New Simplicity / McCall Summer patterns & Past Due Butterick patterns

Although the Butterick Spring patterns made their debut a few weeks ago, I've been waiting for them to go on sale so I can pick them up from JoAnn's or Hancock. So they're currently on sale at Joann's and I plan to pick them up on tomorrow. Well I just found out that Simplicity and McCall's just released their early Summer patterns. Wow, this is getting crazy and I have so many patterns to pick up now. Gotta love those $.99 & $1.99 sales.

There are way too many patterns that I want but I'm just too lazy to post. I'll post them after I actually purchase them (I don't want to jinx myself---LOL). But here are just a few of the looks from each company that I'm really feeling!

Simplicity--- Early Summer
 (I don't even have to explain this one--it's so cute!  I feel like squealing with delight when I see this pattern!)

(I'm feeling brave enough to wear a jumpsuit so I'd like to take a stab at making this one. It looks so comfortable, especially in a knit!)

McCall's Early Summer patterns--- I'm not so crazy with new patterns but I was able to found a few I liked---here are two of those.
 (Love the crop dress with the leggings. Something tells me leggings will be a big part of my Summer!)

(I like the back on the far right top!)

Butterick Spring Patterns---once again I'm too not crazy with the new line but I was able to sift through and find some that I liked.
B 5450

(All 3 of these looks are perfect for me. I'm loving the short and long tunics. I can just imagine them in beautifully printed poplin fabrics!)

(I'm liking the brown jacket view--- a cute, short sleeved jacket, with neat pockets!)

These are just a few of the patterns I have on the radar. I'm still in the middle of planning my March/April Challenge wardrobe. Not to worry, I've already got started on the challenge and am currently working on a cute yellow top. By the week's end I'll have a better idea of the 8 or so items I want to sew and will post them.


  1. I just got Simplicity 2406 today & it wasnt on sale either, but I REALLY wanted it. I'm also looking for M6083 which is a jumpsuit, but no store in the city has it, not even on Theyre for my Vegas trip. So have fun pattern shopping.

  2. ooohhh, thanks for posting the mccall's patterns. I might not have even noticed them otherwise! I love the maxi dress!

  3. Thanks for sharing... nice line-up of patterns and after seeing your line-up will be picking up S2406, M6708, B5450 & B5469.

  4. The Cynthia Rowley dress is *amazing*! It looks so RTW. It's not really my style, but I may still have to wear it.

  5. I love that Cynthia Rowley dress... her patterns for Simplicity are always so nice! I'm glad someone else likes jumpsuits... I'm looking forward to making one as well (just found your blog and love it by the way!)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment and for following me on my 10,000 Hour Sewing Challenge:)
