The New Vogues Are Here

I’ve been stalking the Vogue website for a couple of days.  I thought, “It’s close to November, they’re having a big pattern sale…. Must be time for the new ones to arrive!” 

There’s a cocoon jacket to keep you warm.

V1332

And I love this bias jacket from Claire Schaeffer with raglans sleeves.

V8845

This is a b.i.g. peplum.

V8866

And fedoras!

V8869

I need this skirt for my frosting collection.

V8858

Oh, my!

The new Vogue patterns are out, but what really struck me when I hit their home page today was this picture.

vogue patterns page Can anyone say Photo-shopped-to-death?  Why take a picture of an already very slim person and make her look smaller than my 13 year old daughter?  I’m disgusted.

EDIT:  Just for the record, Vogue Patterns informed me via Facebook that they never retouch photos except to remove tattoos.  Good to know!  Now I wish they’d get the message that their audience is very tired of seeing the skinniest 3% of the population grace their pages.
