Who's Drafting Patterns These Days?

*sigh* So...Simplicity recently released their Winter/Holiday 2012 patterns. They should have just not bothered.

McCall's also released their Winter/Holiday collection. There are a couple of blouse patterns that I found cute.
6659 has 4 different versions. I like 3 of them.

Lace Overlay Dress + Pattern Review

I apologize in advance; this post is going to be quite lengthy.

So I needed a dress for a special service at church and I have been coveting lace overlay dresses for a while now. I really wanted to have scalloped edges on the hem and sleeves but wasn't sure if I knew how to pull it off. I found this post on Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing and that was all the info I needed for how to pull off the scalloped edges.
