    The dark pink dress is flattering and so pretty! The kaftan greenish dress at the end reminds me of the landlords wife on the show Threes’ Company

    These patterns are beautiful. I remember years ago Natalie Portman wore the designer version of the blue cocktail dress with the unusual neckline. That caftan is proof that a simple, kind of weird pattern can be ridiculously beautiful with the right fabric. There’s a short version of it in the same issue that’s super wearable for everyday stuff. The blazer and shorts are cute. These are some great summer patterns. Go 2010!
