Being the holidays there are a lot of party-worthy dresses in this release:
|B6146 - A Connie Crawford gown. Comes in miss and women's sizes, |
also has a variation with sleeves. I like the simple lines and neckline.
|B6127 - At first I thought this was a dress/jacket combo, but actually it's just a dress.|
Love the neckline, and the possible fabric combinations could be very interesting.
|Love the seam details in the line drawing. Looks very sharp.|
|B6124 - I wasn't too impressed at first, but I do like the sleeve detail here.|
Also, pockets are nice. I think the other versions with a
higher neckline might be more wearable though.
|Views C and D might be more versatile in a wardrobe.|
|B6130 - I normally don't care much for a jumpsuit, but I like the lines here.|
The fact that the rest of the options are for dresses doesn't hurt either.
|The bodice is quite pretty for the dresses and the jumpsuit.|
|B6128 - Love this wrap dress - looks like such a useful wardrobe staple.|
There are also a lot of coats and jackets in this release:
|B6143 - I wasn't too excited by the garment photo here, but then I saw the line drawing...|
|View D shall be mine! (Also maybe view C. And view B, in a different color...)|
|B6140 - Another jacket pattern where I was on the fence at first, but the line drawings sold me again.|
|Loving view D here too! And view B. |
I have a thing for long dramatic coats.
|B6141 - A coat/jacket pattern with pleated detail.|
|I tend to prefer a more fitted jacket, but I do rather like the drawing of the longer variation here.|
|B6139 - Basic jacket/vest pattern with cup sizing. It's fine, but basic.|
|B6142 - A Lifestyle Wardrobe pattern.|
I think the individual pieces are ok, but not sure how I feel about them together?
|Also comes with a vest and dress option.|
|B6120 - A See & Sew basic jacket pattern. Simple, clean lines.|
|B6119 - Another basic See & Sew jacket pattern.|
There are some cute tops in this release:
|Love the lines of this fitted woven blouse.|
|I actually really like all the views!|
|B6133 - A nice variation on a button down blouse.|
|The gathering in the back is an interesting detail. |
I feel like it might look better in real life than it does in the drawing.
|B6132 - A Fast & Easy Knit top. Looks like the perfect cozy quick sew for winter.|
|I actually like all the options here as well. This one is on my list.|
|B6136 - A Kathrine Tilton pattern. I'm actually really digging this one.|
It is the perfect balance between voluminous and fitted -
not my typical style, but I'm sort of wanting to try it out.
|B6138 - Another Katerine Tilton top. This one has a bit much going on for me,|
but I do rather like the collar.
|You can see all the details better in the line drawing.|
|B6135 - A Fast & Easy pattern. Looks like a LOT to fabric.|
Might be nice for cuddling under the blankets at home.
|B6147 - Boxy tunic top. Meh.|
|B6144 - A Fast & Easy pattern. Looks sort of like PJs in this fabric choice.|
|B6117 - A See & Sew pattern. The tucks at the top are a nice detail.|
|B6118 - Another See & Sew top pattern. I like the collar on this one.|
There are also a few other assorted new styles:
|B6152 - Robe/nightgown pattern set. Has a slightly vintage feel to it.|
|B6145 - Basic PJs.|
|B6137 - A Fast & Easy pants pattern. Could see this made up in a lot of different fabrics.|
|B6151 - A Waverly corset pattern.|
|B6149 - A Retro Butterick Doll's pattern. Cute!|
|B6150 - Another cute Retro doll's pattern.|
|B6122 - A See & Sew doll's pattern. Looks fairly basic - |
might be a good holiday gift for a young-un interested in learning to sew.
|B6148 - A Waverly tote bag pattern.|
|B6121 - A See & Sew tote/backpack bag pattern.|
