Vogue's Awesome Fall 2018 Collection

I absolutely love when the pattern companies release their new collections for the upcoming sewing season.  Over the past several weeks, I've checked out the Fall 2018 offerings from Simplicity, Butterick and McCall and even identified a few patterns that I'm considering adding to my inventory, but I've been eagerly waiting to see Vogue's Fall collection.  So, when I woke up yesterday morning at 4:00 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep, I decided to grab the iPad and check their website instead of staring at my ceiling...and I'm glad I did because the collection had just dropped!

As I clicked through the pattern thumbnails on the new collection's home page, I was struck by the frequency of hearing my inner voice say "Hmm...interesting."  In years past, I've been disappointed with new seasonal offerings from many of the companies, but that's not the case with this collection.  In fact, I was surprised at the number of pattern style that I either liked or loved and felt inspired to share this post on the ones which really stood out for me.

What caught my eye with this pattern was the jacket lapel, which transformed an otherwise basic jacket into a stand-out piece.

Happy New Year!

I know it's been quite some time since my last blog post, and my plan is to share with you what I've been doing for the past year, but I didn't want this opportunity to pass without wishing you a happy, prosperous and blessed 2018.

I am truly humbled that you've taken the time in the past, as well as today, to read about my thoughts, activities and interests and it's my intent - yet again - to develop a more consistent blogging schedule.

With that said...

Continue to be blessed!
