #41|
Both of which I am more likely to use than a Vogue.
Ok, moving on, here are some new vintage (ha!) patterns:
Also, while I have more than enough Burda magazine patterns in the style of a Channel jacket, there is a new Claire Shaeffer pattern, which might be good to buy for the instructions, if not for the pattern itself:
|V8804 - What is up with the gloves and helmat?|
|Close up of the details - it might be worth it for the detailed instructions|
|V8805 - Hmmm, where have I seen these colors before?|
I am on the fence with these following patterns:
|V1304 - a Lialia pattern - the top is LOW, but I like the shoulder/sleeves|
|Not sure how I feel about the open back...|
|V1305 - another Lialia. Do I love it? Do I hate it? I just don't know...|
|V1300 - The new DKNY sack dress. After my experience with the last one I WON'T be getting it. |
But I do expect it to be the new popular pattern on Pattern Review...
|V1301 - A KOOS Couture Pattern. When I saw this picture I thought it was ok...|
|But the 1301 line drawing confused me muchly...|
|Apparently 1301 can be worn many ways?|
|Many many ways?|
|V1308 - A DKNY Jumpsuit. After looking at that behind who cares what the front does?|
|V1307 - Today's Fit Sandra Betzina pants. I think I snorted up some water when I saw these.|
Oh, and the Vogue website is also having a $3.99 sale but today is the last day! I will be waiting for my local Joann/Hancock to have a sale, but that shouldn't stop the rest of you!
