Vogue Patterns just published their Winter Holidays pattern
collection and it is full of surprises, and some wonderful choices for your
winter sewing. Overall, what is best
about this collection is that there are some new names in the book.
Kayla Kennington has knocked it out of the park with her new
pattern Vogue 9229. These tunics with overlays are very current and wearable
for many body types. I love the sleeve and collar variations and feel like I
could sew both View A and B, and end up with two totally different, yet
fantastic, garments. These tunics are great
for both work or evening attire. This is one that I’m definitely sewing.
It was so nice to see a pattern from Koos Couture, Vogue
1521. He is gone but not forgotten. This is a wonderful pullover with very cool
and interesting use of fabric overlay on the sleeves and body. V1521 could be a
comfortable alternative for work or casual wear.
Vogue 1529, the design from Patricia Jeanne Keay, is the very
nicest coat pattern I have seen in a long time. It is a lovely silhouette with
classic lines and a pretty neckline.
Princess seams will make it easier to fit and the pleats should make it
feel nice to move in. I like the asymmetrical hemline in the front. This pattern includes quality elements like two-piece
sleeves, decorative stitch details and bound buttonholes. I would snatch up 4-5 yards of good wool or
silk suiting for this coat.
This might be a bit more controversial but I happen to love
the overall look of Vogue 1526 from Paco Peralta – the short-sleeved jacket
over the long-sleeved shirt is a classic workday outfit with some more
interesting design details. The
asymmetrical collar is crisp and striking and I love the off-kilter placement
of the pocket on the shirt.
Let me know what you think of the new patterns.
I just found your site from an ad in Threads Magazine. Thanks for the pattern recommendations - I have added Vogue 9229 and 1526 to my shopping list. I love them both!
Hi Vanessa - thanks for writing and I'm glad you like these patterns. Hope you also like our fabrics! Be well - Susan
