I've been intrigued by this Vogue 8499 skirt and pants for a while but I really wanted them after I saw this version of the skirt on the noile dot net blog.
How fun, how useful!
Also, I found these images on the designer's site which show how cute those same pieces from the pattern cover look when styled.
Then there's Vogue 8430 that I could make out of fleece that I won't need to hem! Sounds like my kind of project!
This one, Vogue 8559 intrigues me too.
I've always loved inventive patterns. I actually had my mother make me many Issey Miyake patterns from Vogue when I was in junior high that she would not have attempted on her own.
Please check out the Marci Tilton website. weather you like her style or not, her site offers a wealth of information.
