Vogue Patterns Spring 2017
This collection strikes me as very formal, at least the designer patterns. Several are actually simple designs pimped up with cover ups/tunics/jackets:
By the way these two last patterns from Nicola Finetti actually are, if you look at the technical lines, the exact same jumpsuit pattern, with a different tunic/coverup. Really? Really!
All the patterns above would be easy to dress down by either leaving the cover-up option of choosing different fabrics. The fabric choice alternative also applies to V1534, which would make a nice summer maxi in some cotton fabric(s):
My winner of this collection is V1531 by Lialia, a new kind of infinity dress:
I love the many options (click on link to see them all).
