New Vogues!

Thank you everyone for your outpouring of support on my whiny cry-baby post! :-)

I don't have enough fabric to make anything else and I'm okay with possibly ditching the mini-wardrobe contest. I'm going to continue along with my July sewing plans and if I get a mini-wardrobe from it then lucky me. :-)

*****************************
The new Vogue patterns are out!!

This is a really nice release, in my (very) humble opinion. The vast majority of it falls into the "Wow! Interesting/Cool/Nice/Amazing, but that has no place in my everyday life" category.


1417: Very interesting! If you remove the caped whatever is happening...that's a really nice top underneath. And I think pleated, tapered pants are in.

1415: Love both tops

1407: Gorgeous.


1409: Crazy cool seam lines. Unsure about the curved over-bust lines.


1404: Sweet. Very sweet



1419: THIS WILL BE MADE!

1411: YES please!


9032: MUST have.




1412: VERY nice...but I still haven't made my other Rebecca Taylor pattern

9028: I love this view with the zipper <3


9031: Very interesting


9037: Pretty!


9039: Interesting!


9024: CRAZY interesting


9017: Oh the options!!


9022: This makes me smile!


9026: Lots of options; great basic!


And some were really...eh...to me but only 1 "WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!"

  1. Well, I had just looked at the new Vogues and could barely look past the terrible fabrics in the photos. So glad you posted the line drawings! I always love Rebecca Taylor's designs. But Vogue seems to make patterns for much more sophisticated people than me, haha. Wish they'd branch out into the casual mom genre of designs, lol.

    1. Oh gosh you HAVE to look past the fabric! LOL!!!!

      I don't have a ton of Vogue patterns either; because I have like, zero places to wear half the stuff they put out...

  6. Im so glad you used the tech drawings! I get so fooled by the smoke mirrors and fancy posing! These have lots of gaudy potential. Except for Louis xiv's napkins at the end!

    1. You know; we could all make that way and do a blog parade...

      The one rule being that they'd HAVE to be made in a shiny printed polyester. It must be shiny.

    1. That's pretty fierce. I'm sure I'll see lots of my favorite, fancy bloggers making that one up :D

  8. I have to say I agree with you about a lot of designs, but the funny thing is that on the one where we disagree it is the exact features I don't like that you do. So funny. Anyway, yes, for me this release is all about that Ralph Rucci coat. Everything else is like bonuses. So much good stuff though. So much.

    And, I'm sorry your wardrobe didn't work out the way you wanted, but I'm glad you are feeling a bit better about it - I always get mopey after a wadder, but moving on to the next thing always seems to snap me out of it.

    1. Which one!?!? :-)

      That coat is the business. It will be so pretty in the orchid wool that I have with all that top stitching...mmmmmmmm.

  9. The line drawings show the bones of the patterns much better the models and those ugly fabrics. There are a few dresses that have 'everyday' possibilities. I can't help but think when I see new patterns 'haven't I seen this before?" There is nothing new under the sun when it comes to life and sewing. Our presentation is what makes the difference.

    1. I have looked at them about 5 more times to make sure I didn't overlook anything! I now have 12 patterns on my list. Will have to whittle them down by priority :-p

  12. I agree; those are very cute patterns, especially the dresses.

  14. It is nice to see the tech drawings (just saw the photos yesterday) and read other folks impressions. I could not have been bothered by the photos, but I can see some future in a couple of them. 1417 I will buy for the pants, 9039 for the cut front; I will buy them onsale and I probably won't make them up. 1411 looks a LOT like Melissa Fehr's PB Jam leggings pattern (http://www.fehrtrade.com/shop/785/pb-jam-leggings-pattern).

    I do seem to buy a fair number of patterns to read, and sew from the TNT's I have. Often I sew them up for family or friends.
