New McCall's Patterns

McCall's released their summer line last night. Have you checked them out?

McCall's 7154 and McCall's 7153 from their Archive Collection would be a perfect creations for a Great Gasby party!  

I'm quite smitten over the Hollywood glamour of this dress.  

Out here in the prairies there is rarely an occasion for such a beautiful dress unless perhaps someone would made it up as a wedding dress. It would make a gorgeous wedding dress as well.  

I really like how McCall's created this dress with the directional stripes. Now this dress I could see myself wearing except I don't need another dress pattern.

To be completely honest if there is one pattern that I would pick up from this release it would be the swimsuit pattern despite the fact that I don't swim.  

It is the bottoms of McCall's 7168 that I have my eyes on. I wouldn't mind trying to make those bottoms into a pair of knickers with lace on the side front panels.  

How about you?  Were there any McCall's summer patterns that caught your eye?  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. the first dress is stunning, but as I said in other blog where can I go dress like that? Maybe to a Suppressed Desire Party!.

  2. I was disappointed in this release and yet happy because that meant I wouldn't be adding to my pattern stash, that is until you mentioned the bathing suit pattern I somehow missed. That pattern has possibilities!

  3. Ooooh! I never thought of making the bathing suit pattern into briefs! I love looking at the new patterns. I don't think I am tempted though.


McCall's 7630: Pullover Top

It's an easy sewing project for a loose-fitting pullover top. It's my second go with this pattern and I still want to make another ...
