Vogue Patterns: Winter/Holiday 2015
Have you had a look at the newly released Vogue patterns? For me there are two clear winners:
Makes me think of a new and improved OOP Butterick 5780:
V9145 by Claire Schaeffer, though I admit that 4 meters of fabric for a dress is a lot:
Patterns I like with a “but” are
V1472 by Lorcan Mullany by Bellville Sassoon, but I would use a walking foot for those side seams.
In principle, it reminds me of OOP V1195 by Badgley Mischka that I also liked at the time:
V1475 by Badgley Mischka, but without the sleeves:
V1474 by Tom and Linda Platt, I like but I haven’t gone bra-less since I was like 13…
V1480 by DonnaKaran I like the tech drawing of pants but the top makes me think of a maternity garment, and the fabric choice is patently wrong for both IMHO:
And then this last one just confuses me/leaves me perplex, V1470 by Tom and Linda Platt:
A dress that wants to look like a tunic and skirt? But what’s the sense of that spiraling hem? This one, for me, is like an accident: you can’t look at it but you can’t look away.
All in all I think this a not as festive as I’m used to seeing for the Holiday collection. I’m a little sad not to be wow-ed by the new designers, Nicola Finetti and Zandra Rhodes.What’s your take on the new collection?
