New patterns. I always browse the seasonal collections to see if anyone has come up with something new and interesting.
Honestly, I have so many patterns already, which I mix and mash with abandon, that I don’t really buy a lot of new ones.
But recent releases from McCalls got my attention, because they remind me of a couple things I’ve been keeping in my inspiration folder.
First up, and admittedly very trendy this year, paper bag waist pants. The pattern, M7726:
I’m leaning toward view D, the relaxed version, in a bottom weight fabric, and put together some nice colors:
Linen is another possibility, particularly for our warm seasons (three of them!), but it does have a much different vibe. I like the pink, and I think kiwi green would be awesome.
Second pattern, M7634. Is this the 70’s girl coming out in me? Here’s the line art, but think long hoodie.
Check out all the options in this pattern. I was amazed when I saw it. I’m planning to work with the long top, might add a zipper, and I’m not sure which pocket I’ll use.
So far all I have is the patterns, but I’m keeping an eye on fabric sales. Meanwhile, here’s a peek at my last animal print of the season. Almost done!
Bye for now! Coco
