Vogue Patterns Summer 2016
Thank El nino, we haven’t had a real winter this year, but I’m still ready for summer, so is Vogue, it seems. I’m a little worried that there is no DK pattern in this release and hope that she has not ended her collaboration with Vogue patterns…?
Although nothing swept me off my feet, there’s a lot to like about this collection. But I’ll begin with the patterns that got me scratching my head:
Never a good sign when the model hides a main feature of the garment, like this hand on that elasticized waist. The other featured version ist from a checkered fabric, where same feature is less noticeable. I can’t imagine whom this feature would be flattering on. I beg to be proven wrong.
Dress that’s to look like a tucked-in shirt. I actually like the idea. Not sold on the length of the skirt, nor on the rather high waist. And when I read, “Sleeveless dress has shoulder pads”, that was it for me.
I can see that it’s supposed to look like a sari, but I’m not sure it works.
Yes, she did it again. I’m strangely attracted to this top. Actually, I think this outfit really works, in a “chic artsy” way. What do you think?
This looks like it could be a nice beach cover up, and possibly be worn front to back as well.
Here are the patterns I definitely like:
V1506 by Tom and Linda Platt, thank God for shapewear 🙂 :
V1498 by Nicola Finetti, might as well use that shapewear for several garments 🙂 :
V1509 by Anne Klein, who always supplies nice shirts:
V1502 by Tracy Reese, dress with beach cover-up potential:
V1497 by Tracy Reese, who always supplies nice dresses:
