New Simplicity Patterns Are Here!By DianeSev on 6/28/11 12:35 PM


Announcing the New Simplicity Patterns!

For some of us, summer is just kicking off, and we don't want to think about...(oh, no!)...fall! But Simplicity makes it easier to bear with the great looks in their early autumn collection.

Here are a few patterns that will get you excited about sewing for fall.







Simplicity 2145 Misses Dress

Sizes 4-12, 12-20


The key to this Project Runway-inspired look is variation! Want your sleeves long, short, or midway and gathered? How about some bodice variations? Change up the fabric and it looks like a completely different dress! Oh, and don't forget the neckline!

Suggested Fabrics: Laundered cottons, sateen, challis, crepe, crepe-back satin, crepe de Chine, laundered silks-rayons, jacquards, silk linen, shantung, taffeta, matte jerseys, linen and linen blends.





Simplicity 2153 Misses Anorak
Sizes 6-14, 16-24


It's nice to have a little extra coverage when fall comes, isn't it? With this pattern, you get the full range of sleeves: sleeveless, three-quarter length sleeves and long sleeves. Opt for a cinched or tapered waist. And the collars are a unique combo: regular flat-style, drawstring, and band collar with fastener. And if that's not enough, there are two styles of pockets. Mix it all up with one or more of the suggested fabrics for your own style!

Suggested Fabrics: Flannel, batiks, lightweight denim, pique, poplin, twill, sateen, lightweight wool and wool blends, sueded silks/rayons, satin, shantung, taffeta, double knits, velour, linen and linen blends, nylon sport fabrics, suede cloth.





Simplicity 2154 Misses/Petite Blouse, Skirt, Jacket and Cardigan

Sizes 6-14, 16-24


Blast back to the 60's with this retro pattern when three quarter-sleeved jackets a la Chanel and "tight skirts" were all the rage! This pattern includes patterns for A Knit Cardigan and C Jacket to multiply your wardrobe choices. Add a pillbox hat of your design and, voila! You've got the look!

Suggested Fabrics: Jacket A is sized for stretch knits only (cotton interlock, lightweight double knits, two-way stretch, novelty knit fabrics). For Blouse B, laundered cottons, challis, jacquards, voile, double georgette. For Jacket C and Skirt D, pique, poplin, twill, sateen, wool crepe, tweed, crepe, sueded silks/rayons, brocade, shantung.


And now for a fun pattern!



Simplicity 2161 Misses Aprons
That's My Sister Designs by Annaliese Puccini


The layers of fabric in these aprons add to the fun! Use up those short lengths of fabric for this one.

Suggested Fabrics: Broadcloth, calico, chintz, lightweight denim, twill, gingham, poplin.
