New Vogue patterns today!
I'm super super excited about V1510, the Sandra Betzina tunic and dress:
I need this, like, now. I love the fabric they used, too.
(With this and last year's jacket pattern, Sandra Betzina really seems to be going the Mad Max route. I like it.)
Second pattern on the shortlist: V1517, the Anne Klein collarless jacket.
It's very Quinn in UnREAL or Cat Grant in Supergirl. Dig.
On the maybe-shortlist: V1516, the Tom and Linda Platt batwing top, layered-overlay top, pencil skirt and pants. Interesting combination.
I'm intrigued by the layered-overlay top. Could go well, could go horribly wrong. Only one way to find out. And I like the batwing top too (minus the cutouts, which maybe I can find a way to eliminate?), and the pencil skirt is a nice basic.
Just one question: The only recommended fabric is satin-backed crepe? For everything? Really?

Overall, I'm really pleased at the nice variety of modern and minimal shapes. Not a fan of the ruffles, but at least peplums seem to be on their way out. Plus, yay shapes that work on short people.
