I can't even tell y'all how happy I am to see new eveningwear options from Vogue Patterns. I love this jumpsuit. The holiday season is rapidly approaching. And when it's chilly and possibly rainy, sometimes the idea of putting on a dress can be my biggest deterrent for leaving the house. Vogue 9160 is a must have for my jumpsuit-obsessed self.
I'm not necessarily the biggest full skirt fan. But this neckline which would be super flattering on me has me sold. Vogue 1471 from new Vogue Patterns designer Nicola Finetti is also a great eveningwear/holiday wear option. I had to google this new designer because I was unfamiliar with the brand. I like what I see. I hate they only have two pattern options because I see a lot more that I would love to make.
I love a great tunic, especially made in silk crepe de chine. And I know that Vogue 9151 would be worn until it's threadbare.
I don't know if I'm mentally done with the asymmetrical skirt focus I've had lately. But I really love the shape of this one. I could see Vogue 9154 made in leather or suede.
And I also took the time to sit down in the store and flip through all of the catalogs. I haven't done that in a while.
See... that asymmetrical skirt be calling me! This one is Simplicity 1500.
Ponchos, ponchos, ponchos and MORE ponchos! Not only are they all over the stores this season, I'm currently drawn to the patterns. The one thing about a poncho is that it's a GOOD trend! It's cyclical. Even when they go out of style, just pack it away. It'll be back in a few years!
And what I plan to wear under my ponchos? Skinny pants in a ponte knit or a stretch faux leather!
I didn't know that I wanted a stirrup pant until I saw Burda 6745. What I don't like is the stirrup showing. I'd actually wear mine in boots.
I never think about Kwik Sew Patterns. These are basic often-overlooked jewels! Another awesome looking skinny pant pattern is Kwik Sew 3807. I love the zippers at the ankle. These would be so cute with flat shoe or ankle boot.
I always need pretty professional dresses in my wardrobe. And even though I would save this one until Spring/Summer, Kwik Sew 4111 is currently on my radar.
I love this skirt. I love skirts with "interest". And the Simplicity 1322 version of the wrap pencil skirt fits that bill.
I've said for a while that I wanted to make a denim skirt. And lo and behold, Burda 6769 was right under my nose.
And what would I wear with MY denim skirt? Well, a Burda 6849 denim shirt of course!
I have several pussy bow blouse patterns, but hey what's one more? I think Burda 6840 should be added to my collection.
And I simply think that Burda 6981's high-waist pants are adorable.
And one more draped jacket from Burda 7184!
I'm admittedly a Vogue Patterns sewer. I'm sure I sew more Vogue Patterns than any other line. So it was good for me to take the opportunity and sit down and see what the others had to offer.
