Vogue Patterns has released their fall pattern line. These fresh patterns will help you create a great look just in time for the fall season.

Pattern 1317 features a dress with a deep neckline slit, a fitted bodice cut with sleeves, and a lined midriff with a single layer tie. The skirt of the dress has front pockets and an invisible back zipper. Detailing includes stitched hems, topstitching, and edgestitching. This dress is perfect for fall made in a light double knit or synthetic suede. The pattern allows for sizes 8-24.
Pattern 1325 includes patterns for a jacket, pants, and blouse. The jacket is fitted and lined, with the works: shoulder pads, collar, pockets, and two-piece sleeves. The coordinated pants are slightly flared and semi-fitted, with a raised waist and mock band. They have side-front pockets and a front zipper with hook closure. The blouse is also semi-fitted and has a bias collar that extends into tie ends. The single layer flounce with a narrow hem makes this suit ensemble feminine. The two-piece sleeves have ruching and an invisible zipper, adding more interest. The jacket and pants are great in men's suiting, linen, or crepe, while the blouse softens the structured suit in charmeuse or chiffon. Nylon fusible knit can be used for the interfacing.

Both pieces have an elastic waist and topstitching. Bring these patterns to life with a moderate stretch knit like cotton knit or interlock. Available in sizes 4-26.

With contrast along the collar, front, cuffs, and lower band, this garment is interesting and makes a great addition to a fall wardrobe.

The detachable collar is also lined and designed to be made with faux fur and faux leather or faux suede. The semi-fitted skirt has a slightly raised waist with pockets and a back zipper. Think about making this garment in poplin or sateen. The fitted skirt has an elastic waist and can be made with moderate stretch knits such as double knit or jersey. These pieces are great to wear from the fall into the winter.
