New Look Patterns

These out of print New Look Patterns (and one Simplicity) were offered less expensively in a UK sewing magazine as they are end of line. The selection is limited but I picked things I thought I would use.

Wardrobe patterns are always a favourite, because you get more garments within the package, they've been planned to work together as outfits, and whilst you may buy them for one particular item, another may turn out to be very handy later.
I liked the one above (New Look 6947) for the jacket pattern, but it also includes, sleevesless top, dress and wide legged trousers.
New Look 6609 (above) has a a jacket blouse, slightly less wide legged trousers a nice gored skirt and even a little bag.
New Look 6011 has in interesting blouse, a straight panelled skirt and a different style of trousers.
The above patterns would give me lots of work appropriate options.
New Look 610 is a relaxed casual blouse good with jeans for a dress down Friday.
And Simplicity 1889 looked like a good way to use small scraps of fabric to make outfits for new babies amongst friends/family but perhaps also to increase my charity craft offerings.

I've not idea whether I will actually get to sew any of these any time soon (due to the move) but I am having a nice time planning what I might do.

Have you used any of these patterns? And if so what did you think?

Thanks Ruthie

Very nice selections. I don't think I have any of those, but I may and just don't remember. Yep, the pattern stash is still out of control. Hope you get to sew soon, but understand about the move. I hate moving! and packing!

I don't have any of these patterns, but I love New Look. Their skirts fit quite well with minimal adjustments. I hope your move goes well so that you can sew some more!
