My Image Spring/Summer 2012

Woo! It’s time again for another issue of the twice-yearly, quadra-lingual pattern magazine My Image!

This sheath dress is one of my favourites from this issue. It’s kinda hard to see the details with the print, but take a look at the tech drawing! I also really like this sleeveless cowl top which would be great in a lightweight viscose jersey, and there’s also a shorts pattern here if you wear them (I don’t!).

I also totally love this yellow cap sleeve sheath dress – check out those amazing scoop darts! (This pattern is also shown on the cover, fyi)

Here you can see a knit dresses from this issue, plus a great pair of trousers and jacket. I love the tech drawing for these trousers, but it’s really difficult to see the pocket details in any of the photos – in most cases the top is covered by a tunic top, and this pair are made up in such a wild print that it’s hard to see much…

Here’s another view of that awesome sheath dress, but this time colourblocked, which really gives great waist definition

Here are those same trousers that I love again (though covered up by the tunic, boo!) and a dress with a fantastic neckline similar to that Vogue Roland Mouret Galaxy dress I sewed years ago (and still wear!)

But (like Reading Rainbow), you don’t have to take my word for it – you can browse through the whole magazine here or you can view just the tech drawings here.

There were a few other exciting announcements along with this issue – the people behind My Image will be starting a standalone envelope pattern line (details in March), and the sister magazine, Young Image, now contains patterns for boys and teens in addition to the smaller girl sizes they’ve featured for a while now.

All this talk of MyImage reminded me that there was that coat/jacket from the Winter 2011 issue that I really wanted to make last Fall but never quite got around to. So it’s currently being prepped for interlining and interfacing! Exciting!
