spring Vogues

Confession: I like 'em.

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.

Such as!

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.

  1. I still find Vogue patterns interesting; they also remind me of when I first started sewing and found Vogue to be so "fancy!" I also love their vintage Vogue patterns. Thanks for the heads-up on these.

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I'd love to know if you get any of them or make any of them up!

    2. I've made two vintage Vogue patterns - V2960 & V2401. They're pretty labour-intensive, and you have to get used to the fit (2960 has a slightly off-the-shoulder thing that I had to just go with), but looking through the patterns now, there are definitely more I'd consider making up.
