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.
