I was beyond delighted when I received the latest Hot Patterns newsletter today! I have been complaining to anyone who will listen that the styles, both in the pattern books and in the stores, are just so dull – nothing more than remakes of styles we’ve all seen for the past few seasons. Then, along comes the HP Metropolitan Collection!
I immediately thought of Phyllis when I saw the Sleek & Chic Skirts. This is the perfect serious work skirt!
You’ll have to Tie Me Down to keep me from making these tops! I really love smocking – it isn’t easy to do smocking in such a sophisticated way.
This is a great dress-up-or-down coatdress! It would even work open as a light coat for those of us in the tropics:
The Super Fly Skirt would be fab with boots this fall and winter:
This is the perfect little jacket for me! I ADORE the belted back!
I am seriously IN LOVE with the Criterion blouses! How gorgeous would these be in silk charmeuse?
Now these are patterns I can really get excited about!
