From the US site, the alleged new patterns - some of them look quite familiar and possibly a hangover from the summer issue.

has several possibilities and is there will be more hand holding so far as the instructions are concerned than the similar Burda pattern I liked.

I have finished the first of the three skirts I am hoping to make before I fly out in just over a week. Eek

The colour is a lovely orange and although it looks like a hi-lo hem, it's not.  Because I screwed up the waist radius calculation, I had to take in about 25cm and just improvised two giant tucks centre front and back.

I hope to have pictures of me modelling all the skirts, but maybe after my holiday.  On with finishing number 2.

I've seen sewn one seam of a GIANT circle skirt and want to put in the textile bag.  It's too damn hot and I am dripping with sweat that runs into my eyes.

From the US site, and

From the US website.  An awful lot is just  :\ but I picked out


particularly the floral version as genuinely different.

From the House of Balenciaga

You can buy it for mere £935.00.  One guy on twitter did his own interpretation, which has itself generated a lot of comment.

I was in the Notting Hill Gate area last weekend and saw these

in the window of an vintage shop.  My first thought was that @Ravingdoll would love these.

Patterns Discussion / McCall's pattern sale?

The window of my local fabric shop has a half-price flyer for McCall's.  I've had my eye on

ever since it came out, and this

came on my radar as a possibility for the Balenciaga.
