New Spring Vogue Patterns

I've been chomping at the bit to see what the Vogue Spring patterns would bring and there are a few that I'm already starting to drool over.

I have a wedding to attend this spring and think this would be beautiful in a rich solid color - maybe a deep teal or sapphire blue.

I also think this could be a fun dress, though I think I would need to close up the neckline a bit. I'm guessing Jim would vehemently disagree. ;) I know Erica B is a huge Tracy Reese fan, so maybe I'll let her work through it first and then go from there. Hehehe.

If only I was a fancy advanced seamstress, I'd be all over this. The side ruching, the rosettes, the fitted silhoutte - I love it all!

What a cute day-to-night work dress. Love that it's suggested for stable knits - after making my Vegas dress, I've decided I love sewing with rayon-poly doubleknit and I think this dress would be way cute in that fabric. Maybe in a fun spring green or teal.



Vogues are on sale this weekend at Joanns, so I'm hoping they have the new patterns in by then. Anything that you're loving from the new line?

I like the last dress too! I actually put it into my cart to wait for the next Club BMV sale.

Nice choices- you'd be so pretty in them, that first one especially! Personally, my favorite from the new collection is V1159, the Donna Karan dress (http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v1159-products-10759.php?page_id=174) The model that they have photographed is kind of busy with that print, but the line drawing is stunning. If I had any curves whatsoever, I'd be all over that.

I can't stop laughing at "front deviant."

Clearly, I do not sew.

Yeah, Vogue really blew it out of the water this season. Almost all the new patterns rock, even one of the usually-weird Marcy Tildon ones! I really like the last dress, too - I think it's the stand-up collar.

My fav pattern is the Rachel Comey tie-neck blouse. I have some satin backed crepe coming in my fabric.com shipment, so I may make it out of that.

i just stocked up on $.99 simplicity patterns yesterday. i'm so not in "vogue" league yet.

can't wait to see what you whip up!

ps. just a thought but it would be neat (yes, i say words like "neat") if you could provide costing details with each finished piece (i.e. cost of pattern, fabric, etc.). the pieces you have made look so fab that i'm sure people would be shocked at how much it costs vs. how much it would be at a dept store.

You are such the stylista I wish to be! I agree you should include costs and time involved on your patterns; it would help me decide if they are worth my time and energy. Definitley they are cost effective but I am quite the lazy mofo. The patterned one I would wear like CRAZY. I love keyhole backs. Open necklines are always my scene - you know a girl has got to accentuate the positive. Rouching seens like it has to be insanely difficult to do properly - just like a wedding gown! And the green high neck one, wow, how chic! I would do the swing bottom though because I am pear shaped. I can't wait to see what you do with the new year :)

I love all of them, but wish that wearing dresses at work didn't bring me, "Why are you so dressed up today, Ms. B?"
Oh, and guess you is the PR Member of the Day today? YOU!!!

I am a new reader and I just wanted to let you know that the Vogue Patterns website is having a sale right now! I bought the leopard dress and the green sheath pattern! The leopard dress is probably above my skill level right now, but I for $4.50 I just thought I would be able to make it when I am more confident! I love your blog and am a new sewer! I look forward to readng more!

I totally dig the back of the second dress!
