I don't know if I just have too many patterns or what, but nothing really grabbed me in either collection.

Someone's late to the Downton Abbey party - Simplicity 1517. Maybe we'll see the 20's in a few years.

None of these inspires me to increase my pattern stash.

Both of these collections are pretty boring to me. Why is there so many pajama and knit loungewear patterns?

Only 1 adult women's dress each? Not counting the costume....
The suede dress is too similar to the Sewaholic Cambie to make me need it, and I don't see anything special about the new look dress. I'm sure I could hack that together from other patterns in my stash.
Don't need pajama patterns. My girls don't need flower girl dresses. Blah. Can we fast forward to spring?

For those in the target audience, I think the two Husky Boy & big / tall man patterns are nice. They don't have a lot of those.
1505
1506

And the crop jacket / bolero in
6243 is really nice.

But nothing I'm going to get either.

(Too bad no additional A-cup patterns! )

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.

As a non-North American, I sort of get the message that US & CA citizens spend their winters in bed or something, LOL!

I'm bored by everything but S1498, the accessories. Seems to cover all the bases, non?

This just seems so incomplete. Yep, definitely a yawn.
