I just received these new patterns and I am so excited about them. Have you seen them? I didn't know these were designed by Liesl Gibson of Sew Lisette, the designer of the adorable children's patterns, Oliver + S. I thought Simplicity finally listened to what people (Peapod's customers at least) wanted. The package covers show better choices of fabric and styling. Hence more inspirational! I haven't tried any of them yet, but they look simple enough for beginner sewers (well, that's why I purchased them). The jacket or shirt dress might be a bit intimidating for the beginners, but I think they are still beginner-friendly after making rather easier tops. So let's start sewing girls. I've already heard feedback that the Portfolio tunic (#2245) is so cute and easy to make. Can't wait to try them myself!
