So, I'm on the mailing list for SewingPatterns.com and this morning I found an email in my inbox from them promoting a $1.49 USD per pattern offer (with no limits on the amount purchased) for a new line of patterns by Simplicity.
Being a curious sort I clicked onto the link to see what all the fuss was about.
The new line is called 'SewSimple' and it appears to be a range of some basic styles for 'Misses' and 'Girls'.

However - NADA! I searched all over the Simplicity site and there is no mention on this range anywhere!?! I'm thinking that sewingpatterns.com might of accidentally jumped the gun and posted the information ahead of schedule maybe? I even tried searching for the new pattern numbers and that drew a blank too.
Now, the Simplicity 'SewSimple' range is NOT the same as it's 'It's So Easy' stuff - that is unless there's some secret master plan to phase that line out ;)! They have different logos and brand colours (see below):
Next, I thought I'd try searching Google for any other news on the new range and all I could come up with was a range sold through the BMV group called 'Sew Simple Patterns' (mainly aprons, and wall hangings), or a small independent line from a site called sew-simple.com.
So, it seems to me that there's a bit of a confusing message going out here, and not only that - but the possibility of some mix-ups down the line about ownership of brand-names LOL!
