Yes, it's a current release! Check it out on patternreview.com! It makes the cutest aprons! I have it but haven't made it yet.

I'm happy about this one!

I've had my eye out for a nice basic tie-neck blouse for a while, and it's so nice that this one also includes that cute cutout top. Kind of odd too; they are totally different styles, all different pattern peices- I'm used to seeing patterns where the 'views' have more in common than not. But I'm not complaining!

Just posted this in recent purchases as well. It's the details that made me want to buy this pattern, despite the fact that I've discovered I hate working with these really old patterns! The results are worth it but they give me so much anxiety and it takes me longer to start them because of copying the pattern, ironing out pieces, trying to fold everything back up, etc. I love the ease of working with a repro.. nice heavy paper that doesn't tear easily.

I also bought this wonderful pattern from Lauren:

Love this. I've been eyeing another Butterick dress pattern that has some great "giant stitching" details on it as well. Love the open collar version!

Thought you gals would get a kick out of this.

I unfolded one of those old Simplicity patterns I got. I expected it to be hard to unfold, even some disintegration, but I didnt know these patterns would be 3 sheets of tissue with perforated pieces! :eusa_doh:

So not simply a few paragraphs of info on the back of the pattern envelope for instructions, but now I have to navigate torn dirty and in some cases unrecognizable markings in tissue to hopefully make the pattern piece the right shape.

Oh the things we do for fabulous dresses.
