Pattern Picks - Kwik Sew & Vogue Fall
I love ogling new patterns - so many possibilities!
Kwik Sew has some cute offerings for little girls: KS3906 includes a made to match dress for 18 in dolls. KS3905 is equally sweet.
The KS3900 organizer pattern is really cute. I like the way they hung these up:
Unfortunately, the offerings for ladies are rather lacking IMO. Luckily, Vogue has come through with some lovely things:
V1252 looks fantastic when you see the drawing (the print on the made up version obscures the cool draping effect.
I also think this one is pretty nice - V1257.
V8750 is a nice selection of well-cut skirts.
V8742 looks like it would be figure-friendly.
V8743 - love when they do cup sized patterns - makes altering much easier!
Finally V8747 looks like a great button-front shirt.
