Stylearc Patterns are here!

It's been a very busy week what with celebrating birthdays, embroidery club, finishing items for upcoming deadlines (still not done with that), and teaching.  So when my patterns arrived, it was a welcome diversion.  So without further ado, here are my choices:

I thought this top had lots of color blocking possibilities.  Not sure about the pockets on the hips, but a princess-line Tee is pretty cute.

I LOVE the look of this Tee with a built-in cami.  I will probably make it not so form-fitting as I just don't need everyone to see my lumps and bumps.  LOL.
The Suzie was my freebie.  It has possibilities.  You can make this as fitted or as loose as you please by just not using the darts.
I have been drooling over this blouse ever since I found Stylearc.  I see color blocking here and also (a real biggie for me) I see lots of embroidering going on with this one.  Tone-on-tone embroidery on the yoke and front panels.  Yum!

I was really intrigued with this style pant.  The side seams are moved to the front of the pant.  Cute!  I think I'll have to have several pair to wear with some the of tunics I plan on making. 

This pattern could even double as winter cycling pants if I can find the right fabric.

So, what do you think?  Have any of you made the Stylearc plunge?  And what did you think of the one size in the pattern?  I ordered my typical size 16 fulling expecting to make room for my hips.  I ordered an 18 in the Wallis pant.

That's all I've got for today...


  1. What a super collection of patterns! So, which one will you start on???

  2. Can't wait to see them all made up!

  3. They all look really nice - look forward to seeing you make them up

  4. Nice selection! I love -- but don't have -- the Victoria blouse. You'll make a stunning version, I'm sure.

  5. I think I'm going to try the either the Victoria or the Wallis pant. It will be fun. Got to get a few other things off my plate first though!

  6. I really like StyleArc patterns -- great design. I just wish the instructions were a bit more detailed! I've learned to only make those that need little or no instruction. BTW, the Wallis pants are great -- fit more like leggings than pants, though. The Elle pants are great also.
