|Love the seam details on the back! |
These sorts of subtle goodies are peppered throughout this collection.
|V1435 - Tom and Linda Platt. I don't know if I love the overall silhouette |
that the jacket makes, but the back is lovely. The sheath dress is rather basic,
other than the leg slit.
|V1437 - Ralph Rucci. LOVE this! The jacket is super cool.|
The top/skirt are fine, but I love the way the colors are used to make
this whole outfit fit together so well.
|V1431 - Tom and Linda Platt. If I only saw the line drawing, I think this dress|
might be kind of cool, but I'm not sure how I feel about it on the model.
Maybe in a different fabric color combo I would like it more?
|V9096 - This looks like it should be a designer Vogue pattern, but it isn't!|
The swirly seam details are really interesting... could be very fun to color block.
|V1434 - Isaac Mizrahi, Also comes in a longer length. Rather basic|
party dress, but I do like the cut of the bodice. And pockets are nice.
|V1432 - Kay Unger. LOVE the details of the top. |
Another that could be fun to color block. This will definitely join the stash.
|Love the seaming details. Lovely.|
|V1433 - Tracy Reese. A bit plain, but obviously works well for prints.|
|Not sure why there was the decision to use the bow tie closure on the back.|
|V1440 - Donna Karen. My first thought was, ok, we've got a lot of |
options for leggings, tops, and draped jackets already...
|But look at the details on the jacket and the top! This is so going on my wishlist.|
|V1439 - Anne Klein. Love the jacket on this one. Pants are fine, not sure that|
length would be the best for me, but it would be easy enough to lengthen it.
|V1441 - Koos van der Akker. These patterns are always a bit crazy,|
but I actually really love the fabric combos here.
|Doubt this is something I would actually wear, but I'm enjoying looking at the pictures.|
|V1436 - Anne Klein. Really practical pattern, as it includes both the top and the pants.|
|V1438 - DKNY. I feel like I'm looking at a faded outfit from the 80s.|
Not really a fan of the 80s. This is a total pass for me.
|V1443 - Today's Fit by Sandra Betzina.|
|I guess the interesting bit is the angles sleeves? Otherwise just a large tunic.|
|V9089 - Marcy Tilton. Between this and Burda I feel like I should be expecting everyone|
to be running around in giant poofy button front shirts by the start of spring.
|V9081 - Marcy Tilton. The dress is simple, but the jacket is interesting.|
I'm not sure if it is cool interesting or messy interesting, but, well, interesting.
|V9094 - Vogue Wardrobe. Like the angled jacket front.|
|V9082 - Vintage Vogue. Super cute.|
|Love the versatility of this pattern - sheath dress can be made more casual with the over-shirt,|
or more classy with the cute cropped jacket.
|V9083 - Vintage Vogue. Really like this pattern as well.|
|The cool think is that the collar piece is separate and buttons on and off the dress,|
but looks like it is part of the jacket when it is worn. Very interesting design detail.
|V1442 - Today's Fit by Sandra Betzina. A bit ambivalent here.|
I feel like the line drawing excites me more than the actual dress.
|V9078 - Vogue Easy Options with Custom Fit. Not sure how I feel about the|
extra ruffle on the bottom of the skirt, but I could see this being
made into a rather cute party dress.
|V9085 - Very Easy Vogue. Simple tunic. Is fine.|
|V9092 - Very Easy Vogue with Custom Fit. Sort of meh on this one.|
|V9091 - Very Easy Vogue. I think these pants look cool in the photo - |
almost like a skirt. Not sure that they would look good on me.
|V9075 - Very Easy Vogue. Love that this can be a dress or a jumpsuit.|
Actually might be getting this for a costume idea...
|V9076 - A very 70s looking button front dress.|
I'm.. oddly digging this. 70s is one of my eras, apparently.
|V9077 - Button front sheath dress with contrast details. Fairly cute.|
|V9079 - Sheath dress with color blocking contrast.|
I really like the interesting shape of the collar that the color blocking makes.
|V9095 - Classic Little French Jacket pattern.|
Nice lines if one if going for a really classic shape.
|Love the view with the collar as well.|
|V9093 - Very Easy Vogue. Lots of nice lines for fit adjustments.|
|V9086 - Nice basic blouse.|
|V9087 - My first thought was that this is a pretty cool looking top.|
My second though - not sure how it would lie on someone with
a slightly more pronounced bust line.
|V9084 - Very Easy Vogue. Guess peplums are still a thing?|
|V9090 - Nice pleated skirt. Nothing overly exciting, but cute.|
Comes in several length options.
|V9097 - Tux for guys. Love the classy shawl collar.|
|V9098 - Mary Jo Hiney. Pattern to make fabric flowers. Could be fun for some more crafty projects.|
