I'm so tired of all the crafty styles. If I want one of those I'll got you youcanmakethis.com.
Kwik Sew needs to remember their roots, patterns for knits that look like rtw.

I agree with you, and I feel fortunate to have a collection of KS patterns from the good old days.

Horrible fabric choices for the photos! The children's section is full of designs you can get anywhere else-- ruffled sundresses. Kwik Sew used to fill a unique niche and they seem to be moving away from that niche. Very sad.

I'm also surprised at the lack of choice. Especially in adult clothing.

I too agree with you on this. This is what happens when you are bought out by a big company, they lost their uniqueness.

I use to love KS waiting for he new patterns to come out each season. But since they changed ownership there is nothing that I like. How long has it been now? I still do love the older patterns I can still purchase from Etsy and eCARTER or EBay.

Great sewing is knowing exactly, what your machine will do.

Definitely nothing in this release that justifies the higher Kwik Sew price.

Snooze.

I would buy the men's pattern...those shorts look like something I could convince my son to wear.
