I know, I’m a couple weeks late on the new Vogue sewing patterns. I almost didn’t bother writing a review up- mostly because I think the majority of the styles are kind of meh. Like, not even good enough to poke fun at. However, there are also quite a few patterns that I actually really like and you best believe I’ll be hollering at them during the next $3.99 sale. So, while negative reviews are much more funny – let’s give credit where credit is due, yes?
A little twee with the scallops, but it’s still pretty cute. I think it would look especially nice if the bodice and skirt were in different fabrics, so it looked like a skirt+top set.
LOVE. THIS. Go look at the line drawing – wouldn’t this be awesome in navy and white cotton sateen? Or even chambray and white bastiste, if you wanted to keep it super casual.
Pretty! I even like the fabric they used – which is a first.
Vogue gets an A+ on the styling here.
NO NO NO NO NO.
I’m starting to hate this woman because I’m pretty sure she looks good in everything.
lololol omg you guys, she ~busted out of the background~ here
This is really pretty and I want it.
I think I want this one too.
You know those mudflaps they put behind the tires of semi trucks? This dress has waist mudflaps. Someone should applique a naked lady lounging on each one.
Not too crazy about the photos here, but I could see this pattern having a lot of good potential.
You know it’s a bad pattern when the model has to contort her body to hold the shoulders up for the photo.
The potato sack with a belt!
Vogue: STILL trying to make the danglies happen.
This has got to be one of those most unflattering silhouettes I’ve seen Vogue push on a model lately.
Or maybe this one. Cute pattern, bad fabric choice. What the hell did they use – curtains?
The peek-a-boo facing is a nice touch.
I’m just going to ignore the worst of this and say: Oh, look. More danglies.
I’m merely posting this because I am fascinated by the sudden change in background.
Do you think that model is high? She looks high to me. Probably trying to numb the pain of wearing that… thing.
2005 called, they want their useless shrugs back.
I get that it’s part of the style lines, but the darts where the lapels should be just look like they are lapels that got pushed up by the wind and I want to push them back down.
I take back everything I just said about the lapels.
That crooked neckline looks like a mistake.
Wait, are these supposed to be pajamas or something you actually wear in public?
And there she is again! JUST GO BE PERFECT SOMEWHERE ELSE, GAH.
What do you think? See anything that strikes your fancy in this batch?
