Another fashion magazine goes bust

Another fashion magazine goes bust. I used to buy Vogue Patterns magazine (which was owned by McCall Patterns) on the newsstand (it came out every 2 months) and I wondered why I didn't see the new issue. The magazine has folded and the last issue was the February/March 2019 issue. 

 

I liked it even though I didn't really sew much as I could see current fashions without all the other junk that I wasn't interested in. I notice that there's a lot less magazines at the stores now and there's a lot of filler magazines like bookazines devoted to one random but popular topic now.

@TY1   So, is it Vogue or McCall's that has gone belly-up, sotospeak.

It's Vogue Patterns print magazine that's been discontinued. The Vogue Patterns magazine is a separate corporate entity from Vogue magazine or Conde Nast.

 

Vogue Patterns still exists, it was bought out by McCalls Patterns several years ago.

Even though I sewed my clothing for many years, I cannot say I ever bought this magazine.  However, I did use Vogue patterns now and then.

 

They were always a bit more challenging than the regular patterns, but well-worth the trouble.  I can remember teaching myself to make bound buttonholes using their patterns.

 

Going to the store and searching the books for just the right pattern, then, selecting the fabric.

 

Like so many things, changed or gone.

Oh! I never knew there was a Vogue Pattern magazine! I never made anything from a Vogue pattern. They all seemed so tailored, and I'm just (still) an intermediate novice seamstress.

I was getting INSTYLE. For years.... then I realized that 95% of the magazine was huge ads....little content.....never bought another fashion magazine again.

Re: Another fashion magazine goes bust

I’ve been getting Vogue patterns via email for a couple of years. I still get Vogue knitting, but they’ve been promoting the digital mag. It wouldn’t surprise me to see the mag go bye-bye.

Our ladies' arts are dying because so many of us want to be "men."  I want to be a woman.  I wish my vision was still good enough to sew.  I have purchased many Vogue patterns, which I tried to sew but my mother finished.  LOL
