Two dresses from the Vogue Summer 2014 Collection

What do you think about the Vogue 2014 summer pattern collection? It has been out for a little while, and I have seen a few postings around the blogosphere chatting about it, but certainly not a firestorm of opinions. I am not exactly overwhelmed by the collection as a whole, but I am definitely drooling over these 2 summer dresses!

I love,love, love the big collar and topstitching on this simple wrap dress, Vogue 8992. I think it would be great in navy or black linen, or possibly a silk/cotton/linen-type fabric. I definitely want it to be a solid colored fabric. And since summer days in Seattle are limited, the fact that it would sew up in a snap is a plus in my book. It’s got a touch of drama, don’t you think?

I know, you have seen this dress before. But Vogue 8997 has a deep V in the back which caught me eye, and POCKETS. Practical, pretty, and could be dressed up or down depending on fabric. And since I (am pretty sure I) don’thave anything like this in my stash, so it might make it onto the summer 2014 dresses-to be-made pile.

My vote for the worst pattern in the collection? Vogue 9012. Bleah. That is all.

Do you have any favorites in this collection? Any haters?

Happy sewing!

    • Hahahaha – throwback to the sixties? Probably doing the sixties a disservice! 😉 If I actually get those dresses made up in time to wear them on the 3 nice summer days in Seattle I will review/post about them. Fingers crossed!
