My Momma told better shop around...

Seems all the pattern companies were trying to dump their old inventory before bringing out the spring pretties.  And I took advantage.  Here is my haul from Simplicity/New Look.


 I like the uncomplicated simplicity for this tunic and dress.  Although I think the white band looks like a giant band-aid.


 I bought this pattern for one thing and one thing only.  The simple little camisole top.


I love the flowiness of this top and would love to make it in a nice challis print.  I also like the longer camisole.


 I just think this is a great summer top.


 I have been eying up cape patterns for a long time and finally thought the price was right.  I like the shorter one with the tie front.


I bought this pattern also for one thing only....the just kidding, the dress.  I have always wanted to make a copy of this Barbie dress "# 1649  Lunch on the Terrace circa 1966-67"

Okay, I would skip the big a$$ hat, but I have always loved this dress.  So when I saw this pattern I jumped for it.  Now I just need some green gingham and matching polka dot fabric!


I'm not a pocket girl but I love the ones on version B.

So this is my booty from the Simplicity sale.  A few days later they trotted out the spring line for New Look....nothing jumped out at me so I'm safe from more pattern procurement for awhile.
