I'm pleased to see puffy sleeves - much easier for those of us with muscular arms.

Not much for me there though.

Here's the new stuff!

Not many new patterns, but the ones that are there are really cute (if you're not bow-allergic!)

The denim skirts in 5429 are a nice look. 3 styles for all different ages. These gored (tulip) skirts seem to be a style that will be around for a while since it's been reinvented for a few seasons now.

We've gone from belly shirts to tunics!
For my money, this is a Great shirt.

I agree, Marji. Gotta have that shirt -- looks like it would fit most bodies. I like the circle skirt, too -- that may be because I haven't had one since I was 10"!! :D

A lot of these patterns look like they're geared towards beginners, which is great for those folks.

I like this skirt: gored skirt with godets

and this one full skirt

and this one: wrap skirt

this is a nice knit wardrobe pattern: knit wardrobe

A nice, feminine blouse (for those of us who like puffed sleeves) blouse

I like this one, but not the contrast version in the photo tunic/dress

This wouldn't look so good on my figure, but it would be cute for many women: dress

every so often somebody is looking for a nice western shirt pattern, and here is one western style shirt

I agree there are a lot of designs that a beginner/advanced beginner could tackle--that's a good thing! Also a good thing for those of us with limited time to sew.

I like these McCalls patterns better than any other pattern company's summer line this year. And I generally do not buy McCalls patterns . . . so when is the next McCall's sale????

I like the Palmer/Pletsch white shirt also as well as the denim skirt group. Great basics in a time when a lot of pattern companies have been seriously trend chasing.

I must admit that I'm quite disappointed by this collection. I had been looking for a shirt like this western style shirt last year, and already settled morphing another one. Everything else is too tent-like.

I was surprised by these organizer items. The picture makes it look like it is just an apron, so I almost passed it up until I read the title. Not that I have anything against aprons... I just don't actually cook!

I'm intrigued by the princess/shoulder line on 5426, and several of the wardrobe and/or P/P patterns look really useful.
