It’s catch up time again, for Patrones, please excuse the lack of words, starting with issue 307:
I’ve been a bit less enthusiastic about Patrones lately, I think it’s just been a little bit too casual and since I am back working full-time my eye is drawn more to work-appropriate patterns but there are still some great items.
Actually this dress (#11) would be great for work, the collar makes me think of a tuxedo and would look really nice in shiny black as a contrast.
And here is a full suit outfit complete with blouse – I like the pleated insert panel, adds a nice touch to a simple item.
Capes are everywhere here, or they were, now summer is slowly eradicating them along with the heavy coats, but I kind of want one…
A couple of flirty romantic dresses, I really like #27 even thought an empire line with pleats usually makes me look pregnant, maybe in a super light-weight fabric it would hang more flat.
…and some cute kiddies to finish off
Issue 308 is the Autumn Special:
A nice classic dress
The white skirt has some interesting pleating. I don’t know why, maybe it’s just me, but this model is looking really evil and what is with those glasses?! But I do really like the long vest/jacket, I need one of those.
Love the pleating and collar of this blue top (#20)
And this one is pretty fab too, Jacquie made an amazing version of this top and shares how she tackled the collar, you should got take a look.
Next month (or this month, when it finally arrives) is moving towards winter (but looking out the window today summer is settling in quite nicely), we have masculine winter trends, print dresses, a selection of skirts and chic coats for everyone.
