Some of them are new, others, well they are definitely familiar, read retread. There is yet another top with a bow front and center. Who looks good in this? There are some great patterns here, but unfortunately, the ones I like the best either don't fit my lifestyle, or they would look awful on my body and if I were to succumb to the lure of the $3.99 pattern sale at Joann, they would languish in my pattern stash never to meet fabric.
There are a few that I may purchase, if I manage to make the next sale.
This one is a real possibility. I even have the perfect fabric. They really should say that the wrong side of the fabric is going to show on this one. It has good lines for me, but a warm coat? Not this one.
I love this dress. It might even look good on me. Do I have any place to wear this dress? No.
I also think that I'd have trouble with an fba on this dress.
This one I may very well buy. I have plenty of blouses in my collection of BWOF, but I like the shoulder princess on this one. It is easy to alter for my DD cup bust and narrow shoulders.
This is another one I may buy. I am sewing V2948 pants that have front and back princess seams and the fit is fabulous. No, I can't sew it out of the envelope, but it was easy to alter for my body, which is what tempts me on this one even though I have several similar patterns from BWOF.
I love the coat, but again, I am attracted to something that really isn't the most flattering shape for my body. It has drop shoulders which accentuates my narrow shoulders and pools fabric at my bust line. The top? Haven't we seen this one before, and more than once.
Of course, if I were to make this one, I'd have to make long gloves to keep my arms warm.
The black ones with the quilted cuff are my favorites. But, lets face it, I'll never make a pair of gloves. But, they are pretty.
This is one of the few Marcy Tilton patterns that I like. Most of her stuff is just too shapeless for my taste, but this one has some really nice lines. I even like the trim on this one. Will I sew any of these? The blouse, vest and pants have the best chance of being sewn as they fit my lifestyle and body the best.
