First up, the dresses:
|M6924 - A Phoebe Couture design.|
The dress is fine, but feels sort of basic.
|I do like that the opening on the back is high enough to cover a regular bra.|
|M6920 - Basic sheath dress.|
This pattern does come in McCall's plus sizes as well.
|M6922 - A nice halter dress. Pretty, but basic.|
|M6923 - Does anyone else feel like it is the attack of the 90s?|
The grunge vibe is trying to come back.
I wish it wouldn't.
|M6926 - I feel like something is off about the proportions of this boxy top...|
Perhaps the neck is too high?
|...though the version with the ribbon at the hem is a bit more pleasing to my eye.|
|M6925 - I feel like this top wants to be a dress, but doesn't quite make it.|
I don't know... the bottom just feels a bit too full to me.
|M6928 - This tank top has a rather interesting fabric detail.|
Not in love with the other versions that come in the envelope though.
|M6927 - Very basic t-shirt pattern.|
|M6928 - This top pattern seems a bit overwhelming. |
Sort of like she is being eaten by the fabric.
And the other styles with this pattern are even more voluminous!
|M6932 - A Palmer/Pletsch pattern.|
Not a fan of unisex tops - they end up looking good on no one.
|M6931 - An Easy McCall's pattern.|
Maxi skirt with elastic waist and slit. Could probably draft this myself...
|M6930 - Shorts in several lengths.|
Actually I think they are pretty cute!
Not sure how I feel about the zipper being in the back though...
|M6933 - A "Learn to Sew for Fun" pattern.|
Ummm... I get that these are supposed to be easy to sew,
but nobody wants to wear cargo shorts that look like baggy diapers.
|M6940 - McCall's jumps into the Game of Thrones knock-off costume patterns.|
|Just in case you didn't get it, they really wanted to make sure you realized that it was Cersei.|
|M6941 - They also have a Daenerys pattern if you are more into dragons than lions.|
(And, I mean, who isn't more into dragons than lions?)
|M6938 - A Linda Carr doll's pattern. The ice skating dress is cute!|
It also includes tennis, swimming, and skiing costumes as well.
Perfect for kids who got obsessed with watching the Olympics.
|M6937 - Chicken pin cushions and seam ripper holders!|
And that's that. So tell me - am I missing something? Should I be more excited? Or do all of these patterns seem rather generic? I mean, I am going to be adding the Game of Thrones patterns to the stash, but other than that? Not too much I am excited about. Feel free to disagree with me in the comments!
