|M6959 - Probably one of my favorites of the release.|
Wrap-dress look, but for wovens.
|I actually like the variations with the slimmer skirt as well.|
|M6956 - Halter dress with skirt variations.|
|I do like halter dresses for summer, but this pattern feels like a lot of other patterns I have seen.|
The seaming would make it very easy to adjust sizing and fit though.
|M6958 - Basic dress with pleated skirt. Meh.|
|M6953 - Another basic summer dress. I guess some of the skirt |
variations are kind of interesting, but, again, meh.
|M6955 - A Laura Ashley pattern.|
The front of the dress is sort of generic...
|...but the racer back style is pretty cute. Or, well, at least, different.|
|M6954 - Another long flowy dress...|
|M6957 - How many scooped neck flowy maxi-style dresses did they need?|
|M6967 - Maxi dress/skirt and tank top pattern.|
Again, nothing really exciting or innovative here.
|M6966 - Maxi skirt with color block options. I like the way they used the stripes, |
though I expect I could use an existing pattern and do something similar.
|M6968 - Crop/tank top and tie-front skirt/shorts pattern.|
I don't find this pattern boring, but I also don't know that I would necessarily wear it.
|M6969 - Romper/jumpsuit pattern. Not really a fan of rompers. This is no exception.|
|M6962 - Oversized blouse. Something about the volume/length proportion is off.|
|M6961 - This peplum ruffle blouse is actually sort of cute.|
There are lots of sleeve/length variations, and it wouldn't be difficult to turn into a dress.
The neck might be a bit low, but it would look great with a pencil skirt or some jeans.
|M6960 - Another oversized tunic top. |
The cross-over detail makes this one slightly more exciting though.
The other variations are less exciting.
|M6964 - A Palmer/Pletsch pattern.|
Actually, the variations available would make this a great basic t-shirt pattern.
|M6963 - Another Palmer/Pletsch shirt design.|
Not that we don't have enough cowl necks already,
but this could be a good design if you don't want a deep neckline
(the other variation is more shallow than this photograph).
|M6965 - A Melissa Watson design shorts and pants.|
I love me a wide legged trouser, but these have the dreaded back zipper.
|M6975 - Costume accessory pattern.|
|One can only assume they expect the Steampunk crowd to go wild.|
|M6981 - This doll princess costume is rather pretty. I sort of want one for me...|
|M6977 - For some reason this bow bag pattern caught my eye.|
Don't know if I would ever use one for me,
but I could see making this as a gift for other people I know.
|M6973 - Ok, the top isn't bad, but what guy wears an elastic waistband?|
Why can't we get guy patterns that have features of men's clothing that men would actually wear?
So, what do you all think? See anything that piques your interest? Or are we going to be sewing from Vogue and Burda all summer long? Feeling inspired or totally board? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
