Are You Ready for New Simplicity? By DianeSev on 12/19/11 3:46 PM

December 22 is the first day of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, so it's a little funny to see that Simplicity has just released their 2012 Early Spring Collection.

So after you've wrapped those holiday presents, move aside those sugarplum fairies to dream of what you'll sew for the spring!

While dresses have been all the rage with PR members this year (see the Best Patterns voting to know what I mean), correct fit is always uppermost in PR members' minds. Here are two Amazing Fit patterns in this collection:

Simplicity 1914 Misses' & Plus Size Amazing Fit Dresses

Simplicity 1918 Misses' & Miss Petite Amazing Fit Pants

Knit tops never have a season, do they? With this pattern, you can sew a multiplicity of tops for all seasons!
