When I got home I had gotten a package from the McCall Pattern Company (again). It had three patterns from the new summer collections, one from Vogue Patterns and two from McCall’s.
The new Vogue Pattern I chose is the V1351. A cute knit dress with simple lines, designed my DKNY. I love the Vogue patterns from DKNY in general and this one looks so easy both to sew and to wear. It is lined and I have a chocking pink viscos knit to make it in.
From McCall’s I chose M6756, a pattern for shorts in varying lengths. I like these because they do not have the front pleat that many short patterns have and it ends on the waistline rather than on the hips.
The other McCall’s pattern is M6752, yet another pattern for a knit dress or top. But I like these because they are quite flowy in the design, but it still chinches in at the waist. I feel a bit repetitive when writing about the need to define the waist, but I hate feeling boxy and shapeless in my clothes.
