With all the election and storm coverage, somehow new patterns fell off my radar! I am loving the new Vogues.
V1326 - colorblocking a la Tom and Linda Platt
I can see this being a flattering choice on many.
This Anne Klein design, V1327, has some nice bodice detail.
This is a nice, easy to sew knit dress from designer Kay Unger (V1328).
PLus, more colorblocking from Kay Unger with V 1329. I think this is stunning.
I think the cut of V8848 would be very figure-flattering. I'd love to have it in a pretty pink like this!
You know already how I feel about color-blocking. I can definitely say V8856 is on my wish list.
Now, I don't see myself purchasing or making V8860, only because I have a wool coat underway from an Ottobre pattern, but I like this design. I'm sure you cannot guess why.
I don't much care for the pants, but the blouse options are nice in V1334, a Sandra Betzina design.
I don't think my husband would wear it, but I could see my sons loving this: V 8869
The bags of V8867 would be some fun little accessories.
