Well the new Mccall patterns for summer came out the other day and I am happy to report that I won't hardly be adding a thing to my stash. You notice I said "hardly". While I thought most of the patterns lacked style and were too youthful for anyone but my 14 year old neighbor, I did like a couple. No, no I take that back, if they weren't too youthful, they were frumpy and dowdy. Yeah, sorry nope, not buying it, not making it, not wearing it. In fact if someone made up some of these aforementioned frumpy garments precisely to fit my body in my colors, I still wouldn't have it. Sorry McCall's this was a big fat miss as far as I'm concerned. I know there are others who may feel differently about this line but its just not hitting it for me.
I do, however, really like these two patterns.
I would make view B of the dress (were I to have an occasion) and I would do some fancy beadwork on the neckband. It's just asking, no begging for embellishment.
Now this top is just a great all purpose tee. I thought of making this with a lovely silk charmeuse. I really love this one, it's a classic.
Thanks McCalls for not adding to my stash (that much).
