Fabricland has a sale on right now, and I'm taking the afternoon off tomorrow to go pattern shopping. Huzzah 2/$7 McCall's! I'm hoping to track down some dress patterns for this coming summer, and a found a few possible gems. These are the ones I'm looking at:
McCall's 4769 Shirt Dress
I've mentioned about this one before, and I'm still drawn to it. I want a nice, basic shirt dress pattern with a wider skirt, and I think this fulfills those requirements. From what the reviews on PR say, it's a difficult pattern, but might be a nice challenge after I get back into sewing. I like challenges!
I'm really loving the blue version with the sleeves. It has a narrower skirt than I'd prefer, and maybe I'd want to look into widening it from straight to A-line, but I'd have to see. The only reviews for it are for the sleeveless version, and I particularly like this woman's review, but sleeveless tops on me is just...no. No go.
This knit dress looks super cute and comfortable, and looks pretty easy to put together. Might be a chance to use some of the lessons in knit I learned here. Ooo, I'd love to make this in a deep purple or teal, or some funky print fabric!
Okay, so I doubt this would do much for my hips, but I love the green version of this, with the sleeves. The wide neckline, 3/4 length sleeves, and self-belt looks really flattering, no? I'd love it in a breezy brown cotton or linen, something cool and comfy for summer. There's no reviews for it yet on PR (of course), but I think I'll get it anyways.
I'm so looking forward to this break tomorrow, I can't tell you guys how much. All I need to do is resist buying fabric.
Don't worry, I wouldn't bet on that either.
