New Vogue – Fall 2016

I’m a bit late getting around to posting the newest pattern releases.  I just finished 11 skating costumes last week, and I’ve got 6 more to work on before nationals, but I think I’m going to make it.  I may even have time to sneak in a sewing project for me!  I’ll be posting progress photos to Instagram, and hopefully have something worth blogging about by the end of the week.  I’ve also got posts in-progress for the August Burda and the Burda Fall/Winter envelope patterns, so hopefully those will be on the blog soon.

In any case, the fall Vogue patterns have been released.  On the whole I’m a bit underwhelmed, though there are a few standout designer patterns.  I’m not sure if I’m reaching pattern stash saturation or if I’m just not impressed by this collection in particular.  I sort of feel like I’m coming to the realization that there are only so many pretty dresses I can wear in a lifetime, and even less time in which to sew them.  In any case, there are some patterns of interest from the new Vogue collection, so let’s take a look:

V1513 – I’m actually really liking this Badgley Mischka design.  I’m not usually much of a ruffle person, but here I think it really is the perfect accent for this otherwise basic dress.

V1514 – I’m also rather liking this Bellville Sassoon design.  The cutout and gathered design looks quite flattering.

V1511 – I’m not sure I need to add this Rachel Comey design to my stash, but I do rather like this design – it’s a nice take on the shirtdress and has lots of interesting details.

V1512 – This Tracey Reese design uses color blocking in an interesting way to create the illusion of a smaller waist.

V1510 – The Sandra Betzina pattern isn’t really my style, but there are a few other bloggers who could totally rock this.

V1515 – Not really loving the neckline or pocket on this Sandra Betzina design.

V1516 – This Tom and Linda Platt design looks pretty cozy (view A).  The view B shirt could be a fun way to mix interesting fabrics too.

V1517 – Love the jacket in this Anne Klein design.  The pants aren’t bad either.

V9196 – This Very Easy Vogue design looks like it would be flattering and pretty easy to sew.  Not sure I love where the seam crosses the bust, but that might just be me.

V9197 – Custom Fit, Very Easy Vogue.  Looks like a pretty basic dress design, but the Custom Fit options are always nice to have in a pattern.

V9198 – Not much to say about this Very Easy Vogue pattern.

V9199 – Another basic Very Easy Vogue pattern.

V9200 – I’m actually sort of liking the interesting curved detail on the front of this dress design.

V9201 – Another cute take on the shirtdress.

V9202 – This dress looks similar to others Vogue has produced before, but the fact that this is a Custom Fit pattern is nice.

V9204 – Interesting how the tie detail also works as a back collar on this blouse pattern.

V9205 – Not sure how this gathered top would look in real life.  It’s a Very Easy Vogue pattern, so it should be pretty easy to construct.

V9206 – Not really loving this shape of this tunic, but the asymmetric buttons are an interesting detail.

V9207 – This Marcy Tilton top looks a bit odd in the line drawing, but has an interesting drape on the model.

V9216 – I actually rather like this Marcy Tilton pattern though.  The vest creates an interesting shape, but those leggings are well fit.

V9209 – This is an interesting wrap skirt design.  I’m sort of digging the pocket details.

V9210 – Also loving the options on this legging pattern.

V9211 – Very Easy Vogue poncho.  Meh.

V9212 – This jacket pattern has some interesting design features going on.  I might get it just for the collar, though the pocket placement looks like it is in a really comfortable sport.

V9213 – Another long draped cardigan.  Meh.

V9214 – Not really loving the pants in this Very Easy Vogue pattern.  The jacket could be an interesting take on the peplum trend.

V9215 – I’m liking the skirt in this Wardrobe pattern.  Not much else here of interest.

V9217 – Kathryn Brenne wardrobe.  I feel like the top or the trousers could be of interest, but I’m not sure how I feel about all of these pieces together.

V9218 – Sort of loving this Vogue nightgown pattern.

V9219 – This Malia Janveaux children’s coat pattern is sort of adorable.  Of course, I may just be obsessing over it because I’ve recently been watching the Great British Sewing Bee.

V9220 – Nothing particularly new about a man’s shirt pattern, but the different fitting options here are nice.

V9221 – A Kathryn Brenne accessory set.  The bag looks great for when you want to travel light.

V9222 – TaFa belt pattern.  I really like adding belts as an accent piece, so this looks like a pattern I’d get a lot of use from.

And that’s it.  On the whole, not a lot of patterns I feel like I need to add to my stash, but there are a few stand outs that will probably join my collection.  What do you all think?  See anything that is going on your fall sewing list?  Or is this release a total pass?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!

  1. There’s nothing in this collection that makes me want to rush out and buy patterns right away, but I can see plenty of designs I’ll actually make up and wear so I suspect I’ll get a few of these once the sale comes around. I’d never make the Belville Sassoon dress but the construction’s very interesting.

  2. I hope you will post your skating costumes plus tips on sewing and designing skating dresses. Thanks for all your posts on new pattern.
