Arg, the more busy I am, the more new stuff pops up. Oh well, these posts don’t take as long as my pattern review or skating posts, so I won’t worry about it too much. In any case, McCall’s also has new fall patterns. I found more to like than I did with Simplicity, but again, I don’t know how many of these I will be rushing out to get right away.
Firstly, a new costume pattern! Don’t know how much I need this, as I already have dresses and cloaks, but it could be useful for making a Cinderella type gown, so I may pick it up at a sale at some point:
|M6420 – liking the red design.|
I also like this simple dress pattern:
|M6379 – basic dress|
Don’t know why, I just sort of like it, despite its simple design. I also really like the pattern for these bags:
I don’t know how happy my machine would be sewing up a bag, but I like the style of these bags, and it might be nice to have the option of making one at some point.
Also, this pattern looks comfy, but I don’t know if I will be getting it or not:
I feel like it might look sloppy and ridiculous if I try to wear it, but it looks comfy and easy in the pictures. I don’t know. Something to ponder.
I also ponder this shirt pattern:
I am strangely drawn to that shirt. However, I also think I could take one of the Burda sack shirts, add a drawstring to the waist, and call it a day. Another pattern I will have to think about.
Then, of course, there were the patterns that left me shaking my head…
Why must the shoulder pads come back, why!?!?! I mean, yeah, they are starting small, but we all know they are going to get bigger. Ugh. Let the 80s rest in peace. I almost prefer the 70s disco fishing gear BurdaStyle is all about right now. Sigh.
Oh, and speaking of Burda, I am sorry I laughed at the asymmetrical shirts! They don’t got nothin’ on McCall’s 6400:
Now, before you say, oh, it’s not sooooo bad, it is just the way the model is standing, let me present Exhibit B, the line drawing:

Erhm, yeah. Now, I am not against asymmetrical clothing (I use asymmetry a lot in my skating costumes) but this seems like just a little much.
So yeah, new McCall’s. I don’t know. They have some new skinny pants, some jumpers, and lots of kids clothes that you can look at here. None of which I would wear, so they don’t really interest me, although they are rather modern looking jumpers and skinny pants. As with Simplicity, I am not finding a lot of the new stuff that I like that seems significantly different from patterns I already have. I do want that bag pattern, and probably the dress and the costumes, but not really too much else from the new batch. I am sort of excited to see the fall Butterick and Vogue though, since I am usually more drawn to their patterns than I am to McCall’s.
