New Vogue Release

I know I'm late to the news that Vogue released their Spring/Summer line of patterns. But oh my! There are some patterns sitting in my wish list.

There is a new Chanel-esque jacket pattern on the scene, Vogue 8991. It is another Claire Schaeffer pattern and the sleeve detail is divine.


Another cute jacket pattern, Vogue 9009.


This pattern, Vogue 9014, doesn't look like much from the drawing but the top has a full back buttoned closure! And that alone makes it a wish list item.


I don't need sleepwear but I can certainly use a good slip. A nice slip, not those lycra knit things they try to sell in the store. The kind of slip that makes you feel like a million bucks under your dress. And this pattern, Vogue 9015, will fit the bill.


There are lots of dresses too. I don't need another dress pattern. I have enough in my stash to keep me going for a lifetime but if you're looking for a dress pattern this may be the release dedicated to the dress.

How about you, any favourites?

Happy Sewing!

  1. I saw that Claire Shaeffer jacket, but had to turn away. I want it, but have no need. I am trying to sew clothes that fit my lifestyle. I've made some of her patterns and am working on her safari jacket. I love her patterns.

    1. I know! I love the sleeve detail but where would I wear it?

  2. There are quite a few that I liked (including that buttoned-back blouse), but the ones I'm most likely to make and wear are 8992 and 8994. I also liked the sleeveless version of 9006.

    1. That wrap dress is gorgeous, I totally missed that one!

  3. I like the sleeve details on that first jacket, but I don't really understand those under-boob pockets. I don't really want to have to grope my chest just to get into those pockets... :D

    I'm in love with that slip thing, but I think it's more the lace that I'm in love with!

    1. Yes, the pocket placement does seem a bit weird.

  4. There are some lovely patterns this time. I'm trying to ignore their current on-line sale.

    1. I know, did you have more will power than I did?

  5. I liked too many of the patterns this time, just when I think I'm not going to buy anymore :(

    1. This was a very dangerous release for me too. That said, I can wait until they get here!
