And even more new pattern!

Well I guess that Hot Patterns has a new pattern line. I usually get their e-mails but I didn’t get anything on these. pout pout....

So I am not exactly sure when they released them. I just happened to get sale e-mail from Gorgeous Fabrics this morning & she mentioned one of the new patterns.

Anyhoo, they look pretty great!

The is called Metropolitan & here is what HP has to say about it:

“We adore dressing up for work! But please nothing to strict, nothing too formal, just chic pieces that make those dreary Monday mornings a little more bearable. Try these gorgeous styles, designed to deal with the vexing & dreaded “Business Casual” dress code, but just as fabulous made up in more casual fabrics for weekend loveliness….”

Well let’s have a look see……

Sleek & Chic Skirt

Urbanista! Coat-Dress

These are my favorites!

Superfly Skirt

Get your baaad self into these Superfly Skirts, designed for firm but drapey fabrics like denim, corduroy and cotton velvet-but also pretty darn fabulous in heavy crepe, linen or tropical wool.
Unlined, narrow A-line skirt has darts front & back, and a contrast faced waist and hemline. Skirt sits on the natural waist and features center front & back seams, front fly zipper fastening, belt carriers & optional (but oh-so-very highly recommended!) top stitching. Short skirt finishes at the knee; longer version finishes at mid-calf.
Wear this great Skirt with our Metropolitan Tie Me Down Top and Seriously Stylin’ Jacket for a groovy workday outfit, or team it with our Weekender Sunshine Tops and a yummy cardigan for a casual look.

This skirt would look so cute with my new "yeah for my new job shoes!"

Criterion Blouse

Totally gorgeous blouse, designed for fluid, drapey fabrics like crepe de chine, charmeuse, rayon, georgette, washed silk and lightweight crepe-but also stunning in a stable single knit or a silk(y) jersey.
Semi-fitted Blouse has shaped side seams and front rouleaux loop & button fastening. Blouse has front yoke with gathers and cutaway front neckline with collar band and collar, finished with a tie. Back has a yoke and a center back released pleat. Gently gathered, buttoned cuffed sleeves finish above the elbow or at the wrist.
Wear this glamorous Blouse with our Weekender Jean Jeanius Trouser Jeans and top with a cosy cropped cardigan, or team it with our Metropolitan Seriously Stylin’ Jacket and Sleek & Chic Skirt for a super-stylish, dressy/casual outfit.

Seriously Stylin’ Jacket

Want a feminine but sharp jacket to wear with jeans, with pants, with skirts? Try this seriously stylin’ little number, designed for firm but soft fabrics like denim, corduroy and cotton velvet-but also divine in a wool boucle, tweed or silk brocade.
Lined, semi-fitted Jacket has rounded collar & rever, and shaped waistband with half-belt and buttons at the back. Jacket features panel seams, gathers above & below the waistband and oversized button front closure. Gathered, slightly flared wrist length sleeves have mock button vent.
Wear this yummy Jacket with your favorite tailored pants or skirt for a fabulous soft suit, or team it with our Weekender Jean Jeanius Trouser Jeans for a really funky, fabulous business-casual look.

Tie Me Down Tops

All tied up in these sweetly pretty and ultra-wearable knit tops, designed for soft, fluid knits with a little stretch-try silk(y) jersey or a drapey t-shirting.
Semi-fitted Top has center front seam and a tie neck. Top features shaped hemline, with shirring at the shoulders and center back for a fabulous fit. Choose from short gathered flutter sleeves, or full length gathered sleeves with a shirred cuff. Top pulls on over the head for super-easy dressing.
You just know you’ll wear these lovely tops day in, day out...wear them to soften up a slick Pants or Skirt Suit to the office, try them with a neatly fitted cardigan-and-skirt combo for a go-anywhere outfit, or channel your inner vintage Diva and team them with our Weekender Jean Jeanius Trouser Jeans for a pretty retro-chic look

I really like this blouse because it is for knits but I can't decide if it is different enough from the Criterion Blouse, wich can also be made from knits. I LOVE the sleeves on the the Criterion Blouse blouse, but the shirring at the shoulders of the Tie Me Down shirt is a super cute detail too! Oh what to do........
