Vogue Patterns - Spring 09: Can We Talk?

7:00 PM

Let me just start off by saying that I feel my expectations were set way too high on this collection. There was so much hyped up anticipation on the web that I just... well... expected more. Needless to say, I was not that impressed. There are a few that I like and wouldn't mind sewing, but nothing that I love. Let's start the show:

V1087 - Donna Karan - I like this dress. I like how it wraps across the front and is fitted in the back. I think this would make a great Little White Dress or Little Black Dress.

V1099 - Badgley Mischka - This little jacket is adorable and I'll be making this. However, they can keep the pants!

V1088 - Donna Karan - I'm a sucker for a halter dress. This is one that I would wear very casually with a pair of flat thong sandals (or heels).

V1093 - DKNY - This jacket caught my eye from first glance. Not sure if I'd do the entire ensemble. If I did, I'd definitely shorten the skirt to the knee. That's such an odd length and very hard to pull off if you don't have enough leg.

V1092 - Tracy Reese - Last, but not least... I think I do love the skirt! And if I get around to making this, I would want to do it in pinstripe as well. I'm still debating on the top.
