I took advantage of the recent BMV sale and purchased more patterns (like I really needed them). I actually purchased a few Kwik Sew patterns that I have not purchased since taken over by McCall's. They have not been as appealing to me as they were previously. There were a few new ones that caught my attention. I also purchased one-a vest pattern-that has been in their line up for a number of years.
I liked the look of the red jacket. The pieced jacket looks fairly nice as well; I would use color blocking for this one.
One change made with KS patterns is the pattern paper. Previously it was heavier paper. I found that it stood up well to multiple tracings. The paper now is still white but less heavy.
