Today I'm posting the new McCalls patterns that have caught my eye. I think this is the first collection I've seen from them where I've liked more than one or two patterns. Although I found the children's pattern photos perplexing. Farm animals standing on the heads of small humans?
This dress is very sweet and the model is definitely channeling Miss Zooey Deschanel, which is always a plus in my book. But all those seams? What a nightmare for someone who already has so many fitting issues. I also can't decide if I like or hate the asymmetrical skirt hem.
Pardon my french, but comment charmante, cette robe! The upper left one is just lovely in a 1960s way and the version with the ruffles is kind of cute too, although you would never know in the print they used.
I avoid shirtdresses, even though I like them, largely because of the gappage factor. Those of you who have to FBA know what I mean. But this one comes with separate pattern pieces for different cup sizes! Hallelujah!
Ruffles would probably enhance my bust in a bad way, but it looks darling on the model...
This doesn't really fall into my usual style, but I actually love this type of shirt (the view on the model). They are great in summer with shorts because they're flattering but not clingy, especially when made in rayon jersey. Perfect for the humid weather.
I love a good flowy, wide-leg pant as it oozes classic style, although maybe not in sweatshirt heather grey. Plus it has a yoke, cute pleats and pockets. My one problem with this pattern is the elastic waist in back. Lazy sewing!
Maybe it's just me but I've always drooled over clear raincoats. Practical, but you still get to see your outfit underneath! How hard is it to sew through that stuff?
If I had a little girl, she would have several pairs of those tiered bellbottoms. They are all that is groovy.
Flowers for those of us dreaming of millinery.
