New Spring Patterns from McCall's!

7:39 AM

So the new McCall's Patterns are up.  Let's go ahead and start with my favorite:  M7366 - Jumpsuit.  I love that this one is instantly an evening look.  I've mentioned before that sometimes, I just don't want to wear a skirt or a dress and a jumpsuit fits the bill.  
It also comes in a romper style as well that would look great in a polished dressy fabric worn with heels or a casual fabric paired with a flat sandal.
And there is also a more "bra-friendly" version.

While I was recently purging my closet, I found that I have a need for tops for spring.  I love silk blouses that I can throw on with jeans and shorts.  So here are my picks to start filling that wardrobe gap:
I love the details of M7357 with the sleeve slits.
I'm a fan of sleeve tabs and shirt tails.  So M7360 is a winner also.  And I most definitely plan to make the full sleeve so I can still wear this blouse come fall.

And I love the flowy, kimono-style of M7362.


What do you like?

  1. I never find the releases inspiring and am glad people like you blog them. I am really digging that last top / tunic. I've had a tunic traced from Burda and made my alterations to the pattern. But, just never got around to sewing it up.

    1. I'm the same way. Sometimes I'm not moved by a pattern until someone else points it out.

  4. I really like the jumpsuit. I just finished up Mccalls 7203 ( your make of this pattern was one of the few that I could find online and I loved it!) and now I want to make all the jumpsuits!

    1. I see them in stores too from Vince and Joie. I love that I can make my own instead of spending a couple of hundred bucks on a silk blouse.

  7. If I were to make a jumpsuit, I would definitely make the bra friendly version since I am very busty. Love M7357 - the style lines provides many opportunities for fit and seems like a silhouette that is flattering for many figures. I look forward to your creations!

    2. Cup sizing??!! Hurray!! I will definitely be getting this pattern. Thank you so very much for bringing it to my (our) attention!

  8. These tops seem more interesting that others I've seen in prior McCalls selections. Of the three you've posted about, I like the M7357. I can see myself making that with some lightweight cotton lawn cloth in some sort of quasi-tropical print

  9. Nice pattern inspirations. I do like the M7357 one the best. Even more so as you indicated in a comment that it has bust sizing-now what's not to like.
