  1. memarston April 10th

    I really like 1467 for it's very wearable shapes!

  2. Clodi March 27th

    Definitely 1467 is my style. My body is pear shape and these patterns define the waist which is the focus area for this body shape. I think I even have the appropriate fabric for each of the patterns.

  3. User avater danidooley March 26th

    I really like 1467. This pattern is very attractive. The samples are made in such cute fabric and the model is adorable but more importantly the style is fresh and current. I like the peplum-ish detail on the jacket and the released pleats and lowered waistline on the skirt and pants. I prefer not to wear sleeveless tops so I really wish this pattern had a cap sleeve option on the top but that is something I can add on my own. It would also be nice to have some invisible pockets hiding behind the gathering on the jacket front. I'll probably add that too.

  4. Elizam March 26th

    1467 is a real winner! The pattern is very versatile and could be used to increase my wardrobe for casual or business dress wear. There are so many options to mix and watch. This pattern would be a great addition to get started on my spring/summer wardrobe.

  5. CarmenW March 22nd

    My style is business casual. Pattern 1467 lends itself to very versatile changes in weather by utilizing linens, cottons, silks and for fall a lightweight or all season wool.

  6. TJwisdom March 22nd

    1467 is great for spring and summer. The pants are so flowing and comfortable. The skirt and sleeveless top can go for casual with flats or heels. And with some added jewelry, simple gorgeous.

  7. Berte March 22nd

    My fave style for spring? A relaxed tailored look, perhaps? Not into flounces or ruches, but love relaxed linen trousers and flowing tops and dresses. As well as figure hugging garments. Both 1467 and 2174 look like good fits for me this spring. :-)

  8. Nana55 March 21st

    My style would be relaxed, easy to sew. I can't work anymore so I tend dress in a relaxed way. When I sew I like easy to sew patterns. Linen pants or capris with a flowing top. I like all your patterns here today they can all be sewn to ones style. Your 1621 I will be getting. Thanks for a chance to win

The jacket in a color that would work with several different colors for the pant and top combinations - perfect. Thanks for the opportunity to win this pattern.

  17. User avater Delores10550 March 19th

    I like the pattern 1467 very much. Like to sew, but I don't do much for myself, as I have a hard time fitting the pattern.This one looks like it would be easier to fit and great for summer.

  18. User avater beebusby March 19th

    I like the look of 1467, there are so many ways to make it a wardrobe staple. Great choices......

  19. christaj3 March 19th

    My fave is style 1621. I love the light and flowing dress with an option to add a light sweater which compliments it. And although I absolutely adore the idea of wearing beautiful dresses all Spring & Summer, the truth is that it simply isn't a practical option for me, so having the additional option to pair the same look with a comfy pair of trouser pants would be awesome!

  20. Lisa6 March 18th

  27. User avater thepkl March 18th

    1467 is the dream pattern. The top looks so simple to make and easy to wear and yet at the same time it could be dressy. the pants and the skirt basically the same but easy to fit and then if you want to go to work or dinner that adorable jacket would dress it all up. I could even see this as an elegant evening outfit with the skirt floor length and made in some silky fabric. I love it.

  28. AmberMaeP March 18th

    Loving 1467. I could make the sleeveless shirt and pants in several different fabrics. I can see it being a go to outfit for me.

  29. krisla March 18th

    1467 looks great for me. I want to make several of the blouse and pants.

  30. delirium210 March 18th

    1467, I love the comfy look of the pattern I imagine those pants and skirt with a soft knit, cozy and stylish. I love the top and would use something soft and flowing to pair with the knit pants and have an out fit that can lounge around the house or head to a social event. love it!

  31. Jenerator March 18th

    Love the top and skirt in 1467, and with the addition of the jacket it would make a great work outfit!

  32. User avater Suze March 18th

  38. TwinsMommy March 17th

    I love, love, love style A & B. This would be perfect to add to my work wardrobe. I've decided in the last year to teach myself to sew and have been taking online classes from Craftsy and pouring over my Threads magazine to learn new techniques and this pattern would be perfect!!

  43. User avater ali0423 March 17th

    I love 1467 and how versatile it is. I love "A" with "B" it looks like a perfect Spring I just need the warmer weather.

  44. SueBee256 March 17th

    1467 I like wardrobe outfits. Easy to mix and match. Need new Spring clothes and hate off the rack.

  45. User avater cbclark March 17th

    #1467 is the perfect spring wardrobe capsule. Jacket, and the skirt in a solid. Top and skirt in a floral. Add a couple tops in complimentary fabric you have a week's worth of wardrobe combinations. Work up the top and slacks in activewear fabric and you are ready for the week. Love this pattern.

  46. User avater cbclark March 17th

    #1467 is the complete spring wardrobe capsule. Jacket, Slacks, in a solid fabric; top and skirt in a floral, another top or two in a complimentand there you have it a week's worth of style in one pattern envelope. The top and pants could also be made up into active wear. Love this pattern.

  47. User avater pandora57 March 17th

    I like easy to wear clothing in spring, something that can take me from cold,wet and windy weather straight through to sunny and warm.Separates do it for me.I am loving Peplums, A line skirts. Printed trousers,pastel colours and a bit of tailoring.

  48. user-2003399 March 17th

    Lovely patterns to sew for spring!

  49. user-2482621 March 17th

    I thought I had already commented. I like 1467. Of I don't win, I will buy. My style is smart casual, classic rather than frilly and these pieces would work well for me. I need a new wardrobe! I like the pants and sleeveless top best.

  50. user-2482621 March 17th

    1467 looks like a lovely pattern. If I don't win it, I will buy it. My style is smart casual, fairly structured and not frilly and I could really make these pieces work for me, to provide almost a complete new wardrobe on their own. My favourite pieces are the trousers and the sleeveless top.

  51. User avater amh61771 March 17th

    My granddaughter would love 1656 and I would love to make it for her

  52. Lawana55 March 17th

    1621 with the highlow hem dress and jacket would be my favorite

  53. user-1115414 March 17th

    Ι just love 1467, it's a full wardrobe on it's own. I would make all the models twice, once as shown on the envelope and again with using solid colour instead of print and print instead of solid! A full wardrobe, with lots of choices and suitable for every hour of the day. I want this pattern so much!!!

  54. kajero March 17th

    S1467 -- The jacket would be perfect for me -- Princess seams in front, darts in back, and a peplum on the sides and back. I even like pink. I would pair the jacket with the coordinating skirt of the same fabric and the sleeveless blouse made of a silky fabric. I would be ready for the big spring event, of which I will have to find one.

  55. User avater SanHarvey March 17th

    I would like to say my favorite out would be the skirt with the top and jacket, I can even convert the jacket part which is a peplum style to the skirt and give it a different feel and do the same for the top that is why I like the Simplicity pattern 1467.

  56. Elainelalaine March 17th

    I like pattern #1467. I think it would make a great wardrobe for anyone, and am thinking of making some of the pieces for my mother. It looks like the pieces can be dressed up or down, and would be great for almost any occasion.

    Stylish details perfect for all body types. Can see making these pieces in different fabrics.

    I really like 2174. That's just the kind of dress I want to wear.

  64. pt6256 March 17th

  81. MichelleAP March 17th

    Looking forward to light weight, casual, comfortable skirts in bright colors...really ready for warmer weather and no snow. My style is fun, casual, feminine with a twist of creative, quirky or retro/vintage.

  82. User avater chelosunny March 17th

    Once you have determined your style the choice is easy. I am classic therefore 1467 is great for me. Thx.

  83. User avater ctdamsel March 17th

    Separates are always a good choice and the princess seaming and nipped in waist is attractive for all figures. Also the jacket and top with the slacks is perfect for work.

  84. i'm holly March 17th

    I love to sew a lot of print skirts for summer to wear with shells and a jacket or a cardigan and a cute pair of sandals. Skirts are quick to sew and require small amounts of fabric. Once the patterns are fine-tuned to your liking, Monday night sew skirt for Tuesday and so on.

  85. Emmab2003 March 17th

    Love 1467, especially the jacket and top to go under it!
