Less awesome is that my third lot is yet to arrive (the biggest bad boy of them all) and I am finding it difficult to be patient. I wants it now! I have to keep reminding myself that given it is travelling from the states it will probably take at least another three weeks. *grump grump*
Until then I'll review the other hundred plus patterns that I've committed to making. #pure lunacy.
Style: Simplicity 6501
Size: 6 & 8
Would I have bought it? No. A 70s pattern has to work quite hard to get me and this isn't flamboyant enough.
First thoughts: I strongly dislike version one, and solely because of the sleeves with the crazy ass points (why?). However version two with the long sleeves is really growing on me.
Style: Style 4636
Would I have bought it? Maybe, when I was ten this is how I thought you were meant to dress as an adult.
First thoughts: I love the floaty, flirty, romanticism of this pattern. I think there is a strong chance it could look mental when made up though. I'm looking forward to the made version because I can pretend to be a princess!
Difficulty: Hard (aside from the pattern there will need to be a lot of grading up to get it to fit).
Style: Style 1111
Would I have bought it? Nope. I like my nightwear a little less subtle than this.
First thoughts: The shorter versions have potential, although they're a bit Mary Sue
Style: Simplicity 6034
Would I have bought it? YES
First thoughts: How beautiful is this? And not just because the photo shows a floozy lush having an amazing time. I think it looks very 40s and I heart the puff sleeves. I want to make it in a floral sateen.
Style: Simplicity 6736
Size: Size 8 (Girl)
Would I have bought it? Putting aside the 'no children' thing, probably not. These dresses look mental.
First thoughts? I think what I find objectionable is the high necks, especially with frills.
Difficulty: Medium / Hard
