I like that AK jacket, too.
Those GL jeans are great.
I really like the SB Today's Fit knit tops, though I'm not sold on the ruffles yet:



The detail on the Tom and Linda Platt is pretty and interesting:



The AK jacket and the SB knit tops would fit right into my wardrobe, so if I don't already have similar patterns, I'll probably pick them up sometime.

I just looked at the lines of the Tilton skirt and rather like it.  I kind of like the Paco Peralta skirt too. I've not been much interested in that designer.  Too formal/suitish for my taste. I'm drawn to the Kathryn Brenne cape as well. I only buy when all four lines on sale so it might be a while.

New Winter McCall's are up. Seems there are fewer and fewer new patterns in each offering. The indies must be doing well! Oh well, saves some $ and space!  There seems to be a lot of loungewear making up this collection.

Only a couple I'd consider, jackets, 7693 https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7693, really simple but I like shawl collars and the way this one is sewn into the bottom portion vs being a lapel is interesting. Also like the way you can easily, practically mindlessly mix fabrics (think leftovers!) and have a simple "throw over anything" jacket.  The other is 7694  https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7694 - a new version of the moto jacket. I like moto a lot but just don't want a short closely fitted jacket anymore - this one nicely takes advantage of the style but adds length and some ease.  And while I'm not really into pj's and loungewear... this keeps catching my eye - 7696 https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/new-sewing-patterns

Perhaps I should buy McCallís 7695 as I wear longer versions of Views C and D all the time.  And havenít ever made one.  I have an old Jalie pattern for íthe real thingí, but it looks rather challenging !

So, I'm either going to a ball or the gym. I've given up on BMV.
Vogue just isn't what it used to be, with all the attention to detail, which is what lured me in, in the first place.
I give up! End of an era! Cancelling my subscription to Sew Today too!
 :'( :'( :'(
Ottobre, Sew Over It, Winifred Aldrich and Helen Joseph-Armstrong is where I'm looking in future.

Thoughts on "new patterns" - I am beginning to think that when one has been sewing as long as I have (made first dress I wore to school at the age of 11 and I'm now in that 60's age range) that perhaps when I see the "new patterns" I see things that I have seen before.  In almost 50 years, I think the bones of most patterns I have seen/worn/and may still be in my stash of "vintage" patterns I made at one time. 

So, often times, other than how a pattern fits....skin tight (or as my Dad would have said "melted and poured into that one") or looser fit... there are very few "new" things out there in fashion and, thus, in the pattern world.

I'd seen the notification of new patterns but hadn't looked until just now. I see several I like.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7695 - this was a vest that was ALL OVER pinterest in the last year or so. Smart of them to create a pattern for it.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7706 - An interesting choice to publish Katherine Brenne's spat pattern in McCalls, rather than Vogue. This will go over well with co-splay costumers and is a fun accessory.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7693 - I also quite like this jacket, Karen. It's not your run-of-the-mill short jacket, thank goodness, with the shawl/fold back collar running into the bottom panel. It would be interesting to stick pockets in that horizontal seam, rather than the side seam. I am so grateful when I see different or new design lines that I can wear.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7689 - I love this top. Love. I'd be careful to sew the chiffon so that it looked like another layer, not an attachment. Meaning I'd attach it a half in or an inch above the hem of the opaque top.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7681 - I've sure seen this dress before, but I have to admit that this would be a good look for me.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7694 - I LOVE this jacket/vest, particularly the longer version.

https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m7696 - Karen, this also caught my eye. Years ago I was looking for a bed jacket pattern and this is a very pretty one. I could see snuggling up in a version of this while recuperating. I don't think I'd wear it as a PJ top, though.

I am not a huge consumer of McCalls, but I quite like some of these. And it's nice to see so many new kids patterns, though I have no need for those.  :)

Once more, with pics!

Adorable bed jacket (what a great holiday gift). I wouldn't use this floral, though. I'd use something lush and snuggly:
7696:


Moto jacket/vest with ease in the back:
7694


I like how this looks like its layered, and not like the bottom is just stuck on. I would make the bottom out of chiffon or something equally flow-y, and I'd use a more everyday fabric for the top (rather than a brocade), because I'd wear this to work AND the grocery store!
7689


Love these lines. For me, this ticks the box of something new, design wise. I'd stick in-seam pockets in the horizontal seam:
7693


An interesting choice to release this Kathryn Brenne pattern with McCalls, rather than Vogue. But I can see these take off with the co-splay crowd, so it makes sense. What fun spats, though I'd never wear them over heels. I could see these catch on as regular wear, especially in fall/winter, over leggings. VERY FUN and a chance to play with all my hardware:
7706


I can't be the only one to see this ALL over Pinterest. I, myself, have pinned it. Smart of them to make a pattern for it:
7695


How cute is this with the ruched sleeves? I'd wear that dress as a tunic, too, though with a shorter drawstring (so it wouldn't run into my bustline):
7688:


Not the most exciting or new, but I can rock this one (short and with leggings, of course). I prefer the second view - much less likely for those sleeves to fall into my cereal/soup:
7681


I quite like View F (and ONLY view F) of this top pattern. Though, come to think of it, I don't DO buttons/zippers up the back. I'd find another way.
7687

Ive pinned  several versions of 7681.7693 vest is rght up my alley. Except these days Im looking for patterns with seams to help me during fitting.  Used to love Butterick.  They had the same design lines but with details I preferred and were easier to fit and sew than Vogue. Alas my body changed and my fit standards.  Ive not bought a Big 4 pattern in some time.  Been years since I was able to fit them.  But I do look to see what details and styles they have picked up on.


Whoops I lied.  Im working on B5682 a Mom Jean pattern right now and doing pretty good.

New Buttericks are up!

All I can say is that for the first time in a long time, and without having you all change my mind about not wanting many/any - there are a LOT I want! Especially considering there are fewer than two full pages of new patterns, the "on my list" % is huge  :D ::)

I won't go into which/why because I'm too lazy to post pics, but I do wonder if anyone else wonders - what is attractive/intriguing about having drawstrings hanging between your legs in Katherine Tilton's 6520? Sometimes I really like her designs, more often pass, this intrigued me at first as I thought the fabric was a metallic knit and like drawstring collars and some other details... but the strings... hanging in front and back...  ???  Maybe by the time they hit the drawers I'll have an intriguing way to extend them and tie at side and have it look like that's what's supposed to be going on as the stringless one isn't doing anything for me with the slit hanging open around crotch. Maybe I'm just crotchety  8) ;D ::) and decaffeinated right now!

I was thinking the same thing!  As for her other pattern in this release, the first thing that came to mind was, "Are all her shirt patterns beginning to look the same?"

Don't mean to sound down on her, it's just seems more of the same with that one.

Thanks, I didn't want to sound too negative or disapproving either, but agree, Katherine's other new pattern - not sure if maybe I saw a glimpse ahead of time on Facebook or a blog or something - but when I saw it I was sure I had seen it before.  There are a lot of reruns between the BMV brands but not typically with the designers' looks.

I picked up the February/March 2018 issue of VPM at the library this weekend.  It has some interesting patterns: a couple of slim pants with interesting details by K. Brenne and Marci Tilton, 9303 and 9304, though both in knit fabric, and a long line tunic with an asymmetrical hem, 9305.  Love the look though I would likely never make it up.
Nothing showing up on the website yet, they don't even have the magazine preview up. Though they would be up today after the pattern sale was over.

The Early Spring patterns for Mcallís are there
https://mccallpattern.mccall.com/patterns/latest-collections/early-spring
Nothing that excites me, but Iím not into all the current sleeve emphasis - which mainly brings attention down to my hips. . .

I like the sleeves on 7717 not the full one, but the version where the fullness is gathered into a narrow cuff. Still dont like any of the cold shoulder designs just because they make no sense to me. Why cover up my arms if those tender shoulders need cool air?

Nothing there for me either but I don't often stray from the Vogue designers when I buy outside of the independents.  I thought high low hem was pretty much off trend now.  As someone who mostly wears sleeveless the year of the sleeve passed me by and I'm starting to get tired of seeing the cold shoulder.  It seemed like it was a style that was late to Phoenix and now I see them frequently (probably because it's winter) and most people can't really pull the look off in my view.

Vogue 9305 that Susan showed is my favorite of the new bunch of patterns. I also like Vogue 1575, the Sandra Betzina dress.

I like this dress; but have no place to wear it.  I think it would be lovely to wear to a wedding, but have no weddings on my calendar to attend.

I'll likely pick up the Betzina pattern at an upcoming sale.  I seem to collect her patterns and they generally fit me pretty well with few adjustments.

Linda, I like the Bagley Mischka V1579 too -- might need to identify a special evening out that would justify making it.

Elephun, I swear you and I have the same taste!  I also like the Betzina dress V1515 as well.  That could become a staple.

In the UK BMV patterns are very expensive compared to the US, however there's recently been lots of sewing magazines which includes a free envelope pattern in the package with the magazine. I buy them when I like the pattern as its in the newspaper section of the supermarket and convenient for me.

They must be very popular as there are 4 or 5 of them, some better than others.
One I liked enough to try a 6 month subscription, it includes a Butterick or McCall's pattern (sometimes two) each month. I shall wait and see what the first 6 months are like to see if I extend. If there are too many dress patterns I won't bother, I'm more a trousers/top/cardigan sort of person.

I changed my mind and decided I might like V9305 in the short sleeves with some slim legged cotton/lycra pants.  So I got that plus two copies of V9280 a vintage dress.  I think it's gorgeous but I know it will be difficult to fit so I wanted a spare copy.

B6553 has an interesting overlay/coverup. B6564 by Katherin Tilton is an interesting cut it up sew it back together. Couple of nice blouses and some lovely dresses, but no I probably wont be buying.  I have a stack of new patterns to go with a stack of older patterns none of which I am likely to make.

Katherine Tiltonís B 6564 - itís interesting that there are now patterns which are designed to look as if they were made from recycled garments when theyíre not !
In fact thatís the one of this group which does catch my eye  ;D

Our summers are rarely hot, but if they were I would like the B 6552 laced up dress.  Tho I would not take the lacing below my waist.  And it would probably be a major challenge to get the back fit to look good, on me the back could not be a simple flat piece of fabric if the lacing was tight rather than just ornamental. . .

There is an RTW company that prints to make the garments look like that.  I do think it is interesting. Hooe you make it.
