Not too much to excite me here, but at least the bad photoshopping distracts from the boring clothes.

I'll want to look at the pattern pieces of M6884 to see if the skirt is interesting enough to buy. But meanwhile we get to see the model's bra strap.



And really, what have they done to the poor model's waist/arm in M6889?

Yes, cold north wind and icy temperatures; it's not even the start of winter - I agree it's too early to be thinking about spring. I suppose an organized person could start the spring sewing, but really not much to inspire me there at all.

Not particularly enthused. The only one I like is 6883, and that was only after clicking through. Of course the sample is made up in the least interesting view. The version I do like, though, would probably never get worn if I made it because of bra strap issues.

the pattern I found interesting when I looked at the pattern drawings was 6887 - it appears to have a cut out back on a couple of the views, but no mention in the description nor in the photos/artist rendering..

I like 6911 too, especially the bolero. I could do with a little steampunk style in my life.

It's a custom-made designer original. I made it myself.

Yes, but they are perfect for us in the Southern Hemisphere in our early summer!

I looked at them and said 'meh'. But there was one that had possibilities so I checked out the details -- and it had details. So I checked out another one, and it had details. Their selected pictures aren't doing themselves any favors.

M6883 was already mentioned. View C, the boring one, actually has design interest possibilities for the back view.

M6889 - nice seams, optional sleeves, optional neck-line treatment.


M6890 - nice neckline, and it has sleeved versions. (Pretty model, also)


M6893 has great LBD possibilities (in less flamboyant fabric choices)


There are some others with details worth looking at, I think.

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