New Vogue Patterns

The McCall pattern company has updated their websites for Butterick, Vogue, and McCall.  I got the word from KID MD.  :)  I was just on the McCall's website yesterday, too... I guess it happened overnight. 

Well, they've added a couple of new designers to the Vogue patterns... Rebecca Taylor and Rachel Comey.  I'm soooo excited about Rebecca Taylor because I LOVE her designs!  Best of all, they have a pattern for a suit that I've been waiting to make!!!  I even bought fabric for it last year and was trying to figure out which patterns would come close, but now I don't have to worry.  It's V1169.

From the Vogue pattern website

Here's the suit for sale from Nordstrom for $365.00 last year.  (The picture was saved from the Nordstrom website.)  I just love it!

I didn't get to browse too much on the websites, but so far I like the changes.  It looks fancier.  :)  Until next time... happy creating!

Great-looking suit! I bet you will do a great job. Thanks for the heads-up on the new McCall pattern family sites -- so far I'm feeling a little like I did when I saw Simplicity's new site... and that's all I will say about that... LOL

Andrea said...

That suit is gorgeous!!! I might have to put that one on my list. I can't wait to see yours. =)

KID, MD said...

I like that suit, too. Maybe Vogue is bringing up the game!

@Antoinette - No problem! The websites will take a little getting used to. :)

@Andrea - Hehehe... I don't know when I'll get around to making it, but I'm so excited. Joann will have Vogues on sale next weekend... can't wait!!

@KID, MD - They sure are!

@meli88a - Thanks! I'll definitely have to post my progress... although I'm quite intimidated by the advanced rating.

@Cindy - Me, too!! :)

I love that you wanted to make the suit... and then it came out as its own pattern! How wonderful. I can't wait until the next Vogue pattern sale!

I like the new site. I think it's a little more user-friendly, though it's a little harder to find some things. I give them credit for trying to keep it fresh.

Thanks for the lovely compliment on my blouse. That is such a chic suit and look forward to your version.

Thanks for your comment on my twinset. Don't know how soon I'll get to the Hot Pattern - got to find just the right fabric.

That suit is going to look so much better on you than it does on Vogue's model- can't wait to see it!

NGLaLALa said...

@ASewnWardrobe - Seriously... you should've seen the shock/excitement on my face!

@LindsayT - Agreed. Thanks for stopping by!

@Sheila - Thanks!

@FayeLewis - Thanks! Fabric is key. ;)

@SelfishSeamstress - Thanks!

About the hem lace: most of
the time I use hem lace, but some time I use the hem binding. The hem binding
that I buy lately is supposed to be fusible, but I don't like that at all. So
when I buy the hem binding I just pull the fusible strip right off of it.

First I measure my hem and press it. The whether I'm using hem lace or hem
binding I start by placing it at one of the side seams placing it right on the
edge of the hem's raw edge but on the right side of the fabric. I use a medium
zigzag stitch to attach the lace or binding on the right side of the raw edge
overlapping just a little when I get all the way around to the place that I

Next I pin the hem in place and hand stitch the upper edge of the lace or
binding in place. This is just something that I was taught to do in high
school, and now I apply it to garments that I feel are a little special; pants,
skirts or dresses.

Hope this helps, it's nothing really but I like it.

@FayeLewis - Thanks so much! I have some hem lace tape that I want to use.
