Winter/Holiday Vogue Patterns 2015

The latest collection from Vogue patterns is here, and it is awesome.  Seriously, I think I want to buy almost everything.  Which is bad because I’m running out of storage space for my patterns.  But there is so much good stuff!  Well, a lot of pretty stuff anyway.  I’m really excited, in case you couldn’t tell.   Let me show you why:

V1475  V1475

V1475 – Badgley Mischka.  Love this!  So elegant.  It looks great in the sequins, but it would look fantastic in a velvet or jersey too.

V1474 (1)V1474

V1474 – Tom and Linda Platt.  The front of this gown is pretty standard, but the draped detail on the back is lovely.

V1480 V1480

V1480 – Donna Karen.  Love this snazzy alternative to a gown.  It could also be a really great casual piece in a different fabric.

V1468 V1468

V1468 – Nicola Finetti.  I like the usage of color blocking here.

V1469  V1469

V1469 – Lialia by Julia Alarcon.  Pipping + pockets = perfection.

V1470  V1470

V1470 – Tom and Linda Platt.  Really like the casual sophisticated vibe here.

V1471  V1471

V1471 – Nicola Finetti.  Similar to styles we’ve seen before, but it is still a nice silhouette.

V1472  V1472

V1472 – Zandra Rhodes.  I can’t say I would wear it, but it is an interesting use of volume.  I could see the top being a good layering piece though.

V1473 V1473

V1473 – Belville Sassoon.  Another style I don’t think I would wear, but I’m oddly fond of in the photo.  Maybe I’m just excited by the pretty lace and bright color.

V1477 V1477

V1477 – Today’s Fit by Sandra Betzina.  The internet has informed me that the twist top trend is over, but I still like it.

V1478 (1) V1478

V1478 – Today’s Fit by Sandra Betzina.  The wooly coat is a bit much, but I am a fan of the longer version.

V1479 V1479

V1479 – Isaac Mizrahi.  Nice classic looking coat without too much seaming detail.

V9145  V9145

V9145 – Claire Shaeffer.  Love the interesting use of different colors here.  I really want to sew this just for the fun of sewing this pattern.

V9146 V9146

V9146 – Very Easy Vogue.  Basic dress, but a flattering style.

V9147  V9147

V9147 – Very Easy Vogue.

V9148V9148

V9148 – I really like this one.  Interesting use of a twist detail.

V9149  V9149 (1)V9149

V9149 – A/B, C, D cup sizing.  Love this dress.  Very simple/classic style, but Vogue did a great job of choosing fabric and styling.

V9150 V9150

V9150 – Really like this too!  I’m picturing it in a fun ponte knit print, or with some cool color blocking.

V9151 V9151

V9151 – Very Easy Vogue.

V9152  V9152

V9152 – Love the collar treatment here.

V9153 V9153

V9153 – Marcy Tilton.  Interesting take on the voluminous top trend.

V9154  V9154

V9154 – The asymmetric version is interesting, but the short version (view A) would be great for layering with tights in the winter.

V9155  V9155

V9155 – Nice classic trousers.

V9156  V9156

V9156 – Very Easy Vogue.  Interesting collar with simple lines.

V9157V9157

V9157 – A/B, C, D cup sizing.  WANT!  This coat is totally drool worth.  I want one in every length, and the cup sizing is going to make fitting so easy!

V9158 V9158

V9158 – Very Easy Vogue.

V9159 V9159

V9159 – Very Easy Vogue.  Ok, I think the matching tunic and pants is a bit pajama-ish, but I’m picturing the top over some solid black leggings, some boots, maybe with a belt…  I dunno.  I think it has potential.

V9160V9160   ]

V9160 – The jumpsuit has definitely been a trend this year, but I’m not sure how I feel about this one.

V9161 V9161

V9161 – Marcy Tilton.

V9162 V9162

V9162 – Kathryn Brenne.  I don’t know how I feel about having all of these pieces in the same look, but they could be good to mix with other pieces in a wardrobe.

V9163V9163

V9163 – Vogue Wardrobe.  I really like the hoodie/jacket.  Looks easy to make and wear.

V9164V9164

V9164 – Kathryn Brenne.  Might be fun to make a clutch to go with one of the designer gowns for a big holiday party.

V9165 V9165

V9165 – Mary Jo Hiney.  These jewelry boxes look a bit old fashioned, but it might be fun to use the basic patterns to make something a but more updated as gifts.  It is interesting because we haven’t had a lot of crafty patterns from Vogue recently.

And that’s it!  So, what do you all think?  Are you ooohing and aaaahing over the designer patterns like I am?  Or are all of these dresses completely impractical and thus not really interesting for someone looking to increase their pattern stash?  Feel free to discuss the highs and lows in the comments!

  1. I was a bit underwhelmed by the whole collection which goes to show we are all different or maybe I just have too many patterns already that I don’t see anything new here. I do however really like the dress 9148 with the drape twist thing going on at the front – no surprise there – and will add that to my list.
