New patterns

Wow, I’m just a posting fiend recently.

Hot Patterns announced 6 new patterns and their new ‘Metropolitan’ line today. Some cute and very wearable options, and apparently HP has improved their directions and now include illustrations.

They also announced that the following Wong-Singh-Jones patterns are going to be discontinued by the end of December: Shanghai Tunic, Sari Tuxedo Blouse, Nirvana Twinset, Bollywood Dress, Maharajah Jacket and Buddha Baby Skirts. I’ve had my eye on the Maharajah jacket so I may need to grab it soon; not sure if I’m going to get any of the new patterns while I’m at it.

Also, on the crafty/holiday angle, the new pattern at BurdaStyle this week is an apron pattern. Print this one out, grab some cute printed fabrics, and make gifts for your whole list!
