My McCall's/Simplicity Summer Picks

I Think Someone is Listening?!

It seems to me usually, when the "Big 4" pattern companies put out their new lines for the season - they are reworked, rearranged and restyled (with ugly fabrics). Has someone heard the cry of the home sewer? STOP IT!!

I've noticed that when the new lines hit for the seasons there are usually pages and pages of the same ole thing and some newer things. They are, however, scaling down a bit on the number of things they put out.  McCall's summer line is out and I like a few things.  Simplicity's is also and I think I like one thing. (LOL!)  Waiting to see what Vogue and Burda have to offer. Anyway here are my pics for Summer from these Big 2:

McCalls
Skirts= M6567 -  Dresses/Tops=M6558

Left Tops=M6565 - Right Tops=M6562
I like that these pieces are to be done in woven fabrics. I have the "knit" versions already! (LOL!) Frankly, I'm running out of knit fabric and my serger is almost dead! I have tons of woven fabric feeling neglected. LOL!

Simplicity
Wardrobe= S1808 - Dresses=S1802 (C. Rowley)
I'm in love with the short set. E,D.  These types of garments look great on my body type.  Can't wait to rock this in seersucker (I got it two springs ago-finally a garment Worthy!!)  The dresses are Cynthia Rowley and I like the sleeveless version.

Well there you have it!  Thanks for reading!

Talk Soon Carol
