Pattern V1348

Go with the light, easy flow of summer with these new patterns! The new Vogue pattern book is out!

TOM AND LINDA PLATT
Tom and Linda Platt designed a fun and flowey dress that is perfect for the start of summer. Pattern V1348 is a misses’ dress that is underlined and lined with a close fit through the bust. It also features side and princess seam pleats, side pockets, a ruffled petticoat attached to the lining, and an invisible back zipper. It is ideally made with a faille, brocade, or shantung fabric, perfect for the warmer summer days to come.

SANDRA BETZINA
For beginners looking for an easy project, try pattern V1355 by Sandra Betzina from her Today’s Fit collection. The pattern contains a pullover, lined top that is close fitting though the bust with cut-in back, and pants that are loose fitting through the hips with a waistband, inside leg drape, and no side seams. Each can be made with drapey knits to keep you cool when the temperatures rise.
