Underwhelmed, McCalls

Mc 6352

The summer patterns are out and I am very underwhelmed, McCalls.

Looking at their offerings feels like internet shopping for my 18-year-old daughter. Yes, there are some dresses she would rock, and that are beautiful, like the one above, but my market segment is almost completely ignored.

The only pattern that I might consider buying is the new Palmer Pletsch fitted pant, Mc 6361, but I won't be rushing to buy a fitted pant pattern in the near future, even at a steep discount.

Where are some cute jackets, McCalls, or some nice tops that would work for the older woman with some fluff?

Thank goodness I have lots of Vogues to play with. :)

I haven't sewn all week. Lots of work and some unpleasant family drama. (Is family drama ever pleasant? :) ) But I hope to get something accomplished this weekend.

Happy Sewing! :)
