Secondly, along with releasing even more vintage posters, Simplicity has announced their latest pattern releases. This release is full of plenty of wearable spring dresses. But I can't say there is any one pattern the jumps out and grabs me as being really fantastic. Most of the designs are fine, but boring. That seems to be the theme of pattern releases for the week, I guess. Let's take a look:
|S1606 - A perfectly lovely dress. Nothing exciting or innovative, |
but a nice classic style. Pretty, but not exciting.
|S1607 - The latest Cynthia Rowley. Again, fine, but nothing new. |
Though my perspective might be skewed because I have seen one too many
skating dresses with tops like that in my time...
|S1610 - The latest Project Runway pattern. |
Again, nothing new with the style, but hey - it has pockets!
|S1612 - More cleavage cut out dresses...|
|S1613 - Knit tops. Usually I can't say no to more knit top patterns, |
but I think I am going to say no to this one. Too similar to things I already have.
|S1609 - A retro release from the 1960s. It is retro, but it is boring. |
Especially after I just saw all of the gorgeous costuming from a re-watch of the TV show Pan Am.
|S1611 - Ok, I get that it is supposed to be a simple dress, |
but does anyone else think it looks like lingerie?
|S1614 - So BORING! A strap does NOT qualify as "back interest."|
|S1621 - The jacket looks cute in the drawing, but sort of sloppy in execution.|
|S1617 - My hips are not a fan of those supper baggy pockets.|
|S1630 - This pattern could actually be quite useful, |
especially for the technologically savvy seamstress on the go.
|S1631 - I had to post this for the LOLs.|
