I was looking for a yardage chart and noticed new McCall's patterns online. Thought I'd spread the word. Unless it's old news...in which case, uh. You didn't see this.

New McCall's over here.

I think they are new offerings. I don't think I have seen so many bikes ... and only one helmet...

Whoa! Bike overkill! It's like someone told them bikes were cool now so they put them EVERYWHERE, with evening gowns!

Wow, that's a lot of bikes. And a lot of kids' clothes. I like the top, skirt and pants of 6711, otherwise I am meh about this collection.

Yikes. The bikes are a little distracting.

I like is the short-sleeved version of 6713 and the dress & skirt of 6711.

6709 reminds me of Simplicity 2149, New Look 6151, and Butterick 5334 (oop).

Piece by Piece indeed: 6712

The only one I like is 6697. However, "if" I got the pattern, I would try to make it so the diagonal stripes go continuously around the body, instead of Vee-ing at the sides.

There's absolutely nothing new about M6696 (in fact, I already own a similar dress pattern) but the fact it's in cup sizes and the cute little cuffs on the 3/4 sleeved version appeal to me.

One woman. One sewing machine. One giant stack of fabric. What could possibly go wrong?

Of the collection, which is 'wheely wheely' early for spring (get it??)
I like two that are nicely trendy:

Lace inset top:



And the Tux stripe pant, which is all over the interweb fashionistas:
