Vogue patterns were on sale yesterday at Hancocks so I picked up several. Here's what I got.

This is V8577. I love the knee length blue version. I'll probably wait until Spring because this seems like a warm weather pattern to me, but I can totally see this in a nice linen. The view with the collar and sleeves also intrigues me. I'm imagining it in a cotton print- maybe a 30's repro- with contrast collar, cuffs, waistband and pocket bands. Knee length, of course!

This one is V8613, a knit shirtdress! Once again, I love the blue knee-length version, but the short print view with the cap sleeves is really nice, too. I love the extra seam at the shoulder and the gathers at the bust instead of darts. A muslin will definitely be required.

And here we have V8511. This may be my next project. I love both views, but I'd really like to make the view with sleeves right now out of a pretty tweed. The sleeveless version would be great for summer made in linen.

The muslin of NL 6909 is almost complete. I sewed one cap sleeve on and I want to sew a long sleeve on also so I can decide which one I want to go with. That's right- I said "go with." The muslin fits, I like the look, all I have to do now is pick a sleeve and start cutting!
