This collection mostly consists of dress patterns:
|B5995 - A Lifestyle Wardrobe pattern.|
I am quite enamored with the jacket, but the dress and skirt could be useful as well.
|The pattern comes with a jacket, dress, top, skirt, and capri pants.|
I am excited because the waist seam on the dress would help me with quite a few of my fit issues.
|Here is a view of the top/pants combo.|
Not sure how I feel about the scalloped neckline, but that could be easily changed.
|B5998 - I wasn't super excited by this sheath until |
I looked at the seaming in the line drawing...
|Ooooh! I don't know how the color blocking would actually look, but the curved |
seams are interesting. Also of note: this is a pattern for wovens, not knits.
|B5981 - A gown/cape combo. The evening gown is simple but lovely.|
|The dress is also available in a less formal short version.|
|B5987 - I am sort of torn on this one shoulder gown...|
|... I think I might like the alternate views better than the photographed one.|
But do I need another pattern for a ball gown?
|B5983 - I feel like this dress is supposed to be retro-inspired, and I sort|
of want to like it, but I feel like the proportions of the top are just a bit off.
|I love the drawing of it much more than the actual made up garment.|
Maybe I will wait and see if anyone posts a stunner on Pattern Review before I buy this one.
|B5984 - I feel like the more fitted bodice of this pattern would be more flattering|
for me at least, so I might get this one instead. And I really like the neckline detail!
|B5982 - Cute, but simple. Not bad, but not terribly exciting either.|
|B5971 - A See & Sew pattern. I like the belt tie, |
but the top might be slightly a bit too poofy.
|This is the alternate view of 5971 - the top still looks a bit baggy.|
Maybe this pattern will also be a pass.
|B5986 - A kAthRine Tilton pattern.|
Not something I would wear, but I can appreciate the draped detail on the skirt.
|B5994 - Also a kAthRine Tilton design. I actually quite like this jacket.|
Casual, but stylish. Also, it seems like big collars are quite the trend this year.
|B5992 - This little capelet has an elegant drape on the back.|
This could be perfect for finishing off an elegant holiday look.
|B5976 - The basic cut of this coat doesn't really interest me (I have too many |
similar patterns), but I do think Butterick did an excellent job of styling this pattern.
|B5975 - Another See & Sew. The dress and jacket are basic, but cute.|
|B5997 - Normally I don't go for overly blousey tops, but I am oddly drawn |
to this pattern. Perhaps it is the details and collar at the neckline?
And, the more important question - could I wear it and not look like a tent?
|B6002 - A Waverly pattern for electronic devices. |
There is also a pattern for a tablet purse. Could be good for holiday gift sewing?
|B5980 - Normally I don't discuss the children's patterns, but how cute is this dress?|
I almost wish I knew someone with kids that I could sew this for. Almost.
|B5985 - Ruffle frump. This dress screams dowdy.|
|B5974 - An oversized See & Sew top. Apparently baggy tops are a theme for this release.|
|The line drawing actually reminds me of that top from the February Burda. Only sloppy looking.|
|B5972 - Flower Power Frump.|
Do people still dress like this? It seems like it should be a vintage 70s pattern.
