Vision in Red (site)

Hello PR.

Didn't see Vision in Red in the pattern review drop down menu. Also did a general search.

Got nada.

Wondering if anyone has tried ViR patterns. I like the idea of PDF files... but I would like to see their designs on actual people.

p.s. I just ordered Victoria Jones 105. I see there are two VJ (dress) reviews. Most of are men's hawaiian shirts. Very excited about receiving my order, but also curious about seeing VJ designs on actual people... any additional comments on VJ's line are also welcome!

Victoria Jones 105

Somewhere in my sewingroom I have several paper patterns from this company. Of course, I've never made one up.

I was wondering the same thing (which is how I found your post). I've just 'ordered' (with the '3 free a month' deal) the Eva, Tina and Gina dress patterns. They don't have many available at the moment and quite a few of them look the same to me. It's also confusing the way the 3 free and one free are items in their catalogue.

If you're wondering about the pdf side of things .... I've downloaded some from leko/lekala and so far I've put a couple together (tedious but easy). Depending on the pattern (shirt, dress etc.), it can take a lot of paper - just imagine all of those tissue pieces divided into A4 pieces of paper. This week I should get to actually sew one of the leko/lekala dresses .... that's the plan anyway, it's been altered, cut and pinned together on the dressform for over two weeks. (I could say that I'm just checking the stretch and drape but the truth is that other things keep distracting me.)
