New McCall’s Fall 2015

The latest collection from McCall’s has been released – you can see the new patterns here.  On the whole, I think this collection is pretty great.  They’ve got a nice mix of silhouettes and garment types, and everything feels very modern.  I even think that, for the most part, the fabric choice and styling of the model photographs are right on point.  There are a lot of patterns I’m excited about in this release, but it feels very much like a collection that will have something for everyone.

M7256 M7256

M7265 – I really like this coat pattern.  The different lengths of the peplum are great, and the ruffled collar is a fun detail.

M7254 M7254

M7254 – I’m mildly obsessed with this jacket/vest pattern.  I love the different length options, and I’m definitely imagining a color blocked version on the near future.

M7262 M7262

M7262 – Khaliah Ali pattern.  There have been a lot of waterfall front coat patterns in the past, but the options for the closures on this pattern makes it a little more versatile.

M7257 M7257

M7257 – A simple bolero jacket patter.

M7255 M7255

M7255 – A McCall’s Easy Pattern.

M7259 M7259

M7259 – The Archive Collection (circa 1927).  I love how the combination of the coat and cape give such a dramatic silhouette.

M7250 M7250

M7250 – The Archive Collection (circa 1927).  I also really love this shirt!  Style B is very obviously a 1920s silhouette, but version A could easily be incorporated in a modern wardrobe.

M7244 M7244

M7244 – Tracy Reese Plenty pattern .  I love this dress pattern, and it would be easy to leave off the skirt to have a nicely fitted top as well.  It will be a great dress for fall, but could easily be layered in the winter.  Definitely going on my wishlist.

M7243 M7243

M7243 – I love this dress too!  The crossover design on the top is simple, but still interesting.

M7241 M7241

M7241 – ABCD Cup Sizing.  Another pattern that will be great for layering.

M7240 M7240


M7242 M7242

M7242 – Laura Ashley.  I actually rather like simple shape on this maxi dress.

M7246 M7246

M7246 – Melissa Watson for Palmer Pletsch

M7245 M7245

M7245 – Designer Joi.

M7249 M7249

M7249 – I’m loving this pattern too.  Another pattern that looks great as is, but could also look good layered under a blazer.

M7248 M7248

M7248 – I actually really like this top.  It has a nice flowy quality, without being too oversized.

M7247 M7247

M7247 – Interesting cross over design.

M7252 M7252

M7252 – Nancy Zieman – Interesting draped top.

M7251 M7251

M7251 – Tracy Reese

M7258 M7258


M7253 M7253


M7263 M7263

M7263 – Khalia Ali, McCall’s Easy pattern

M7261 M7261

M7261 – I’m loving this exercise pattern too!  The tops are nice and fitted, and the leggings are pretty interesting too.

M7269 M7269

M7269 – Cosplay bodysuits, always a useful pattern to have on hand.  Well, at least for people who do a lot of costumes.

M7270 M7270

M7270 – Kimono inspired costume pattern

M7271 M7271

M7271 – I’m always a sucker for the poofy princess style costume pattern.  This one clearly inspired by the latest incarnation of Cinderella’s Fairy God Mother.

M7267 M7267

M7267 – Barbie sized doll clothes pattern.

M7266 M7266

M7266 – Larger sized doll clothes.

M7265 M7265

M7265 – Whistlepig Creek.  Looks like a handy tote bag pattern.

I’ve really been appreciating the McCall’s promotional videos for each season – they’ve definitely pointed out fabric choices and styling options I hadn’t originally thought about.  Here is the McCall’s video for fall:

So, what do you all think?  Is this release as much a hit for you as it is for me?  Or are your fall sewing plans already all laid out?  Feel free to discuss in the comments!

  1. McCall’s patterns often don’t really call out to me, but this season’s set of offerings has quite a few patterns I’d buy, and I liked the promo video too! In particular, patterns M7254, M7242, and both the M7248 and M7247 blouse patterns all are quite lovely! Thanks for doing this review of this collection! I look forward to seeing your review of the New Look collection that just came out. : )


  2. M7244 — with the right fabric this could be an ice skating practice or test dress.
    And the dress with the pleated skirt–how very divergent 😉

    I like the exercise outfit.
