When I posted my review of the McCall’s Winter/Holiday releases, there apparently were a few pattern styles that got left out of the release. If it had been another PJ pattern I would have just let it go, but instead they left off some really great styles, so I felt they warranted their own post:
M7878 – I love this simple wrap coat. I think it has an elegance, and the simplicity would help it pair well with other pieces quite easily. It would be great for a fabric with some lovely drape.
M7877 – This pattern is cool because it is intended for reversible fabrics. The metallic leather look is super cool. I like the two-toned and cropped versions quite a bit.
M7876 – I really like the look of the culottes on the model, but I’m not as excited by the line drawing. I think the styling is pretty cute, but I feel safe passing over this pattern for myself.
M7875 – I know these are PJs, but I really love the robe! It looks like it could be a fancy coat in the right fabrics. It might take a bit of extra work (I’d assume there is no lining included), but I’d totally consider modifying this to be a coat pattern. The PJ pants are fine, but, really, it’s all about the robe.
And that’s it! Most of the patterns made it up on the main page, but these four were left off at launch. I definitely think these help round out the collection by offering some more wearable options to the release. What do you all think? See anything here that changes your mind about your plans for fall/winter sewing?
