I say it with love I promise. I have some perfectly wonderful McCall’s patterns it’s just sometimes they take their brand position of being the younger, funkier of the BMV (Butterick/McCall’s/Vogue) collective a little too seriously.
The collection released today, however, has lowered the wtf value considerably. Here are the ones on my wishlist for the next sale.
M6519: I would make and wear all of these drapey separates. I love it as a wardrobe collection.
M6505: I love the lace overly and the V at the back.
M6503: Nice and simple and would work in lots of different fabrics.
M6511: Interesting piecing and for once I really like the fabrics they’ve used.
M6504: Simple but with a lovely drape to the skirt.
M6517: Finally a decent raincoat pattern, perfect for laminated cottons.
