New Vogues

Well, before I sorted through my patterns and discovered the false economiy of buying patterns in threes, I bought three of the new Vogues.  I have made one of them up already though.  Vogue 1282 Donna Karan.  I loved this pattern immediately, and got straight online to see if there was suitable fabric available before I even bought the pattern.  In a hugely inspired fashion, I bought grey, same as the pattern envelope.  I tell you, if I could have ordered the model's hairstyle, I would have done that too!







I'll put all the details in a pattern review, so pop on over there to read about it.

I picked up the shoes in an op shop this week for $8.  They are a deep olive green and will perfectly match a dress that I have fabric for and not made yet.  They look never worn and were so comfortable that I forgot that I was actually looking for football boots for my boys.

  3. Love your outfit, the front drape to the top is fantastic - has the top got some metallic threads to it or is my eyesight going? This was one of the patterns I picked up in the sale too - but it has turned cold in Melbourne so I might have to wait a while.
