|K4068 - This dress isn't overly complicated, but I like it.|
|You can see the details better in the sleeveless version.|
|K4081 - This dress was the first on the product page that caught my eye.|
|However, I'm not sure if I really like the way the gathering is looking in the photos.|
|K4085 - I actually really like this tunic top, which also comes with an options for sleeves.|
(Also, color choice + hair style makes me think Elsa. Or maybe Daenerys. Dang. Now I want to get it.)
|K4084 - Another knit top with longer tunic option. |
I like this, but it is very similar to recent Burda releases,
so I think I can pass.
|K4069 - I like this turtleneck top, but it is another pattern I think is skip-able|
if you (like me) already have several in your stash.
|K4071 - The design lines on this jacket are rather nice.|
It actually looks like it wouldn't be too complicated to sew either,
so it might be a nice way for someone to try a more complex project.
|K4087 - I had problems seeing the design features past the crazy bright prints...|
|But the basic style lines are actually quite nice.|
|K4072 - Normally I skip all the PJ patterns, but this racerback slip is an|
interesting addition to the pattern, and not something I've seen elsewhere.
|K4075 - This looks like a great man's shirt pattern. |
Could be a nice wardrobe staple.
|K4070 - Simple straight leg trousers. Fine, but not overly exciting.|
|K4083 - Peplum tunic. Not sure if I'm loving the proportions.|
Sort of reminds me of things my Skipper dolls wore in the early 90s.
|K4082 - This peplum dress was sort of a "meh" for me when I first saw it, |
but then I saw the line drawing...
|The peplum stops in the back. Ummm, what? Then it becomes this sort of odd|
perma-apron thingy. Or it looks like your dress got caught in the elevator. Or something.
Again, ummm, what?
So there (some of) it is. Sorry to say I'm feeling too lazy to comment on the rest of it. Or even continue my rant about how sad I am to see Kwik Sew going from fast, easy clothing patterns to assorted craft items. Or about how they retired, like, 85% of their athletic design patterns. I'm really digging that one tunic top, but the rest of it... is passable. Especially since I feel like I've already got similar patterns in the stash. So - what are your thoughts? See anything worth getting? Or are the Kwik Sew patterns a total snoozefest, especially in light of some of the awesome designs we've been getting from other brands this fall? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
