Following on the Burda photoshopping thread, I am always amazed at pattern companies that pose their models in ways that are not only completely unnatural, but give no indication as to what the garment is supposed to look like. Vogue seems to do this a lot. My current favourite is the black tunic here, with the window sill pic being a close second.

Agreed! Idiotic looking.
Also, in the your second link the model is wearing a pair of shoes that make my back hurt just looking at them.

Actually, I DO stand (and wear the shoes) like the second picture...

...usually when my 2 year old trips me up and I am gracefully landing on my hands. The foot up is simply for effect. :)

The first is just getting over my semi muddy yard.

Of course I had to look at the links. Of course I had to "look around" once I got to the site. Of course I had to buy some patterns. Of course I had to join the club to get the discount. Thanks....I think. Happy 2014!!
I know you did not mean to be an enabler. These things just happen. Might as well start the new year with some great new patterns on the pile with the ones I never made in 2013. LOL!

Yep... you can't see what it supposed to look like, and if you can sort of guess then you are too busy doing that to decide if you want to buy the pattern. Then I bet they wonder why no one is buying the pattern.

Something similar I can't stand is on nearly every tv show where a woman is standing, at some point she is standing with her legs crossed. To me, she looks like a 5 year old that really has to pee. I am sure some genius has told her it makes her 100 lb "fat" self look so much thinner. To me, it just looks so dumb and unattractive I have a hard time focusing on what she is saying.

I always wonder what the models must think of home sewists. The poses, props, terrible fabric choices, an some times flat out bizarre designs...heck, sometimes the pattern companies make us look like a bunch of weirdos.

What about the Hollywood Stars who stand cross legged...looking like they need to find a toilet! My snarky 2 cents.

The cross-legged pose has always gotten a giggle from me. Once upon a time, ladies were taught to stand erect with one foot slightly in front of the other in a modified basic ballet position, resulting in a relaxed, graceful posture. At some point someone took it too far and apparently decided women looked thinner when they twisted their legs and hips into pretzel shapes.

Frankly I'd accept the appearance of an extra five pounds rather than be photographed in a "gotta go" position, but I'm old and more devoted to comfort than fashion.

I've quit fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

It's just fabric; we can out-think it.
