New Patterns

I photographed new patterns I purchased over the Memorial Day holiday with all the sales going on. It may become apparent that I am somewhat obsessed with cold shoulder patterns.

B6355 is a colder shoulder pattern for woven fabrics.  I like the review of the pattern on Pattern Review and since Club BMV was having a sale I just added it to the shopping cart.  I like a few of the other views also.

Another pattern with interesting sleeves.  This is the year for a variation of tulips and flounces for sleeves.

I liked how these patterns were presented on Closet Case website.  I ordered this from Hart Fabrics as they too had a sale going for patterns.  I have CC PDF patterns for jeans and a jacket, yet to tackle.

I also added a KS pattern from Club BMV.  I had this pattern previously and remembered making a jacket similar to the white one and was disappointed.  Years have passed since I made that jacket and I saw a similar one at our local Macy's and have some fabric that I wanted to use to try this again.  It is the front drape that I am trying to achieve; I don't want a fold back lapel and all patterns I find with similar drape have that.  This does not, so hoping to achieve the look I am seeking. 

Lastly-I have completed the Style Arc Marilyn Dress.  I really like the look of it but the sleeve instructions and drawings were confusing to me.  I finally ignored the illustrations and read the instructions 100 times ( a little exaggeration here) and finally got it right.  I do like the outcome of how the sleeve looks, but what a pain in the butt it was to get there.  Next time, it should go much better; I do believe there will be a next time as I have the fit just right!  Post to follow soon.


  1. Nice picks. I have all of the ones you listed except the Kwik Sew and CCP's Ebony top.

  2. It's true that the cold shoulder tops are really on trend right now. You looked good in the red one you made.

  3. Thank you for the great article. I am interested in the tee pattern. Nice selection!
