summer vogue

The sewing blogs of America were all a-twitter with the new Vogue summer patterns today, so I went to look for myself. And found they were on sale for $3.99 each. So while I already have a few patterns I’ve never touched (but really, not that many, right Elizabeth?) these ones are now on their way.

With my now-much-slimmer bod, I can actually imagine myself in these. Maybe I’m delusional, but I’m going to give it a go.

And then of course I could cover my figure flaws with this cardigan if it turns out I was delusional after all.

I call that win-win.

  1. Ok, I will admit to buying some of those too even though I do not need one more pattern! And you are right, you barely have a collection of patterns. I should give you some of mine. Have you started re-working your dress yet?

    • Elizabeth, not yet, but I am working from home on Friday so will be able to get into it then. Which Vogue patterns did you buy?

    Enablers! :-) I love the first two. I’m pleading the 5th on how many patterns I have.

  3. Love it that you picked a cardi, just in case!

    I totally want to make both dresses for some summer business parties. Have you done any searching around for similar fabric? If you are successful, could you let me know. They are lovely choices.

    • Angela, I’ve been searching online and have so far not found what I’m looking for. I would love to find a happy summer print that’s not too girly or cute, but the designated fabrics usually come in solids only. Once I’ve successfully muslined, I may go downtown to hunt. I’ll be sure to post my findings here.
