I haven’t found New Look patterns to be so special lately, but the new spring ones are certainly worth a second look; here are my faves:
Way to go Simplicity/New Look!
Also, here is a VERY COOL Technical tip, especially if you’re having a hard time grabbing images. This works on a PC, not sure if there is a MAC equivalent.
Go to All Programs, Accessories, then find the Snip Tool. This tool helps you grab screen images. You can save them as jpegs (as I did for the pattern images above), or other formats or e-mail them to yourself or others. I love importing the pic into a Word file at work then adding text & graphics. This way you can take just the images that you want without having to do a screen capture with all the header bars.
Try it! You’ll love it!
Sewing Update: I finished a version of Vogue 1250 today, which I shortened to top length. I’ll post a bit later when I can get my pics off my camera!
