If you love to sew like me then you must be so excited for McCalls summer patterns! This was such a hard decision to pick 5 so I picked 6! McCall patterns are one of my favorites. The directions are super easy to follow and I love that you can mix and match styles to make it your own. So, if you like the sleeve on one pattern but want to make it a dress, all you have to do is use the patterns from each. You may have to tweak it a bit but I love that you can really customize your outfits.
Wow! I can’t wait to make both A and C!!!! I think what I’d do is use the bodice of B or use a puff sleeve from another. Loving the ties on the legs from view A! As for C I can totally see this in a linen for cool summer nights out.
Meadow McCalls pattern is so lovely. The high slit trend is so huge right now. I can see this as a cover-up for the beach or pool! I would love to do this in a beautiful eyelet fabric or one similar to the model!
Once I saw this I instantly wanted to use linen! Is anyone else obsessed with linen lately? I love that you can play with the length of this dress and the sleeves. View C with view A sleeves is what I’m thinking for this look.
Saw this dress and instantly feel in love!!!! All three views are gorgeous!! I have so many ideas for view A and B. It reminds me of something by LoveShackFancy. So I’m thinking some lace and picot trim. Also, a tulle overlay! Ugh….can’t wait till Joanns is open again so I can actually feel fabric again haha!
Such a cool girl style look!!! Picture this with some cute jeans (your cute jeans….my cute jeans…no your cute jeans! It’s all I can think of with Kris and Kendall Jenner haha!) But…view C looks like some kind of Lulu lemon top, am I right?! So with a cool looking spandex fabric or even just a pretty heather grey, it would make it such a cute staple in your wardrobe.
LOVE THESE!!!! View A is such a cute skirt…would look really good with the top above too! View B, without the cuff on the legs, reminds me of a Zimmerman dupe. Definitely need to make a white linen pair! View C need these pants in my life…now! Wow! It’s a great pack!
Now you can see why I couldn’t just choose 5!!!! So many amazing patterns to try out!! Now I need to find fabric!!! It’s so hard buying fabric online since everyone is making masks, it’s taking so long for orders to go through that the adrenaline of excitement goes down…you know…and of course while I’m home from work when I could be sewing so much, I can’t…but I’m keeping my head up and hoping that joanns will speed up my orders!
