During the week there was no time for sewing, I did buy the new Knip Mode September issue and the Patrones no. 295. Knip mode has been reviewed in the meantime by Melissa with a lot of pictures already.

Patrones has a mix of fall patterns and summer/festive dresses.


As I already mentioned, no plus-size patterns in this issue, a special plus-size magazine is announced at the last page.

I love the jackets in the issue, there are a lot of them and some nice pants patterns too. Of course I will not get to make them all (if any) but one can dream. The most special one is this one, with the special darts and welts/bound buttonholes at the center.

Two others with nice lines.


The dresses are absolutely not for me: mostly bare shoulders, too much summer, not my style. But nice for others.



To conclude: houndstooth is a big hit again. Both Knip Mode and Patrones show a coat with it.


When I was at Macy’s in New York (how crazy that sounds now) I saw a coat in about the same weave as the fabric I bought in Paris last year. Guess what is on my list to sew this fall.


  1. Fabulous! That jacket, #32, is that I double collar? I love the double breasted one too. Now I must find this issue.

  2. You are right, the dresses are strangely not autumnal! The jackets are great, though.

  3. Hey!
    I saw our origami dress in yellow on the norwegian crown princess in a magazine that my mother bought. Looked good on her too!


It's always nice to have feedback on what I'm posting about. All comments, also positive criticism, are always highly appreciated.
