2014 has Arrived: Vogue Early Spring Release
What better sign is there than the release of the Spring patterns? My favorites:
I really like the look but I’m afraid of wardrobe malfunction, what with the slit going open, plus the whole front seems to close only with snaps? And the petites mains at Vogue seem to have had difficulties with the easing of the sleeves. So it’s a careful “like” for this one. Also, a big fabric eater since cut on the bias but probably that much comfortable to wear.
I especially love the skirt. You know you’ve got a truly DonnaKaran pattern when it reads “no side seams” (here on the skirt and top). I’m really curious about the “applied lapels” on the jacket too.
Love the french darts but would ditch the patch pockets for in-seam ones.
I like the neckline pleats but I have a fear of this garment looking too matronly when made up, though I can’t put my finger on the reason why…
A classical yet versatile pattern.
Now for the rest:
Looks to me like the skirt pendant to Vogue 8955, though I can’t picture a non-formal version of this one, at least not in floor length.
DKNY’s younger take on the so successful Burberry skirt.
Nice, but I feel like I expect more from a designer’s pattern. But really, there’s nothing wrong with this pattern.
What is this? Is it resort? Help me out on this one, please.
What’s do you say about this collection?
