Mccall just released their 77 (according to their website) new patterns for fall.  To be honest, I didn't find most of them anything to get too excited about, but much of that's because they're not focused on my figure this season.  That's ok, I've got waaaaaay too many patterns to ever use already!  But I wouldn't mind it if someone else, perferably an hourglass shaped shorter person, made 4594 just to show me how it looks.  I LOVE the tango look of that skirt.  And skirt4595 (specifically the grey buckled one) is so beautifully modern, I might have to try it out.  What's YOUR fave?

Yay!!! Thanks Kit!!!
First thing- the mannequins they used to model the toddler garments are REALLY creepy.  You'd think it'd be easy to find a cute toddler to model....
love love love thismod kids' dress.  DD is getting that one someday.
And look at these super-trendy satin cargoes for girls.  A couple seasons late but oh well.

Nikki I am wondering who on earth would go to all that trouble for a cape??  
My pick for DD:
mccall 4582
The black one is something I'd have loved to wear to a Stevie Nicks concert back in the day.  No offense, but now I have to laugh cause if you put a cone hat on her head she'd have a nice witch outfit!  
mccall 4592
This one is actually not too bad, the jacket anyway.  Reminds me of another independant that's been reviewed here but I can't think of it.

My favorite thing to sew is for my son, and there weren't any new patterns for a toddler boy size 2!  :cry:

For myself, I like 4588

Mary, that 4696 "Endless options" looks like a pattern with a lot of scope. Good value.

But that cape is creepy. :eek:

To be honest, there isn't much to get excited about in this new collection. And the presentation is poor - white dolls instead of live children as models, and some of the women's outfits on stands with a pair of shoes in front!! Looks like money-saving. Cutting back on design input, too.

I think the creepy cape is supposed to represent the fabric from a coffin lining.

My hope is to sew to the very end. They'll find my head slumped over my precious Kenmore 19606 and have to pry the seam ripper from my cold, dead hands.

LOL!  :D  :D

I kinda like this jacket: 4599.

The January issue of Burda mag had a lot of pairings of suede with satin, including satin cargos. Does the year lag between Burda and US fashion mean they'll stick around thru next winter?

mmmmm woooool

Nikki,
I agree with you I kind of like 4599 also.

4600 I the wrap top with the bell shaped sleeves.

4603 may be an option for a chanel jacket.

4585 View D is very much in the style of Yves Saint Laurent's "Mondrian Dress".  I saw that at the Met Costume Institute.  It would be fun to make it in different colored wool crepe!
