The major trend of this release seems to be oversized pattern, which we all know is not exactly my favorite look. But, well, I will try to be as fair as possible to the new looks.
|B5884 - A Suzi Chin pattern.|
I feel like the fabric choice makes for a great photo,
but I don't think the sleeves would be super practical in real life.
|B5884 - I suppose the sleeveless version is a bit more versatile? |
But also pretty boring.
|B5883 - Another Suzi Chin pattern.|
I want to like the drape, but it really just makes the dress look like a rectangle with a cowl neck.
|B5881 - a kAtheRine Tilton pattern.|
I appreciate that the patchwork quality of this top doesn't look too forced.
Still not a fan of the baggy shape.
|B5891 - another kAtheRine Tilton.|
Not really a fan of the super wide hem - it makes the top look like a tent.
|B5889 - Generic oversized tunic top.|
|B5893 - Even the pants are oversized and baggy!|
I mean, typically I am a fan of a nice wide-legged trouser,
but these look like giant rectangles with an elastic waistband.
(Also - floral placement over the crotch is a crisis only partially averted.)
|B5874 - A See & Sew pattern.|
I actually might get this one because it looks like one of my
sister's favorite RTW tops and she has requested a re-make.
|B5882 - A new Gertie pattern.|
I predict this will be a popular look, especially with the vintage lovers.
|B5895 - Another Gertie pattern.|
The top and high-waisted pants are cute, but not really my style.
|B5880 - A Retro Butterick pattern.|
I like the top and hip drape, but I think the length would be quite awkward on me.
I think this will be another pass for me, but I do hope to see some of the
vintage lovers out there make this one up though.
|B5886 - A Muse pattern.|
A rather basic pattern but I sort of like it. I really like that the back is
covered and not an open halter neck, and that this is designed for
non-stretch fabrics and is meant to be lined.
|B5886, again. Actually, I think I like the even hem better though. And I might |
have some stash fabric that is calling out to be made into this dress...
|B5885 - A Maggy London pattern.|
Not sure how I feel about the zig-zag hem.
|B5887 - Another Muse pattern.|
I am sort of liking the color blocking on this knit dress, but I don't exactly find the
dress in the picture super flattering on the model. Something to ponder...
|B5894 - A nice party dress. |
I am a bit torn on the scalloped detail, but I think I sort of like it.
|B5870 - A See & Sew easy knit dress.|
I predict this could be a popular style and it looks pretty easy to put together.
|B5873 - Another See & Sew pattern.|
Very simular to some Vogue and McCall's patterns I already have, but I do like the style.
|B5900 - How cute is this children's historical costume?|
|B5901 - They even have the accurate undergarments.|
|B5879 - Maybe it is a combo of the fabric, the skirt, and all the ruffles, |
but am I the only one who thinks "frumpy?"
