I'm mostly uninspired by the January magazine, but there are still a few pieces I'm considering.
First the line drawings.
And the views at a glance:
I liked dress 109, but there is no way that I would ever make it for myself. Besides it being sleeveless I don't think it would be that flattering on anyone that is very curvy.
Dress 110 is nice. I wonder how it would look if I added the sleeve equivalent of a dicky. Is there a word for that?
I also like top 116, but it doesn't seem particularly special to me.
I really liked the plus sized top 130 on the cover.
And 133 intrigues me, but it may just be the pattern of the fabric that I like.
The costume patterns cracked me up. I especially thought the USA astronaut stuff was amusing considering we don't really have a program anymore.
Next months preview didn't really draw me in either. I don't exactly see a trend of outside pockets catching on at all.
