See them here.  Very disappointing.

There's a couple I like but probably wouldn't buy

I like V1672 but it certainly wouldn't look like it does in the photos once made in my size and on my figure!

A lot of the other dresses would only suit wide-shouldered people. Not me. I'm searching for a pattern for a mother of the groom dress for an August wedding. Nothing in this release will be suitable.

No, nothing for me either.

Mind you, Vogue rarely does...

All of these are going to be safe because the company that owns the big 4 just sold them to a UK company a couple of days ago.

Nothing exciting me either, the couple of Vogue dress patterns I've got have been made several times so I'll stick with them for the time being.

I’m quite like the culottes and the Marcy Tilton blouse.  Not necessarily for me.....

Just gone back through them again in the hope that they might have got nicer in the meantime. Looking at V1688 - if the model looks like a bag lady in it what hope would I have?

I like 1671 and 1672 but don't think either would look good on me

I have had another look and there is still nothing for me.  However, I see opportunities for



colour blocking in Vogue 1688.

I quite like v1683, and years ago might have bought the pattern, but now I have learned to draft my own probably won't bother.

I quite like the Guy Laroche black and white jacket that looks as if it is made from two halves frankenpatterned together - though maybe I could just make one black jacket and one white jacket instead!  :D
I like the Sandra Betzina top with the 'picture' collar and the Tilton top. You'd have to be brave to wear the Zandra Rhodes dress - much flesh on show there. V1673 would be nice on a thin person. I quite like the asymmetric shirt V1678 but just today a very similar pattern from Sewing Workshop I got on eBay has arrived - so no need for another asymmetric shirt. The Anne Klein tops V1681 are quite nice and you do get two separate tops in one pattern.

I guarantee that if you are under 50 and you wore the dress in the Julio Cesar pattern V1677 you will be asked 'when it's due'. It's a maternity wear pattern surely. :S
