    I was so looking forward to the June issue / patterns, but I’m highly disappointed :-( The fabrics are great, but the patterns are so basic & bland – I think the fabrics make the collection more interesting & I would probably consider making the 1st pink midi dress, that’s all… I hope there will be more exciting patterns coming from June issue.

    I find these are pretty shapeless and bland.

    I love everything. The pinks and pale yellows, blues and lilacs look sharp, not washed out. The natural cottons are crisp and cool for summer. The paper bag shorts look comfy and elegant at the same time, the fuller cut skirt will work with my body shape and the little bomber jacket is the perfect finishing touch. My only adjustment would be to make the skirt of the shirt dress a little fuller -maybe have it slightly gathered to the hip seam. Not excessively gathered and bunchy but a little more full at the hip seam than in the picture.

    What’s up with the yellow shirt and skirt combo? There MUST have been a way to photograph this that would have both given some idea of what the clothing looks like being worn and not made the clothes look like something that my 10 year old self would have constructed to wear in 1991 (believe me, this is not a good thing). Maybe with the model, I don’t know, standing up?! The shirt dress is kind of neat and has the wheels in my head churning…
