Ladies, the sewing blogosphere is atwitter! And for good reason: the new Vogue patterns were just released. Remember this post, where I bitched and moaned that Vogue should hire cooler designers like Nanette Lepore and Rebecca Taylor? Well, half of my fantasy has come true! Rebecca Taylor is the newest addition to their designer line. (Do you think this means that I'm psychic and that next season we'll be treated to some patterns from Nanette Lepore? Oh, I hope so!)
There are two new patterns from Ms. Taylor: the fab skirt suit above and this flowy little dress.
The suit is going to be a must-buy for me. I love the retro silhouette and interesting details, like the cool lapels, flower brooch, and couture details. Part of the embellishment comes from hand pickstitches! I'm having fun imagining different color schemes for this suit. The neutral gray and black is a nice classic choice, but it's a little corporate for me.
The dress is a pass. It's fine, just not a must-have for my stash.
The other new Vogue I'm loving is 8640. Check out the lines on this skirt. SO vintage!
Sadly, there's only one new Vintage Vogue, and it's a collection of aprons. Sigh.
So, what do you think? Any new favorites?
