Vogue posted new patterns on their site yesterday and I was surprised at how stylish they were! So often it's a bunch of boring business suits but I saw several details that I really liked this time:
The gathered sleeve on this Badgley Mischka jacket, Vogue 1099.
The curved sleeve hem of this Anne Klein jacket, Vogue 1098.
I like pretty much everything about this DKNY jacket, Vogue 1093.
The gathered waistband of this jacket looks very RTW, Vogue 8562.
And - something funny happened. Yesterday Cindy and I were talking over email about the new patterns and I told her that I liked this new Michael Kors dress, Vogue 1090. Then I was at Nordstrom Rack after work and look what I found:
I just had to do a dressing room photo shoot a la Ambika. The dress is 100% wool, unlined. It closes with an invisible zip in the CB seam.
Check out the price tag. Originally $1995, marked down to $699, and 75% off that makes it $175. If I make this, I could probably manage to keep it under $30.
