New Look for Spring
Simplicity releases their New Look spring pattern collection.
My favorite, a chic jacket
Pattern 6099 is on my pattern shopping list! It is easy to sew and has a professional and fashionable vibe. This princess seamed, lined jacket has two sleeve choices and an optional lace overlay for the lapel. This is a great style when made in summer-weight wool for the office, cotton poplin paired with jeans for dinner out, or in a cotton/spandex denim for cool and casual weekend days.
"Gotta have" dresses
Pattern 6094 and pattern 6097 are the perfect spring-into-summer dresses. Pattern 6094 is sleeveless or has sweet cap-sleeves. The bodice has princess seams and darts and a shaped waistband. The pleated skirt is full and flirty or slim and feminine. Pattern 6097 is a fashionable faux-wrap dress. Add an optional collar to the v-shape neckline and choose short sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves with a tab and button. Finish off the look with a self-fabric belt to cinch in the waist.
Practical and sweet ensembles
Professional and pretty, pattern 6107 is a skirt and top set. The skirt is a classic straight skirt with two length choices; the top has a shoulder yoke, waist darts and an optional neck tie. Make it sleeveless, with short sleeves, or 3/4 length sleeves with a narrow cuff.
Pattern 6108 is a summery knit-only set. Flattering on many figure types, the A-line skirt sits below the knee and has an elastic waist. The top has three neckline/shoulder variations. Easy to sew, you can make this outfit in just a few hours--stop by the fabric store tonight, and have a new outfit tomorrow!
Pattern 6110 is a casual, leggings and top duo. The elastic-waist, slim leggings are for knit fabrics and the top is appropriate for a wide range of lightweight woven fabrics. The top comes in two lengths and has two sleeve options.
