Tell Us...Which New Simplicity Patterns Do You Like? Fabric by Elliott Berman Textiles!By DianeSev on 8/26/13 2:28 PM

The latest Simplicity are here! The Fall Collection is always fun because it features so many Halloween costumes and hints of winter holiday projects (I'm not ready. Are you?), including children's and adults' pajamas and loungewear.

For many of us, it's a time of transition in our wardrobes. I've picked some patterns with this change in mind, and Elliott Berman Textiles has helped me out with fabric choices (thank you, Elliott Berman!).

Here we go!

I like Simplicity 1539 in view E. In the deep purple Acai color would be great!

I'd like 1541 in the silk jacquard houndstooth shown above. Elliott Bermann has such lovely fabrics!

I have never had a coat I liked. They never fit properly. With that Simplicity Coat pattern I could have a casual coat, a dress coat, and an evening coat. A wardrobe of coats that all fit. That pattern is not just on my Wish List; it is on my Must Have list.

I'm intrigued that 1560 is "new" pattern. I have this same pattern somewhere in my sewing room - probably bought in the early 2000s. (I'm too lazy to go dig it out to see if they've changed the number.) It is a great pattern, however. I made two skirts from it (both out of a stretch bengaline or stretch cotton of some sort, view B) and I love them. They have a great movement, and it is an easy pattern. (I've been considering making another.)

Simplicity 1539: My first reaction to the model garment was, she should have done a "full bust adjustment" on that pattern; it's wrinkling over her bosom. View F looks like a skating dress; it would look odd over jeans. Views A and B are better, but only if you have a flat tummy! None of those prints appeal to me, altho the triangles are not actively obnoxious. The coat pattern I like, very much, especially the and gray view. H'mmm, crewel embroidery for the collar on the gray one? The collar on the purple one is magnificent, I love it, but it might be a little more dramatic than I'd wear much . . . maybe longer, as an evening wrap? The tuquoise ruff, however, just looks off-kilter. I love the embroidered white wool. Basic, standard man's shirt . . . you can't change that much. I like the plaid cotton, but it might be too pastel for my husband. The Hugo Boss print looks to much like a computer printout. The skirt: I don't care for those curved seams at all; they remind me of the pointless colorblocking on modern athletic wear. Contoured waistbands are nice if you wear your T-shirt untucked, but I'd adjust it so it sat AT my waist. The fabrics suggested for it are all winners.

I would definitely be interested in trying Simplicity 1541. The princess seams on the skirt offer great options for getting the right fit for a curvy gal like me.
