The new Spring Vogue Collection has been released, along with two new Vintage Vogue designs.
Vogue 9082 would fit right in with the recent Dolce & Gabbana collections. The dress is rather bland, but I LOVE the jacket and the notched detail on the shell is a nice touch.
And I see quite a few wonderful little details on Vogue 9083 . . .welt pockets and pleats, princess seamed bodice with double darts, and a matching button-on collar. This one reminds me of one of my favorite Butterick designs (I still prefer the Butterick, but this one has definite possibilities).
Does anyone remember the vintage accessories line? I guess the patterns did not sell very well, because they disappeared from the catalog rather quickly. Time to pull those old patterns out and make myself a hat, I think!
Vogue 9076 reminds me of a hybrid of a late 1930s pattern, one from the 1970s, topped off with a splash of Anna Sui (just imagine it in a fabulous silk or rayon print).
There are quite a few other designs with some amazing seaming details. And while they are not my style, I am definitely pleased to see that Vogue is continuing to produce more complex designs . . . let's hope the trend lasts! On the other hand, this means more patterns to add to the stash, and project ideas to add to the queue (that list is getting really, really long . . . )
What do you think of the new designs - will any of them be added to your wish list?
