Kellysews Kellysews writes: I really love the dress. It has a retro feel and classic lines and with the princess seams there is so much potential. I would need the 16-24 size.

user-614352 user-614352 writes: I LOVE patterns with multiple garments. I would love to have an outfit of the pants, jacket and top. Of course the dress is great also!!! I'm in my early 60's so had peplum top patterns but wouldn't fit in those any longer... :)

beebusby beebusby writes: I am a size 12 14. I just really like the classic lines of the blouse and dress. The dress is so very feminine, one to make and wear on a day you need to feel extra pretty. In fact this is a combination of some of my favourite styles.

Vernelle Vernelle writes: I love the top and would definitely be making it at least two or three times. Depending upon the fabric I use, this top can be dressed up or down. I can see me wearing this to made of red knit with silver thread woven in to a holiday party and one made of a jersey knit with a pair of jeans for a day of shopping or with some dress slacks for an evening out on the town. My size is 8-16.

bournegirl bournegirl writes: I like the adaptability of the jacket. I have two fabrics in my "stash" that will be just right with the shape of the jacket; some nice dark denim that would look great with some lace over the front. Or maybe I'll finally be able to have my pinwale corduroy jacket. I love to use trims, so would probably put some cord along the front open edge. If I am fortunate enough to win, I would like the size 8-16. (I confess, the pants are my second faves; they look stylish AND comfortable, and would be able to complete them on a weekend afternoon! MY kind of pattern!)

SewingFever SewingFever writes: I love the look of all the pieces, but especially the peplum blouse. The princess style seams make me look a little less heavy in the bustline, and the nipped in waist makes me look a little smaller in the waist. The peplum sets over the hips just right to cover a slight tummy area. The over-all look is fashionable while making me look slimmer -- a winner in my fashion closet any day.

Karen_Rae Karen_Rae writes: I love the dress. My figure looks best in princess seam. I'd love your book to expand my knowledge on fitting. Due to health issues in my 20's with early onset menopause, precancerous condition that led to hysterectomy at 27 and thyroid cancer in my 50's--I have spent a lifetime gaining and losing significant amounts of weight. Thank God that I learned to sew when I was 10 (my grandmother was a wizzardess) and learned how to measure and fit. My biggest fit issues are not knowing what size to purchase to minimize alterations, my top not being the same size as the bottom and the constantly changing size of my body. If I am the fortunate winner of this prize, I would like size 16-24.

Passante Passante writes: All the pieces are lovely but my favorite -- like almost everyone else -- would be the dress. It has simple, classic lines, and the princess seams in the bodice are very flattering. I'm at the age when I don't want my upper arms exposed by sleeveless dresses, so the cap sleeves would suit me well; and the neckline is not too wide for a petite frame with narrow shoulders, which is a problem with many patterns. I'm a size 8-16.

I like the jacket most because it is a nice simple style and so would be more simple and therefore quicker to make that a more tailored jacket.

Simplicity patterns always produce great versatile designs.
The fact that I am a petite size would just be a bonus if I won.

Wencer Wencer writes: I favor the short, straight jacket. More than 20 years ago I bought an extremely expensive length of printed faux leather. I meant to make a jacket, but right then, all the patterns had extended shoulders and wide lapels. I just couldn't make my gorgeous (red with subtle black print) fabric fit the patterns. I've kept that fabric carefully rolled to prevent creases for 20 years while I have been looking for a straight, plain jacket to work up that gorgeous fabric -- perfect with a straight black skirt or over a straight little black dress. Yes, I'd probably buy this pattern anyway, but I just want to thank you for possibly making my dream jacket come true. I would most likely make the jacket in a size 18.

marijkapaprika marijkapaprika writes: I'm hot-natured and live a very casual lifestyle, so I love the peplum top! I'd dye and bead heavy cotton jersey, then wear it with jeans and cowboy boots. What a pretty alternative to a basic tee, and perfect for wearing out!

G_Fox G_Fox writes: The jacket appeals most to me. I would like to sew it in a sanded silk with bead embellishments for an evening at the opera theater. Then again it would be a simple enough design to use the 3/8 inch hexagons I have been piecing for use on a very unique garment. Size 8-16.

SKPeek SKPeek writes: The "Channel" jacket & pants. I don't wear dresses much, and have never been able to get fitted dresses to look as well on me as they should. I'm kind of a "pear", so fitted waistlines & shorter skirts tend to make me - and other pears, IMHO - look dumpy. But the jacket & pants are classy and simple enough to do wonderful things with fabric mixes, appliques, top-stitching, trims, and other very individual approaches. I'd love to have the pattern in sizes 16-24.

quiltingfinn quiltingfinn writes: I really liked Simplicity 1699. Major problem, no sizes to fit my women's 28 size. Why are there no any fashionable dresses, skirts in womens sizes. I am not fond of sacks and all elastic waists. I have searched in vain for a fit and flare pattern.

Lady_D Lady_D writes: I love the look of this dress. The style is appropriate for all ages, yet conservative enough to suit this older lady...
Size 16-24 could be made to fit me. I'm a little bit taller than most petites, but not nearly tall enough to say I'm average, so I have a hard time buying clothes to fit. Making my own garments seems to be the answer to the fit problem.

ColletteS ColletteS writes: I like the peplum top the best. For those of us who have more curve in the hip area and have difficulty getting tops to fit properly, this top provides the perfect fit. It looks fitted and neat through the body, but provides the ease to fit over our generous curves in a flattering way. It makes for a beautiful, feminine silhouette. Not to leave other body types out; this top will be just as flattering on them. This style makes all women look amazing, and there's nothing wrong with that!!! Jeggings and heels here we come!!! :P

LBS17 LBS17 writes: What a nice opportunity to have this chance. I can see myself in all the outfits. Mother and I both do home made items. The jacket is probably my favorite, it is a style for a large age range. I can see mom making family members several of the pictured clothes. Good luck to everyone.

thimblewell thimblewell writes: I appreciate the clean, classic lines of the pants, which I would make and style with the modern peplum top and Chanel-inspired jacket. The bust darts on the jacket, 3/4 sleeves and the overall finished look inspires me to try it instead of other boxier jacket patterns that I've seen. In different fabrics and colors, this can be the base for a solid capsule wardrobe for work.(16-24)

Colorful Colorful writes: My favorite garment in this selection is the short sleeve, above the knee dress. The flared skirt will hide my large abdomen and will allow me to engineer in the perfect fit with the princess seams in the bodice. This dress also offers many design options of color blocking or adding interesting contrasting fabric prints on the side panels and raglan sleeves. Great pattern to complement my full figured petite body frame. (Size 16-24)

CKPaz CKPaz writes: The peplum top is definitely a winner; however, I would pick the dress and jacket as my favorite. The skirt of the dress would drape nicely, I think, following the flow of the peplum. I would also make the jacket, which tops off the dress, stylish but simple. Simplicity patterns give great results!

I would then make a work version in light gray with white collar to go with cigarette pants and ballet flats. (8-16)

The nipped in waist and volume at the high hip give curves to those without any and hide that extra slice of apple pie for those of us who've indulged. It's a flattering style for all ages.
