It’s always an exciting day when a pattern company reveals some new styles…and it looks to me like both McCall’s and Simplicity released some new beauties today! I can’t help but share some of them with you…the good, the bad, and some observations.
And adorable from the back! (mullet dress, anyone?) I can totally see that upper cutout being shaped into a heart instead – would that be cute? Totally not something I can wear (no wearin’ a bra with this one!) but I think it’s pretty cute!
This is kind of a Good and a Bad…I am a sucker for draped silhouettes and cowls, so I love D, E, and F. I also like the knot style (views A, B and C) in this pattern in theory, but the neckline of that version kind of looks like it’s cannibalizing itself on the model. Om nom nom.
I think this one has lots of potential. The first thing I thought when I saw it? Joan Hathaway. While we’re on the subject, when are they going to add Season 5 to Netflix?!
Seriously…WTH? I feel like this lady needs to amuse the king or she’ll lose her post as court jester…the short version isn’t too bad, but it’s just a lot of color blocking for one frock!
This shirt looks kind of looks familiar to me…
It’s Katniss‘s interview dress! Bet she’ll be a popular subject of Halloween costumes this year.
Lastly, I leave you with this pattern
