First, the fun Butterick Retro designs and the designer patterns:
|B6022 - A Retro Butterick pattern.|
I LOVE this gown. Sooooo pretty!
Makes me think of Disney Princesses...
|B6018 - Another Retro pattern.|
I think this dress is super cute! I would totally wear this.
|B6019 - A Gertie Pattern.|
Very pretty - would be great for attending an outdoor wedding.
|The other B6019 view - I really like this slightly more casual view too!|
|The bust detail is my favorite part - I wonder if you could do this in a contrast color?|
|B6031 - Another Gertie Pattern.|
This pattern includes a slip, two cami tops, and some panties.
I think the slip is pretty cute.
|B6020 - An ivy + blu pattern.|
I actually really like the contrast yoke,
and I think the design looks really pretty in the chiffon.
|B6021 - Another ivy + blu pattern.|
This maxi dress looks like it would be nice and light to wear during hot summer days.
|B6026 - The radiating darts are really interesting on this kAthRine Tilton pattern.|
|B6028 - kAtheRine Tilton pants.|
Elastic back waist means easy fitting, and pockets are always nice.
|B6016 - The front of this dress is quite plain, |
but the bow and pleat on the back are a rather sweet detail.
|B6015 - This would be a very wearable dress for spring, but, |
well, I am not overly excited by the style.
|B6032 - I actually sort of like the silhouette of this dress.|
It comes in Butterick's regular and plus sizes.
|B6033 - A Connie Crawford pattern.|
It is fine, but I feel like we have seen a lot of color blocked dresses like this lately.
|B6014 - A casual peplum style dress. |
Another dress that is fine, but doesn't leave me overly excited.
|B6008 - A See & Sew pattern.|
Button detail is nice, but I don't know how I feel about it with the belt.
|B6007 - A See & Sew pattern. Meh.|
|B6006 - The neckline of this See & Sew pattern is sort of interesting.|
|B6025 - A pattern from The Cut Line.|
The peplum top isn't too bad, and the pattern also includes a dress variation.
|B6009 - Not sure how I feel about the proportions of this See & Sew pattern.|
Has a bit of a maternity feel to it...
|B6029 - Another pattern from The Cut Line.|
Feels a bit boxy and overwhelming to me.
|B6010 - Another See & Sew pattern.|
It feels like jumpsuits took the bloging world by storm a few years back.
Still not sure I am really interested in making one, but this one looks pretty basic.
|B6030 - A Lifestyle Wardrobe pattern.|
It includes a top, jacket, skirt, and pants.
|I feel like the jacket looks pretty nice in a darker color.|
|Not sure how appropriate that top would be for work, |
especially if it was getting warm and the jacket needed to come off.
There were also a lot of doll patterns this time around:
|B6001 - A Retro doll's pattern. So cute!|
|B6000 - More Retro doll's clothes.|
|B6035 - This doll's pattern includes a hoop skirt!|
I am always a sucker for historical costumes...
|B6034 - A Rachel Wallis pattern.|
Anybody out there interested in making your own cast of Downton Abbey?
