How many of you are Scandal fans?  I have to admit to not ever watching it! Sorry.  For those of you fans out there, The Limited has a collection from the TV show.

and this Marfy Pattern 3200 looks like the inspiration coat with either shortening or elminating the back cape.  Oh, yes add a belt, too

A good pattern is from Hot Patterns -

This looks like a good pattern, from a new-to-me pattern company.  Anyone sewn an In-House pattern?  This one is the Diana, which I like better than the RTW one, Diana has cuffs on the sleeves

  1. I've gotten a lot of use out of simp 1463. It's a great value with so many different looks.

  2. I have that simp Pattern and this is another variation that I can use. I really enjoy your Friday post...I know it takes a lt of time for you.

  3. Great line up of inspiration. Love the window pane cape coat.

  4. Wow these patterns are spot on! Thanks for doing the leg work.

  5. I'll have to try the McCall's pattern to make a dress like yours Lori, it is very cute! I also love the Marfy coat! Great design!

  6. Thank you for this post. It's fun to see how the pattern industry is keeping up with rtw trends and fashions.
