I’m working on mine, with my inspiration garment being a pair of riding boots that have brogue styling and lace-up back.

Vogue just came up with a stellar list of new summer patterns, their website seems to be down so I’ll post photos when it’s up again.

I also ordered a Manequim magazine from Brazil on e-bay this week, as well a work collegue who’s Brazilian said she has a friend sending some issues up in a parcel for me.  (I had asked her to find some a while ago) Woo Hoo!
