There are lots of springy designer patterns this time around:
|V1339 - Guy Laroche. I like the gathers on the skirt, |
but I also know that this would not be a flattering look for me.
The pattern is ok, but I think I will pass.
|V1340 - Pamella Rolland. Not exactly a fan of the crumb-catcher look myself, |
but I am sort of intrigued by it from a structural integrity standpoint.
|V1343 - Tracy Reese. This is a nice enough pattern for spring, but nothing I haven't seen before.|
|V1347 - Chado Ralph Ruchi. Vogue seems to be embracing the oversized look this time around.|
|V1346 - Donna Karen. This actually reminds me a |
lot of the retro Burda reprint swing coat from last year.
|V8876 - Marcy Tilton. Another oversized sack dress...|
Though the print on this makes me think oversized baseball jersey?
|V8885 - Elizabeth Gillett NYC. I think this is a nice pattern for a lightweight sweater.|
|I really like view D. Perhaps for my Missoni knit? Not such a fan of the other styles.|
|V1341 - Donna Karen. I LOVE the neckline. Not sure if the other pleating details|
might result in a "pregnancy pooch" look. I think I like it enough to risk it though...
|V1342 - Donna Karen. Another pretty knit dress. I love the gathering on the bodice.|
I feel like this would look fantastic in a fabric with non-uniform stripes...
There were a few new Vintage Vogue patterns as well...
|V8874. I like the neckline and skirt, but I am not a fan of the location of that ribbon trim.|
|V8875. A classic sheath dress with lightweight overcoat - I am sort of falling for this pattern, |
though I don't know if I would actually wear it?
|V8872. I rather liked this structured Vogue Easy Options dress.|
|The skirt and sleeve options leave lots of room for creativity.|
|V8882. I love that this skirt is flat and fitted at the top, with more flare at the bottom.|
I think I am going to get this so I can pare it with some of the Burda bodice patterns that would
otherwise expect me to make a dirndl skirt.
|V8884. Classic trench. I am always weak when it comes to classy coat patterns.|
|V8888. A recent slip success by Clio has me thinking it might be nice to make one of my own...|
|V8888 - A luxurious silk bathrobe would be awesome too...|
|V8890. Yeah, I know, the only patterns for guys are suits and costumes. |
But I think this is a pretty nice suit.
|V8889. They also tossed in a shirt pattern this time too!|
|V8877. Ok, there isn't anything inherently wrong with this oversized blouse - I am just using |
it as a representative for the 20 other oversized blouse patterns Vogue also released this time around.
|V1336 - Today's Fit pattern. I know color blocking is a thing right now, but I have to say this is one of the least appealing color block patterns I have seen. I mean, check out the back...|
|It makes the body look shapeless. And the fabric on those sleeves?|
|V8887 - A Wardrobe pattern. Somehow the oversized jacket and cut off pants make me |
think of a teen who went on a growth spurt more than a sophisticated woman headed to work.
|V8879 - Perfect for viewing the tramp stamp!|
|V8892 - Purse pattern. Actually, with a few tweaks it could look a lot like the starfleet insignia from Star Trek...|
