The Simplicity website has posted the Fall/Winter Collection for New Look. Overall it looks like there are some great basics – sheath dresses, pencil skirts, knit tops, and a few coats and jackets for fall.
|I love the simple pleating at the neckline.|
|Nice basic sheath dress pattern (with optional peplums).|
|This could be a cute party dress.|
|Loving the knit shirts!|
|I also really like the detail on the knit shirts in this pattern.|
|A Project Runway jacket pattern.|
|And a Project Runway cape.|
So, overall I think this is a pretty decent collection. However, I also know that I find I have to make the greatest adjustments with New Look patterns, so I don’t know if it is worth buying any of the fitted patterns, especially when I am sure I could find something comprable somewhere in my (ever growing) Burda collection. I might go for the knit tops though – fitting issues should be minimized there. Maybe. I hope.
So, what do you all think? Do you love New Look patterns or do you tend to stick with other pattern companies? Did I miss anything good in this release? As always, feel free to discuss in the comments.
