Still can't do any ruffles or maxis or cold shoulders or open backs. (Saw my dermatologist yesterday! She yelled at me—again!) But I really love some of them and am intrigued by some of the others.
Tracy Reese, V1584
I love this very hard. You had me at asymmetrical neckline with pleats. And that fabric is amazing.
Tracy Reese, V1586
There's a theme here, I know, but Tracy Reese always has really great patterns. Love the fabric in this one too.
(Don't worry, dermatologist, I'll finagle some kind of solution for the shoulders.)
Rachel Comey, V1585
I am...really intrigued by this, and might get it just to see how it makes up, even if the shape isn't right for my petite apple-shaped self. I love that it's not the usual seersucker dress.
Marcy Tilton, V9317
I like this but not sure if I can pull it off.
Rebecca Vallance, V1591
I love this, but again with the open back. Cannot do.
Vogue Easy Options, V9313
Digging view F here. And look, sleeves!
As someone said on Lladybird's roundup, I kind of like it when designers mess around. It's why I love Vogue over most of the other pattern companies. Even if it doesn't work, at least it's interesting.
