McCall’s must be able to read minds. They know that some of us can actually imagine sewing for warmer weather after the winter doldrums and that for some of us, spring peepers and crocuses give hope that we’ll be able to bare our arms soon. Ahhh, warmth!
And here it is…the new McCall’s pattern collection. We’ve selected a few standouts that we know you’re going to want to try. And for more inspiration to sew these beauties, Sawyer Brook Fabrics has selected some great fabrics that we’re featuring here.
