I was just thinking it was time for some new Vogues – and they went up on the website! I quite like this batch, and found some patterns that will most definitely be on my list. I can’t wait to pick these up when they go on sale! Here are my picks:
1271 and 1270 are both Kay Unger designs. Both would make great day dresses that would transition well into evening. I’m imagining navy blue or black for 1271. I have some wools that would work. The other dress would also make a great LBD, or perhaps something a little more fun. The bow detail reminds me of the Michael Kors design I made last year, which looked complicated but really was not bad. One of these will definitely be made in black – I have a number of knit black dresses, but nothing really structured.
I am intrigued by these two Very Easy, Very Vogue patterns (8763 and 8764.) I’ve seen a number of these draped dresses recently. I will have to see it made up, but I think the color blocked version has potential. The other dress seems rather 1960s inspired – I like it!
8766 is an Easy Options pattern. I really like most of the versions shown, especially the lace overlay.
I also like some of the separates (shocking!)
8780 is a nice version of a waterfall jacket. I still love this style, so this is a must for me. 8777 has a selection of vests. I like the unusual seaming on this one, though I must confess I am unlikely to wear one – vests just aren’t for me!
8769 is a fun tunic – I love those sleeves! 8771 is a knit tunic with dolman sleeves. I like the brown version – the long cuffs and rounded hem on the other version just seems odd to me, but I love the looks of the other! I might lengthen it to wear with slim pants, but I would not use the rounded hem.
There are also two new vintage Vogue patterns. They aren’t for me, but I think they are great! I have a bunch of vintage patterns to make up already, and these both have details that don’t work for me (the sleeves on that 1950s dress wouldn’t work – they have that sort of faux bolero thing going on, and I really prefer set in sleeves.)
I am off to go through my fabric – I hope I have some that will work for these designs!
