The new vogue patterns are out! Without further ado here’s my two cents worth on what I would make and what I think of them:
I think this looks like a lot of work – recommended for “average” sewists – indeed
A nice loosing fitting jersey material dress. Looks comfortable and can be dressed up
THIS PHOTO IS HILARIOUS. I mean how can anyone call it ‘high fashion’!? Again, it looks comfortable but the economist in me thinks – is this a waste of material?? Also this only suits hour-glass figures (according to the style guide) I think this may be telling…
This is my favourite so far. I like the ‘mod’ style and the exposed zipper especially. I don’t know if I’d make it in different fabrics though…
ANOTHER jersey fabric dress. Is there a theme appearing?
LOVE THIS DRESS. I think of the whole collection this is my favourite. I know I already said that, but really this is. The shape, the bow, the neckline – it all works in my mind. I’ll be buying this one for sure.
When I first saw this I liked it, but upon reflection I think it was the houndstooth I liked!
Despite the fact that this coat is described as “very loosing fitting” I’m very drawn to it. I think I like the drama of the collar and the shoulders. Practicality?
Glad to see a cape pattern for this season. I think the right kind of person could pull this off, but not me. You need swagger to wear this.
This pattern is for the pants and shirt. Alas its a no and maybe/ no from me. Maybe/ no is for the shirt – I think this could work in a light cotton as a summer top. And hell no to the elasticated waistband pants!
This pattern is also for the top and skirt. I’m really undecided on this one. I quite like the top and skirt but I wonder if they look too OTT together? If I was in the corporate world then I guess it would be different.
Whilst I don’t think I’d make a suit for myself I’m totally sold on the blouse. I have been seeking out a pussy bow pattern for a while now so I’m glad to see vogue has answered my plea to the universe! I would follow suit (hilarious pun, I know) and also make it out of a silk or silk-like fabric.
So that’s what I think. What do you think of the new patterns??
