These are the most recent patterns from the 99 cent sales a few weeks ago. Others that I wanted were not available. I have noticed though, that I've been sewing from patterns that have been in my collection for awhile. But I plan on using these soon. Here's what I got:

Butterick 5415 - I like all the views of this dress. It could be a transitional dress for the season change. Depends on the fabric.
Butterick 5147 - I finally decided to buy this one because of Sheila, LOL I have a fabric for the a-lined dress, View D. After looking at the line drawings on the actual pattern, I can see why this pattern has so many options.
McCalls 6169 in 2 lengths -this may be the pattern I use to kick-off my fall sewing. It's easy to sew and will be great to complete an outfit if (when) the weather turns cool and you don't need a coat just yet.

Although I really don't like to think about cold weather, I know I should be prepared because it's coming. Ugh! LOL

You are going to love B5147.. its sew user friendly and the garments fit any wardrobe style.

I have B5415 and agree it will make a great transitional dress. I really like the jacket in the upper right hand corner of M6169... must add to my pattern list.

Love both of the Butterick patterns. Like you I don't look forward to the cold weather but I need to get started.
