They are finally up! The newest patterns, I mean. I have been stalking the Vogue website for a week now, hoping for a peek. New patterns are always so exciting, don't you agree? On my first pass through, I got a little panicked. There are so many beautiful dresses that I want to make. And I already have a TON of dress patterns in my stash! But, I have just decided to give myself permission to wear dresses as often as I want to. It will make me happy, and they are much cooler during the summer.
Justin just picked up my machine from the repair shop and I am anxious to get stitching, so I'm not going to gush about each design or provide pattern numbers and such.
This one actually has a lot of pretty pleating that you can't see with the bold print used. Don't get me wrong, the fabric is gorgeous, but I would probably look for something with a smaller print or a solid color.
Okay, must gush about the back of this dress. SO PRETTY! I don't like those tie ends hanging down over the armpits in the front, but they should be easy enough to leave off.
The front placket that extends up onto the collar makes this dress unique. The fabric they've used is divine.
Wouldn't this look great in some stretch denim? WHAT a show-stopper. I think it's my favorite out of the whole bunch.
Super hot! I like the contrast of high non-revealing neckline and curve-hugging shape.
These belts are so fun! I'm not one who usually ever makes accessories, but this pattern is definitely coming home with me.
Okay, maybe I can get something completed by this weekend. I managed to cut out 4 skirts in the past week, and already had a knit dress ready to sew when my machine threw its tantrum. Oh, by the way, there was an actual part broken in the bobbin area, so it's a good thing I took it in.
