I think the general consensus among BWOF subscribers is that the February 2009 issue was awesome. So I was expecting luke-warm designs for the next month. But, I found just as many patterns that I love in this month's issue.
This is blouse 106A. I love the neckline! Expect to see this soon as I just ordered some stretch poplin from Denverfabric.com for spring.
I like this little knit dress - 102 - with asymmetrical pleats that hold the ribbon belt in place. It's got very interesting construction and is the sewing course for this issue. (Otherwise I'm not sure I could figure it out!)
Up next - dress 107 - reminds me of the failed red Christmas eve dress I made back in December, except that the "sleeves" don't extend down the arm as much. Maybe I'll have more success with this one. And I'm not a huge pockets-in-the-fitted-dress fan, so will probably leave those out.
Just a simple and cute fitted jacket - 111 - except the front darts and pockets have some unique seaming. Hey, my career use to be building construction - I enjoy figuring out the way things go together.
I do not like this top, but the pants 117B are kinda nice. Sometimes having plain designs comes in handy when you need a simple garment to match something specific.
This skirt - 104B - looks pretty simple but has interesting curved construction lines. I like it a lot.
Not sure I'll make tunic 103, but think it's unique with that large curved collar. This is for a knit. I can see it with calf-length leggings.
Okay, so every girl needs a trenchcoat, right? I bought one years ago because I thought it was a wardrobe basic. The problem is that I bought one in pink. It matches nothing! I hardly have any pink in my closet. I'm seriously in love with this one - 119 - but have no clue when I'll get around to it. Maybe in the fall? There's a whole bunch of fabric and notions to be purchased in order to make it.
And lastly, this pattern is plus sized, but I think skirt 125 with its triple flounces is very chic. I'd have to cut it down to my size, but I can figure that out, right? It can't be that difficult, right???
Did I miss any of your favorites?
