New patterns (Mc) Callin' my name...
The summer McCall's patterns are online and quite a few have caught my eye!
I like the interesting color-blocking options on M6559, but I see this as working best for me in a shorter version than the maxi-length.
M6563 is a lovely drapey knit top - another cute color-blocking option here, too.
Cute t-shirt options from M6566 - these would be fun to embroider or applique on for our Disney trip.
I like the cute knit top options in M6565 - looks like these would need minimal FBA action.
I could sew for both Benjamin and Gracie off M6540 - love everything on this pattern.
There are some stylish outfits for little girls in M6542.
M6543 would be lovely with a smocked insert piece - has the perfect bodice for it.
I think it is pretty neat that they have a pattern to take advantage of the cute ruffled fabrics available now. M6547 is on my shopping list!
Boy pattern alert! M6548 even ventures into color-blocked shorts - awesome!
I like the structured bags of M6579 - these would look great monogrammed.
Sun hats and cute bags - M6577 is a perfect summer sewing pattern.
All I need now is a 99cent pattern sale! Joann's? Hancock's? Hobby Lobby? Who will it be?
