Oooh I was on the fence about ordering from StyleArc as I like the freebie but may wait until mid month to see what they add.... then this appears in my mailbox! I really like the easy one piece wrap, would work with a lot of fabrics and great in the office when it's freezing, and I love the dress too with Nina's top (which I already have). And men's jeans - looks like they're getting into menswear too!

The one piece has an interesting shape. I would like to try that pattern, too.
I wish I could see the jeans better. From the line drawing they look straight leg or tapered... I need a boot cut or a a flare that is slightly larger than a boot-cut.

There used to be tutorials on silhouette pattern's website, but I can't find them - do you know the link?

Hmm, I don't know about the new patterns, but one of them is pictures with 211, Nina's Top, which is a nice cardigan alternative.

I still haven't gotten over them not having A-cup as well as B, C, & D.

I haven't looked at their patterns in a while; they have many more styles than the last time I checked them out.

Since the jeans pattern is for men, I will pass on that. I do like the striped dress. Peggy wore it on her last webcast and it looked good. My sister would like the wrap. I would need to modify the label on the jacket. The 4 patterns are available as a group for $29.99. I purchased the spring set. Everyone of them suited me. I really do not need the fall ones, but still love the dress.

I feel left out too.

Nice that they have B, C, and D cup sizing for the men's jeans though

I think that's just part of the logo.
Also an A here and I just adjust downward a bit as with any others (sometimes on knits I just flatten out the darts and can skip them altogether) just as I have had to adjust up to DD+ for DD (no pun intended!) who clearly didn't get them from me. There are many of us outside the B/C/D specific size one way or another, I think the multicup sizing just makes for less extreme adjusting needed when that's the case.
I don't know if I'll ever make men's jeans but I really like the others a lot.

Have you tried the B cup? I am an A cup and the B cup fits me fine. I love Silhouette Patterns because they fit much more like RTW.

I'm really glad to see the men's jeans! It's hard finding jeans to fit my 28" waist husband. Who's also 5'2". I've resorted to buttonhole elastic and hemming (of course). There's another popular men's pants pattern that looks nice but is way too 'metro' for my southern-but-won't-admit-it husband.

Now he can have a pair of jeans that fit perfectly without after-market modifications! Now I just need to figure out how to make them look like carpenter jeans...

No, I've never tried their patterns. I like some of their offerings, though, and am thinking of getting some.

And I am mostly joking about the A-cup issue, of course, because most other patterns are for B-cup anyway.

P.S. Sewliz - very cute!
