Lots of highlights in the November issue of Knipmode: a corset, designs for (faux) leather and a mix & match dress pattern. The cover shouts 'Feest', which is the Dutch word for party. Hurry up, go sew yourself a dress in Christmas lights fabric! I don't know about you, to me it feels like dressing up as a Christmas tree, but lots of people seem to like the bright lights print. I do like the neckline of the shirt on the left!

It's not all about party wear this month. There is also a collection based on Pantone's colour of the year Marsala containing some practical day to day wear patterns. I love the colour mix.
My personal favourite from this issue is the mix & match dress pattern. A bodice with six different neckline options, four different sleeves and five skirt options. Going over your personal fit adjustments just once and make over a 100 different styles? Yes, please!
If you download one of the pdf patterns of the dresses 7-11 all other options will be added for free.
The patterns marked with @ are available as pdf:
My must-have list is not as big as my list from the September and October issues, but I can live with that. (Just as well!) It's my impression that there are a lot of patterns in this magazine that appeal to younger sewists, without being overly simplified and aimed at the beginners-only-segment. Feest!
