The latest releases from New Look have been announced by Simplicity… sort of. I don’t think they are on the website yet, but I’ve given up using the Simplicity website as a source of useful information – it is near impossible to look for new releases on there, and that was the main feature I used on the previous website. So I’m grabbing at straws on Instagram and trying to find alternative sources. They have published images from their new New Look catalog – so no line drawings, but we do get some cool pictures.
NL6428 – I like this. Simple, classy, and the fabric choice is very smart. I’d love to see a line drawing because I want to know if there are any variations in the envelope.
NL6429 – The neckline is interesting – it’s a nice take on the cut-out trend.
NL6430 – My friend wears a top like this obsessively, so I’d say it is very on trend.
NL6438 – Love this kimono inspired wardrobe pattern. It has a nice casual vibe, but still looks sophisticated.
NL6435 & NL6436 – Tunic/leggings and some casual pants. Sort of meh for me, but I could see the tunic pattern being popular.
NL6434 – Not really a fan of the sleeves on this top, but perhaps there are variations in the pattern?
NL6432 – Another peasant blouse tunic. The lace detail is pretty though.
NL6437 – Basic looking skirt.
NL6436 – More basic looking skirts. Not sure if this comes with the pants pattern from above – they are listed as having the same pattern number.
And that’s it! Personally, I’m not too inspired by most of these looks, though I am intrigued to see more information about the cover dress. Otherwise I think I’ll stick to my stash patterns for now. Anyone else interested in these new releases? Or is your spring sewing already set? Feel free to discuss in the comments!
