I can do fancy stitches and 7 different buttonholes with just a touch of a button. There's all sorts of tricks this machine can do that it'll take me a while to learn and remember. but that's part of the fun. The summer has been crap and my thoughts on sewing have been veering towards the autumn wardrobe recently.
I picked up Vogue UK magazine the other day and was very pleased to see the trouser suit or pant suit is making a comeback for this season. When I was three years old an aunt asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up and I answered "Wear trouser suits." It's one of my earliest memories.

So why do Vogue patterns produce ONE pants suit in the new pattern season? Note the jacket length... while I'm not an avid follower of fashion I try to remain at least knowledgeable about what's on trend (so I know how far off the mark I actually am) - longer jackets are back - thank goodness! but not at Vogue patterns
Like almost all of you, I found these new patterns to be disappointing and quite uninspiring. I managed to pick only one that I know would suit me and that I would buy.
