Vogue #1025 and Loes Hinse

beo | Posted in Patterns on

I’m about to make Vogue pattern #1025 in velvet (it was featured on the cover of Theads issue #140).  I would like to do sleeves–should I simply extend the cap sleeves or should I remove the cap sleeve and do a set in sleeve?

Also, has anyone used Loes Hinse patterns?  If so, how do they compare with Vogue?

    In my experience, Loes Hinse patterns are marvelous. In terms of both construction and fit, they have nothing in common with Vogue: Loes' techniques are in many ways simpler and more like those of RTW, and her fit is MUCH more European, quite similar to Burda. I adore her cowl top, a very simple, classic garment:

    You might want to invest in one of her patterns, measure and fit it to yourself using a muslin (test garment), and see what you think.

      Thank you!  I like several of her jacket patterns and the cowl and princess seamed tee.  I'll take the plunge!
