Upcoming Projects

I purchased this McCall's pattern recently during one of their sales. The fabric is one that I have had for several years now. Acquired from Vogue Fabrics. I am not sure of the fabric content; it drapes well yet has some body, not like linen or silk dupioni. I have pulled this fabric each fall season and have not found the right pattern. I think this one will be the right one. I plan on making View A but may go with the cowl neckline. The pattern only calls for the bodice to be lined but I plan to line the skirt as well as the fabric is not that opaque.

This is another fabric I acquired from a shop in Tampa, FL that was going out of business in the late '90's. It is rather ravelly and I have a limited amount of the fabric. It goes well with the dress fabric mentioned above. It too is a fabric I pull every fall but have yet to make it up. I am planning on making a jacket from this Butterick pattern. I was going to make a Simplicity jacket, the one that is on the cover of the Sewing Stylish magazine for fall. I did not have enough of it however.


  1. I have that Butterick pattern out to use this fall too! It will be interesting to read about your adventures with it...I will be taking notes!

  2. I almost bought that McCall pattern & may go ahead next time. Look forward to your sewing it.

  3. I have that McCall pattern pulled out to work on also. I'm doing mine in a black wool crepe.
