|V1423 - Belville Sassoon. I'm actually really liking this dress.|
|The overlapping layers of fabric are actually really interesting.|
|V1424 - Rebecca Taylor. Have to say I love the cut-outs over the shoulders.|
Between the Burda Easy design and what we are seeing here I'm thinking it is
going to be the next big trend in patterns. Have to say I think I'm ok with that.
|It is difficult to see the seaming details in the photo, but I really like how it creates the shape of the skirt.|
|V1426 - Badgley Mischka. So pretty! Love the contrast on the ruffle.|
|I'm thinking of so many potentially awesome color combos right now.|
|V1427 - Donna Karen. I wasn't too impressed by the super shiny dress in the photo...|
|...but I'm LOVING the line drawing. |
Totally thinking about making this one in a different fabric.
|So many seams!|
|V1420 - Anne Klein. The details at the neck are quite interesting.|
This would be a great dress for someone who has a more formal work environment.
|V1421 - DKNY. I wasn't overly excited by the photo of this dress, |
but there are way more details to be seen in the line drawing.
|So many interesting color blocking options! I actually quite like this dress.|
|V1425 - Pamella Rolland. I think the fabrics used are quite striking...|
|But the design itself is sort of basic. |
Actually reminds me of a certain current frankenpattern project I'm working on...
|V1428 - Tom and Linda Platt. Another design that features some fantastic fabrics.|
|But, again, a fairly simple dress design.|
|V1422 - Tracey Reese. Fun fabric, basic design seems to be a theme|
among the designer patterns this time around.
|V9050 - Vogue Easy options. I really don't need another sheath dress pattern,|
but I love all the options that come with this design!
|V9051 - Vintage Vogue. I love this dress! Actually, I think I'd use this pattern to make |
a coat though. Maybe with fewer buttons down the front?
|How gorgeous is this collar?|
|V9052 - Vintage Vogue. The pattern page informs us that the original pattern is circa 1949.|
|Loving the elegant simplicity of this dress.|
|And look at all the lovely seaming on the jackets!|
|V9053 - I know this is a rather basic dress design, but I'm oddly fond of it.|
|V1429 - Today's Fit by Sandra Betzina. I actually rather like the use of color blocking |
around the neck on this design. Not sure if I like this as a dress, but I definitely like the top.
|V1430 - Today's Fit. I believe this is what Vogue calls "art teacher chic?"|
So not my style, but I can think a few awesome bloggers who could rock this.
|V9070 - Marcy Tilton. Interesting take on a dressier parka.|
They had a few interesting photos of the collar doing some cool things.
When I first saw this I thought "rumpled mess," but it is actually growing on me quite a bit.
|V9060 - Marcy Tilton. Interesting shape to the skirt, not something one would typically see.|
This is another pattern that I expect will pop up on some other blogs sooner or later.
|V9066 - Custom Fit Wardrobe pattern. Nothing here that I don't like,|
but also nothing that is screaming "buy me."
|V9068 - Very Easy Vogue. This jacket has some interesting seam lines,|
but not enough unique details for me to feel like I need to add it to the stash.
|V9069 - I was sort of meh on this Very Easy Vogue coat, but...|
|... The hood actually looks super cool.|
Not sure if the rest of it is too bathrobe or not.
|V9071 - This basic coat is just a bit too plain for my taste.|
The sleeve cuff is sort of interesting though.
|V9047 - Very Easy Vogue. This basic sheath dress is another one that could|
be good for a more formal work situation.
|V9049 - Sort of meh on this plaid jumper. |
The lapel detail keeps it from being overly basic I think.
|V9064 - So many things I could say about the giant dot. Like, reverse black-widow spider.|
I think if only the top portion were color blocked I could get behind it. As is... not so much.
|V9061 - Nothing particularly new about the skirt,|
but it is a nice shape, and the color-blocked hem is sort of fun.
|V9048 - Ok, so this is basically a sack dress BUT props to Vogue for the color|
choices on the artwork. It actually has won me over, and I've never been a fan os sack dresses.
And now for all the high-low/peplum/color-blocked oversized tunic top patterns a girl could ever need:
|V9054. The color blocking is sort of interesting here.|
|V9067 - Five Easy Pieces (a mix of tunics and pants). Not really liking the patterns|
(too much volume for me), but I am liking the way Vogue styled these looks.
|V9057 - Marcy Tilton. Assorted oversized tunics.|
|V9058 - Actually all the seaming is sort of cool on this tunic.|
|V9059 - So puffy!|
|V9056. Not loving the proportions on this peplum.|
|V9073 - Vest and ties for men's formal wear. |
I'm actually super excited about this pattern. So great for gift sewing!
