I was looking for something else when I ran into the new ones. Haven't looked at them yet. I'll post my views later--I know you have to have my viewpoint, or you would be lost right. (much sarcasm here.)New -Click here

MYGosh, they found out about Trudy! 4220 and 4229 struck me as familiar! They look like Simplicity versions of HotPatterns. Maybe it is just me but I hope not.


I like the tea length versions of 4215 and 4258

Thanks Kimberely.

The Victorian Bridal Gown model has the most pathetic look on her face.

noooo, I am having flashbacks!!!4239

Ok lots of cute must haves for the kiddos. Finally a gaucho in the preteen sizes. Had to draft my own! Looks like the raven line is going to be great like the Lizzie mcguire!!!And I see a couple I will sneak into the cart for myself as well!!

Thank you for pointing them out Kimberly!

Dude, where's my time machine?

Peace out! (I like one of them, though, ahem!)

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.

Leora Now, now. I want to stand up for the Big 4, I don't think we look hard enough, or realize with the right fabrics, certain tweaking what can be done with the patterns. -- I am not yet under the spell of HP. --- And often good patterns get quickly over looked. (for instance Simplicity had an ethnic tunic released back in the fall of 2004-who says they are behind in the trends?)

Okay I have seen this style pant and the balloon skirt and the gauchos all over the runway. Good for Simplicity. 4237 Okay this is very RTW, but I would cut off the back tie, and make it just a band all the way around, add a back zip if I had to 4220. I like the wrap top if its not too boxy 4221. I like these jackets 4256 and the shaping of the waist on this one 4230 not that I bothered to sew a jacket in who knows how long.

And, like where's the WEED, Man, I need my WEED! 4239 Hippy

Yeah, 4220. Looking at the line drawing, it is reminiscent of Touran's tunic.

The prints are all so loud and bright and happy. Very happy.
