Ok, again, I wasn’t going to post, but the new fall Simplicity and New Look patterns have been released here and here. Not too much of interest really. Except Simplicity does have a new Kate Middleton engagement knockoff dress pattern – a Project Runway pattern to boot!
|Pattern is totally a knockoff.|
There are a few new costume patterns (ethnic dance/belly dance type styles) and a retro 60’s dress re-issue, as well as an interesting new skirt pattern, but I don’t know how much I will be wanting to get any of these. A recent acquisition of some older BWOF (yes, real BWOF, not BurdaStyle! – post to come later) leaves me feeling very satisfied with my pattern stash at the moment, especially in the skirt department. Especially since I really don’t wear skirts often, or at all. I may eventually break down and get the new Simplicity costumes because, well, costumes!
As for New Look – snoozefest. There are a few Project Runway Workroom styles that are ok, but some of them look very similar to recent Burda offerings, or other Big4 patterns I have already stashified, so not really of interest.
So, well, not too much to get excited over, but worthy of an announcement at the least.
