My Image Spring/Summer 2016

The latest magazine from My Image was announced a few weeks ago, but I was too busy to sit down and write a post when it first came out.  On the whole I think there are some good summer pattens here; I’m especially excited by the jeans pattern and potentially by the oversized cardigan as well.

Here are the line drawings for the patterns in this issue:

The dresses.  Nothing overly complex or exciting, but definitely some wearable sheaths and maxi styles:

The jacket is ok, but I’m not sure why you’d need a scarf in summer?

Digging the pants in this issue, not as in love with the baggy shorts:

Fairly basic blouses this time around:

I like the line drawing of the oversized cardigan a lot, but not as sure seeing it on the models.  Perhaps in different fabric/trim I’ll be more enchanted:

The one thing I’m a bit bummed about is that some of the best patterns (the Nikita dress and the Demi blouse) are only available for PDF purchase.  Happily, if you buy the magazine you get a code for a free Nikita:

When I first saw the patterns I wasn’t overly excited, but I am liking the looks of the jeans, the sheath dress, the A-line dress, the Nikita dress, and the possibly the slouchy cardigan.  Not the most exciting collection of summer clothes, but My Image always seems to provide a very wearable assortment of wardrobe options.  So, what do you all think?  See anything that makes you want to sew for spring or summer?  Or have you lost interest in My Image as the patterns have become somewhat redundant if you own some of their earlier magazines?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!
