Vogue Winter/Holiday Pattern review

The Vogue Winter/Holiday collection is just out, and I think there are some real gems in this collection. Here are some of my favorites from this offering… 

Oh, I wish I was 20 years younger (who I am kidding? more like 30!!) so I could rock this gorgeous Badgley Mischka dress at my husband’s office holiday party. This dress is pretty AND sexy, and beautifully styled to boot. Emerald green satin – smashing!

V1273

Kaye Unger is known for her feminine dresses, and this one is adorable. I think it would make the perfect LBD, or I’d love it in any holiday jewel tone, too. The front tucks and the pleats on the sleeves add distinctive detailing to this basic sheath shape, while still retaining the clean lines Kaye is known for.  

V1271

I know Belville Sasson had a wedding dress years ago with a very similar shoulder treatment, but this dress is pretty and very wearable. I love the back V-neckline, too.  

 V1272

I love the element of surprise in my clothes –  take a look at the back of this Pamela Rolland dress. Don’t you love that swingy back skirt attached to the slim sheath front?

V1265

Koos Van Den Akker is a bit of a one-trick pony, but I do like both the scale and shape of this reversible coat.

V1277

I double-heart this Guy Laroche wrap dress. I’m not sure I can wear something quite this boxy on the top, but on the right figure shape this would be dynamite.

V1268

Here is a new jeans pattern for non-stretch denim; possibly even with a rise that is high enough for those older than 14 to wear.

V8774

If you are into the vintage vibe, I think dress and jacket suit is as sweet as can be!

V8767

Marcy Tilton has a lovely collection of new bags, and any one of them would make a beautiful gift.

V8783

IMHO these are some real goodies that will add a bit of spice to your wardrobe this holiday season. Of course, personally I am attracted to all the lovely holiday dresses. Too bad I have only one or 2 events a year where I could wear such pretties! How about you? Does anything tickle your fancy in this collection? I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject, so sign in and add a comment!

Happy sewing!

  1. The first dress is lovely. I think that the strapless dresses are the sexiest types to wear as long as you are comfortable showing off the skin. Even for colder weather, just put on a shawl and enjoy the compliments. I think the strapless designed dress and a shawl will make a stylish combo.
