New Vogues are up
These patterns made my short list.
I love the coat and think that it's perfect for the purple Ungaro felted wool I have in stash. I'm still looking for the perfect full pant for several woolens and this might be it! The dress 8409 is at the top of my list. I see it colorblocked, ala Carolyn's latest linen creation, only done in wool double knit. Do you see it too? And I Like the blouse, although I'm doing double and triple takes at those 80s shoulders.
This is the Only OMG What were they thinking at Vogue:
Discussion on PR has suggested The Jolly Green Giant, An elf, (two different ends of the size spectrum but both essentially comical)
I expect that Dsis might like this, as we've discussed jackets in the last week, but I'm not a fan of shrunken jackets on anyone except fairly small women. I don't think they do a thing, proportion-wise, for full busted women, plus size women, or tall women.
There are others, like the funnel neck suit jacket, and lots of interesting shapes/seaming in skirts, that are nice, but I don't need to buy.
So I ask you, what do you love/hate about the new collection?
