Great excitement the other day as my new Vogue patterns arrived. I managed to restrict myself to four this time: three from the new collection and one older Chado Ralph Rucci design, Vogue 1107. I picked the Rucci because I’ve made two of his other patterns and loved them both. This one’s not quite my style but it looks like an interesting sew.
I had a quick look at the instruction sheets when it arrived. Five sheets (just for the English instructions; there’s another page for French). One hundred and seven steps. Some of the steps are teaching you basic macramé to make the belt but they also skip over making bound buttonholes in about two stages. I think this one is going to make Vogue 1073 and Vogue 1239 look like a walk in the park. Each of those took about a month to sew. Maybe I’ll save this one for the Christmas holidays!
