More Vogue patterns that I forgot about

I really love dresses and sometimes the dresses that I might make can be a little moomoo-ish so I am trying really hard to move away from those type of silhouettes. This pattern is on the verge. But I think that with a little shortening (not hoochie short) and the pockets this can be a very young silhouette. I say shorten it because I myself am a little short.

And talk about a power suit. I love this suit ensemble. I could make this in several colors. in the summer you could wear the jacket with a nice pair of shorts and a belt. Endless opportunites!!!!


OOOOOOOH I thought the New Vogue patterns were so good, I just had to do a post about them. Here are some of my favorites that I might actually sew.

Now you always need a dress just to go about the town in. You know-something not to fussy - to window shop or actually shop in but that can still allow you to be free. I can see this in challi, a linen look-like, and a knit.

Another great jacket pattern. I know that butterick has come out with a pattern similiar to this, but I think it is the sleeve that attracts me to it. I would definitely make this pattern in some type of black material and maybe cut the neck differently. I have learned the hard way that this neckline completely swallows me.

Anyone who knows me knows I love a great cardigan. I see many fabrics from my stash in this pattern. Oh - the drama.

Call me paranoid if you want but every time new Vogue patterns come out, I always feel everyone and their mamas are going to be late that morning so they can buy Vogue patterns. I still feel the same about the pattern sale. I think this pattern might be a hot seller. And since vogue only sends about two patterns for every design, it is sure to cause some teeth sucking.

I love this pattern. What can I say? A girl can never have too many jackets.

Honey I think I would fight my mama for this pattern. Just joking. This is another really hot one. It seems complicated but I think I must have that jacket.

Hot Hot Hot. I think I will try this in khaki first.

Isn't this a hot little number. I can see this in so many fabrics from my stash. I would wear with a cute cardigan and some flats. And you can't forget about the accessories.
I think I might make the mess out of this one. Maybe a version with or without the pockets.Sometimes Vogue can get a little complicated. Maybe this can be one of my resolutions to challenge myself with a Vogue pattern.

A nice summer dress.My brother will be graduating soon and this pattern could be in the line up of dresses I am thinking about wearing to the graduation.

Another knit top pattern for all of my knits. I am trying to get out of the habit of making raglan sleeve knit tops. How many can a girl have? I would make the wrap version at the bottom right.
Well I hope you all enjoy and please make your list before you go to this pattern sale. If you sit and browse through the pattern catalogue there - you might miss out. Til next time.
