Count down to spring

It was strange year and the next one 2014 will not be easier – still seeing McCall’s patterns for spring make me smiling. Thinking of spring, sunny, warm, long days is what I need – these grey, short days are really nothing for me. So I started to count down to spring.

I browse through the new Early Spring McCall’s patterns collection I can say only one thing – SIPLICITY. There are not so many (maybe even not at all) new ideas.

M6883 Misses' Dresses and Slip

M6883 Misses’ Dresses and Slip – using nice fabric – e.g. lace – doesn’t require complicated cut. Made of light cotton or silk it would be perfect for first spring warm days.

M6884 Misses' Dresses

M6884 Misses’ Dresses – another wrap dress with interesting split in front. Simple and easy to make. Made of stretch velvet or nice viscose it would be very elegant.

M6890 Misses' Dresses

M6890 Misses’ Dresses – it is nice to see few patterns for real women. Very easy cut with great effect.

M6893 Misses' Dresses

M6893 Misses’ Dresses – this dress has few possibilities

M6901 Misses'/Women's Pants

M6901 Misses’/Women’s Pants – this simple trousers pattern by Palmer/Pletsch is the most interesting  pattern for me. However I think I will better draft new pattern by myself.

Let’s wait for the next spring/summer patterns from BMV.

And we should not forget to make at least one garment in a colour of the 2014 year – PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid

Pantone colour of the year 2014 Radian Orchid

  1. You are wise to think of next spring now. It usually takes me so long to make something. I start it this winter (still working on my pea coat) and end up wearing it next winter! I shall try to do better! 😄. I like the white lace dress, maybe in a beige – white and me don’t go together so well!

    1. I know what you mean… I have a coat waiting to be made. I have almost finished muslin to check the fit.
      I still have a lot of nbright fabrics to be turned into a dresses – perfect for sping/summer 🙂
      The white lace dress is nice – you may play with fabrics, colours – imagine black underdress and golden lace outer dress …
      Or play with sheer outer fabric with flower patterns and one nice colour under…. a lot of ideas 🙂

  2. I like the wrap dress (6884), but view D looks like it would be difficult to sit down in and still stay covered. Maybe with a pair of skinny brocade capri pants underneath for a modesty and a 60s look.
