Do we need another SATC already?

Not sure if we need another movie already - a few years between the end of the series and the movie felt right, but another movie already? Really? It doesn't seem like enough time has passed in the characters' lives for it to be worth it.

Besides, I really liked how the movie tied everything up so neatly for everyone. Well, except Samantha. Or maybe not. Maybe that was Samantha's happy ending.

On the other hand, another movie full of clothes and shoes and accessories? Well, okay, twist my arm.

I was looking online last week at some photos from the filming, and Sarah Jessica Parker has already got one dress that I'd like to try to knock off.

It looks adorable on Sarah Jessica Parker, but then again, what doesn't? Still, I think this dress has great potential to look good on a real body.

And it was very nice of the photographer to do a front, a closeup and a side shot (showing the closure, thank you very much!). Now if they could have just done a back view, I'd be happy.

And of course it's not going to happen in white. It wouldn't make it out of the sewing room clean (cat hair, anybody?), and it certainly wouldn't survive the commute to work, much less a standard day in my grubby office.

So am I the only one with mixed feelings about SATC II?

Edited to add the tidbit that this dress is from the Halston Heritage Spring 2010 collection - someone on Patternreview was asking about the dress too, so I'm not the only one!

Well see I'm looking forward to the movie...but I especially like the fact that it's brought jobs and money back to NYC! Anything, well almost anything that helps the economy is good to me right now! *LOL*

Plus they are talking about a release date of May 28, 2010...that will make quite a bit of time between both movies. This one is just getting so much press right...

Never watched the show... Just one of those that never interested me. I do however love that dress! But you're right. It definitely needs the right body to pull it off. Not mine...

It's a lovely dress--the top section reminds me of Burda 7697, but with longer sleeves. (note--this pattern appeared in BWOF).

Hi Karen .- yes, it's a fabulous dress. Is a Halston's heritage. I think there is much information on this dress, I look for.

The dress reminds me of this Burda WoF pattern in 10/2008

I haven't even seen the first movie! Although I did watch the series re-runs.

Hmmmmm, I never jumped on the SATC bandwagon. I don't think I've ever seen a single episode and I've never seen the movie. I would watch it with girlfriends but if you don't know the backstory . . . well, it wouldn't make much sense.

A response to Dawn's comment, the movie does apparently make sence without the backstory of the tv series, the first one at least. I have seen all the episodes of the tv series many many times, but one of my friends that came with us to the cinema to see the first movie hadn't seen the series before and said there was just enough backstory in the opening credits that she didn't feel lost or confused when watching the film at all.
