In the meantime, it seems that Simplicity has released their latest collection of new patterns. Overall I think this is an average collection. There isn't really anything so fabulous I am dying to make it... actually most of the patterns are kind of boring. But there are a few I might add to my wish list. Aside from the kids clothes and crafty projects, there were quite a few Project Runway and Project Runway contestant patterns:
|S1687 - Project Runway Color Blocking Pocket Dress|
Sort of meh... Is it me, or are all of the Project Runway patterns starting to look alike?
|S1689 - Leanne Marshall fancy dress.|
I actually quite like this design, especially on the shorter version.
|S1690 - Another Leanne Marshall design.|
All of her patterns seem to extend from her winning
"petal wave" designs from the show.
|S1691 - A Suede Says design.|
The pattern is ok, but not really interesting enough for me to want to get it.
Simplicity also has one Retro pattern this release...
|S1692 - A 1940s vintage top pattern.|
|S1699 - Wardrobe pattern with peplum top.|
|S1697 - Skirt pattern with peplums and hi-lo hems.|
(Actually, I like view E the best, but already have a similar pattern.)
|S1694 - Baggy hi-lo tops.|
|S1695 - Hi-Lo hem - Extreme Edition.|
|S1686 - An amazing fit pattern.|
|S1688 - A Cynthia Rowley design. |
My favorite! This is the one must-buy pattern for me in this release.
