New Simplicity Are Here! By DianeSev on 3/26/12 3:15 PM

It feels like only yesterday that Simplicity brought us spring fashions! But here we are for Round 2! Oil up your sewing machines!

Here's a rundown on what Simplicity is featuring this spring.

Slit shoulders:

Skirt variations that feature the mullet, as Noelle calls it (or "up and down", as she heard a store clerk call it). Party in front and business in the back?

Costumes for Steampunk (risque or more demure) or the 150th anniversary of the Civil War:

Girls' headbands are so popular!

A nice change that we noticed is that Simplicity is featuring plus-size models on its envelopes for patterns that run in the plus-size range. Sometimes the plus-size model appears on the envelope specifically for that size, and sometimes she shares the pattern envelope with the usual model.

And now for some standouts!

Simplicity 1797
Sizes 6-14, 16-24

This short-sleeved or sleeveless dress has princess seams on the bodice and a front pleat to reveal the fabric underneath. Sew the short-sleeved jackets for those spring days that are just a little cooler. Great Easter wear!

Simplicity 1806
Sizes 8-16, 16-24

One of these views reminds us so much of Best Patterns 2010's Simplicity 2599. All five views are cute, with sleeve variations, neck variations, ruffle choices and hem variations. So many tops in one pattern envelope!

Simplicity 1802
Sizes 6-14, 14-22

Make this flirty dress with sleeve variations. If you like the tapered to full flowing skirt they're showing this season and want to see more, check out Simplicity 1799 and Simplicity 1803.
