I am getting convinced that the big 4 forget they aren't the only companies out there. Bad offerings, poor customer service and other problems do not make one really inspired.

Even so, Burda and Manequim both have similar designs that look a lot better then some of these.

Wasn't there someone on this board who intended to make her own wedding gown and wanted a cutout back bodice like the one shown here?

Yes, Jann, view B of the Cynthia Rowley jacket has kidney-shaped holes at the shoulder blades. Pretty unusual. :)

I rather like the lines on the Khaliah Ali jacket and skirt. The made-up jacket is just ok, but the line drawing looks nice.

1772 looks like a cheap Halloween costume, which is probably all that it's intended to be.

Stretch Fabric? For steam punk?

I think they lost some design team members or they just got lazy. These are Becky HomeEcky basic boring patterns. Project Runway patterns show a basic shift and basic coat. The Leanne Marshall dress is just another shirtdress and the Cynthia Rowley design is a basic jacket. For Fall. With holes. They could have at least included the second layer in the envelope. Steampunk = edgy Victorian styles and last I checked, no nylon nor lycra during Victorian period and their other costume offerings suck. No period historical patterns-- just fairytale costuming. Even the children's patterns are dull. And then we have the predictable patterns to sell trim. The It's So Easy was also subpar. I think in 1970's terms Simplicity gave us a "Jiffy" release. This was just underwhelming after the Vogue release. I don't know why new sewists would be attracted to this line.
