Pattern Picks: Vogue Fall 2012

14 Aug

Vogue has come out with their Fall line up of patterns, here are some of my favorites

V1316

Love the color blocking and the lines.  It seems like it would be a very flattering dress provided the V neck doesn’t end up being too low.  I love how they color blocked it so that the lighter color is in the middle, and it gets darker toward the outside.  Instant slimming!

V8839

I love this cardigan!  I could totally see myself wearing it.  I wonder how well those folds at the top stay so perfectly folded though?  Do you think they would be kind of flappy? Anyone have experience with this style?

V8833

A quite lovely wrap top.  It’s pretty plain, but I think it looks flattering.  The fit (should) at least be easy because you can just wrap it around your body to conform, although the front might turn out gape-y.

V8831

I included this one, just because I thought the style lines were a little interesting.  The shirt is a little longer in the back than in the front, and it has some nice shaping.  I’m not too sure I like the cowl though, it seems kind of wimpy, don’t you think?

V8827

I like the one sided drape on this top (View C) the best.   A wrap dress is such a versatile thing to have in your closet!

V1320

I think I just love the fabric on this one.  Large hounds tooth anyone?  Don’t mind if I do.

V1319

This coat shape was all over the runways this year.  I’m not sure who (other than models) can pull it off though.   Instead of defining the waist, they have added more fabric making a kind of egg shape.  Obviously super skinny super tall people look okay in it, but would a normal person?  Would the extra fabric disguise a little bit of a tummy, or highlight it?  This is one of those shapes I’d have to find in a store and try it on before I wasted my time (and fabric) trying to sew it!

What were your favorites?  Have you ever taken a chance with a clothing shape?

    […] one or both as your tastes see fit.  And that large print hounds tooth I was drooling over in my pattern picks?  I just had to include a similar large hounds tooth print jacket here.  I think the preppy-ness […]
