The Vogue 1280 Pattern Mystery – Solved

Vogue had one of their online sales recently and I picked up some new spring Vogues including this Donna Karan Vogue 1280:Beats me as to why she has her leg crossed in that odd position but if you look at the line drawing, you can see that it has some pretty interesting details. Or a lot of pattern pieces 🙂 I learned quite some time ago (and from making a lot of Burda patterns) to read over the instructions fully…

The Gary Danko Dress – Vogue 1233

The Pamella Roland dress is finally completed. I am calling it the Gary Danko  dress because that is where I wore it for the first time out as we were entertaining a business associate from Sweden. Although I love the dress, it did not pass the dinner test very well as you will read below. Pattern Description: Close-fitting, lined dress has front darts, princess seams, patch pockets with flaps, cap sleeves, large turned back collar with extensions, partially concealed button closure…

Hurrah for Vogue!

Vogue/Butterick/McCalls  have completely redesigned their websites. As they are all the same company, they have tied all 3 together. When you buy from any of the 3, it all goes to one shopping cart. All I can say is: It’s about time! I like some of the new designs for Spring and there is a $3.99 sale on right now – so I am off to shop! Love this! and this VA VA VOOM!

Marfy Patterns

Got an email this week that Vogue is carrying Marfy Patterns. Actually, I think they have been on there for about a year, but seem to have expanded the number of patterns recently.I don’t know much about them, other than that they are an Italian company with very beautiful and elaborate designs. I have seen some nice outfits made from them on Pattern Review. I looked through what Vogue is offering and they look very nice. But on closer reading,…

And in the what were they thinking category…

I LOVE Vogue Patterns. They are one of the few pattern company’s with some creativity and originality. I look forward to the new pattern designs that come out every season. Imagine my surprise when I received notice of their new spring designs yesterday. I was happy to see that they have a lot of new patterns from designers this season.
