Member Picks of the New McCall's with Fabric from Emma One Sock By DianeSev on 7/1/13 3:22 PM

We sewists always find ourselves looking ahead to another season.  When it's fall, we're sewing for winter.  When it's winter, we're sewing for spring. When it's spring, we're sewing for summer.  When it's summer, we're sewing for...you guessed it...fall.

Sewing for winter is always hard emotionally when we're in the summer season.  But chilly air-conditioning can put us in the mood we need to be in to brace ourselves for fall sewing.

And looking at and buying fall patterns...that's something we can do no matter what the weather!

McCall's has come out with their new fall collection, a perfect time for us to look and buy in our summer relaxation mode. PatternReview members have been talking about this collection. We're featuring some of their choices here. And Emma One Sock has provided us with dream fabrics to match up with these patterns.

marec says of this top, "This makes me super happy as it provides some coverage and adds interest to a basic tee."  MrsCharisma says, "6796 is a must have. I love that shape." lakaribane agrees, "That patterns lines are so clean you can use the LOUDEST prints ever or, conversely, the most neutral of neutrals and come out with a winner, IMO."

I like the collar on the first sweater/t-shirt, and the green wool sweater knit. Some of those prints, tho, make my eyes hurt.

I love having the fabric suggestions. Often what keeps me from sewing is not knowing how to pair up the patterns with available fabric, especially since you cant feel the online options. This is a great service.
