New Vogue Patterns

I actually don't look at the new patterns much -- I have enough as it is, but there are quite a few I like in this latest batch:

This one is a definite yes, because it is a Miyake.

I like this one a lot too -- though I so don't have the lifestyle for this. What I do have is some gorgeous red duppioni, with peep toe heels that match. :)

This Anna Sui dress is darling, but I'm not sure how it will look on someone with an actual bustline.

Dramatic! I love the sleeved blouse, but again, how will it look on someone who is fuller than a B cup? I actually would get some use out of something like this -- I could wear it to church with a tweed skirt. The sleeveless versions are v. pretty too, however I know they'd feel maternity to me.

I suppose I'll keep my eye out for when Vogues go to $3.99, and pick up the Miyake for sure.

Totally agree with you on your picks. I've picked the same ones plus a couple more. I noticed a lot of folks don't like this collection. I'm pretty pleased with it. And yes, the Miyake for sure.

Now all you have to do is buy some of the Anna Sui fabric presently driving me crazy at Fabric Mart and you would have a great new outfit!

Oh, that red dress is awesome! I'd make it in a cute cotton print. Thank you for the inspiration :)

Miyake retired several years ago so the designs Vogue currently publishes under his name are not personally designed by him. If you compare the "Miyake" Vogue designs published in the last five or so years, with those published in the 80s and 90's you will see a difference in style. Me? I like the old stuff best.
