I am relieved to see that Vogue has not given up on the Vintage Vogue line - two new patterns have been released in the new Spring 2014 Collection! They are not the most fabulous vintage designs I have come across, but they have some lovely features. But why do they continue to hide those plus difficile designs from us?!
The color on this one is yummy, but it seems an odd choice for Spring. And the pleated bodice and box pleated skirt is jarring to me (although my opinion may change after I stare at it for a bit). That straw hat is brilliant, though!
The design elements are not exact, but the cut-in neckline and overall look is too similar for me to be super excited about the dress. The jacket, at least, is new.
Perhaps I am just getting desensitized by all of the uber modern looks Vogue has been producing, but I really like Vogue 1384. I do not know if I would ever choose to sew this up, but Donna Karan sure does know how to design a dress!
I also find myself very drawn to Vogue 1379, by Tracy Reese. I am not sure about those tab things at the neckline, but the overall fluid look is just lovely.
There are even two new stylish menswear designs! Vogue 8988 makes me want to work on a double-breasted suit - why does a man's jacket always have that great back vent while none of my jacket patterns include that detail?!
Will you be purchasing any designs from the new offerings?
