Newsflash: Fall New Look Patterns Released

The latest collection of New Look patterns has been released on the Simplicity website.  Even though this collection is a lot smaller than the Simplicity set, and even though about half of the patterns are for children, it is still infinitely more interesting.  Which isn’t to say there are a lot of patterns I here I am wanting to buy, but at least it isn’t totally snoozeworthy.  (Get it – snoozeworthy?  Since Simplicity released about 12 sleepwear patterns…)  Anyway, there isn’t really anything here that I don’t already have sitting around in a Burda somewhere, but I suppose a few of the patterns are at least worth a look.

NL6231 – It has taken me a year but I am finally starting to sort of get on board
with the whole peplum trend.  I think the jacket is pretty cute actually.
NL6227 – I think there are some nice options on this cape pattern.
Though ever time I see a new cape pattern all I can think of is Edna screaming “No capes!!!”
NL 6224 – Nice basic dress pattern.  View C is pretty cute.
NL 6223 – Another decent basic dress pattern.
NL 6230 – Who can’t use a good raglan sleeve top?
NL 6228 – If you don’t already have some good pencil
skirt patterns this looks like it has a few decent options…

 Of course, there were a few head scratchers as well…

NL 6226 – If that jacket was sent down the runway in that fabric
we all know Michael Kors would call it a 1980s reject garment. 
NL 6232 – Unisex shirt patterns… Just say no!

And, just for fun, anyone else want to plop this kid on a Roomba?

And that’s what they got.  Once again nothing I am really dying to buy and make up.  One of the great things about having a pattern stash I guess.  So, what do you all think?  Anything here that is super exciting?  Is anybody actually inspired to sew for fall yet?  Or are we just stuck in a rut of boring pattern releases?

  1. Definitely better than Simplicity, but still rather basic. Am I the only one that thinks the tops and skirts in 6230 are a really odd match to be in the same pattern envelope? I mean, they are both nice basics, but I wouldn't make an outfit out of them.
