Well, there seem to be an overabundance of t-shirts and t-shirt dresses in this magazine. Snore. Once I got past that whole "Family Holiday" section, there were some real winners that I absolutely adore.
Top 101 is cute with that double-breasted button closure and bottom tie with casing. I'm not especially fond of the sequin trip it's sporting, but otherwise it looks fun and flirty.Top 105 I LOVE. I have been looking for a ruffled front blouse pattern for some recently purchased kelly green charmeuse. Jackpot! Although I think I'll add some button and loop closures to that deep V neckline.
Skirt 125 is another one I'm certain to make up. The bottom flounce is bias cut and the back bow looks a little retro to me. I may even copy the color of their sample and do it in red.
Dress 127 is by far my favorite design in this magazine. The off-the-shoulder arm bands are super sexy and gathered to look like bows. The front inset rectangle really gives it some visual interest, and y'all know how much I like interesting construction lines.
But, I'm taking a pass on this month's many do-it-yourself projects and accessories. How about you? What do you think is a must-have of these new designs?
