Today I sat in the garden in the sunshine with a large cup of coffee and the four Knip Mode magazines.
Of the 4 magazines, September 2009 had the most items I could almost immediately see me wearing, with February 2008 (from Jenni) having almost as many. The two more recent issues April and June 2010 were rather disappointing, though I find summer frustrating with Burda and RTW as well, lots of shorts/short skirts and sleeveless things and hardly anything that someone with fat arms and legs could wear to the office.
Also what's with the carrot pants? I just cannot see them being flattering on my pear shaped lower body.
June does have a swimsuit pattern which looks quite interesting, though I am not planning to sew one at the moment, though I do have some bright emerald green swimsuit fabric in stock somewhere.
Anyway as with any new pattern company, generally I find the best approach is to sew something simple as a test and see how far you differ from their sloper, so I need to find a simple top with sleeves, a simple skirt and some basic trousers across the 4 mags and make some trail garments.
