New Vogues!

I enjoy seeing what people are picking from the just released Fall Vogue patterns so here is what I plan to order in the next sale.  (I just missed the latest deadline by a couple of hours - never mind there will be another soon and it's not like I have no other patterns to sew).  I also picked up my August Burda and apart from the pyjama-y section I think it's a great issue.

I have been sewing and have a top and 2 dresses to blog, just waiting for the weather to brighten up a bit so I can get some half decent photos.  Hong Kong got hit by a big typhoon this week and it hasn't stopped raining since.

Anyway....

1316 Rebecca Taylor colourblock dress
I know making this will drive me nuts!


1321 Donna Karan coat.  
I really don't need another coat, but then I probably don't need any more dresses either and it doesn't stop me making them.



1324 Donna Karan blouse & skirt
This is my favourite.



8825 Knit dress





8827 Wrap dress, for wovens & with a draped neckline (also options for pleat neckline or half & half)





8831 Cowl neck raglan sleeve knit tops (also option for long sleeves and hi-lo hem)

I've put the 8827 Wrap dress and the colour block dress on my BVM wishlist.

I love the colour block one...I am new to dressmaking but that is definitely on my to do list!

Poor old HK, sure got a bucketing (as Aussies would say). Glad I wasn't there shopping, would have been most inconvenient! I like your choices of the new Vogues. They have some nice design lines.

I was looking at them when I realized they were on sale, so I got a few, but left the more fall/winter ones for the next sale. I have your favorites on my list too!

Hi Allision, glad to hear you made it through the typhoon. Katharine in Brussels (not my husband, in case he's the one signed in)

Love the Donna Karan coat. Will put that on my list too!

Oooh. I like that color blocked dress. I couldn't figure out what it looked like from the model photo, the line drawing is enticing!

Nice selections Allison :)

Love your selections, and I can't wait to see what you make! I'm also interested in the wrap dress - I actually like the longer length on that one.

I don't hate this offering but I'm not head over heels the way that some other sewists are. I found 4 patterns that I wanted and purchased them in time for the sale. I'm sure that I will see others made up and purchase them in future sales. Can't wait for you to make a few of these up. You always have an interesting take on these.

I want that 1st dress so bad, but I have to practice remaining clam first, cause it will drive me mad too!

Ha, I think you and me and the entire sewing blogosphere fell in love with the colorblock dress. Looking forward to seeing what everyone makes. Looks like it has 5,000 pieces, though.

1324 is my favorite too! They came out with some really great patterns this season.

I think I chose all the same patterns from the new vogue line up. Looking forward to what you do with them!
