Have you seen the new Spring release from Vogue patterns? Let's just say, I'm happy that I'm not on a pattern fast this year. 

Vogue 9241
I really don't need another dress pattern, and it is a little fancy for my simple prairie-gal lifestyle but my-oh-my, this Kathryn Brenne design is stunning. 

Vogue 9244

Now this Marcy Tilton design fits my life-style better. And I have a striped cotton knit sitting in my stash that would be perfect. I just need to get my hands on this pattern and get to work.  

Vogue 1531, a Julia Alarcon design, is another dress that I don't need but if I had the figure and somewhere to wear this, I would be tempted.  

My favourite of the spring release would be Vogue 9248 for this jacket and pants pattern. It is available in sizes 2 to 8 and goodness it is too cute.  

What about you, any spring patterns catching your eye and imagination?  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. Just an FYI, the Kathryn Brenne pattern is actually 9241. I only know because I wanted to see the line drawing. This really is a lovely dress.

  2. Oops! Thank you for pointing out my error, I appreciate it and will fit it right away. Thanks.

  3. I was so happy to see the litle boy's suit. Children and men's pattern selection really needs to expand, and this one is a classic!
