Sewing Patterns I heart

McCalls 5006 - Misses' Lined and Unlined Shrugs and Lined Capelets and Top. Shrugs A, B have sleeve variations and purchased trim: shrugs C, D have front darts, collar, button closure and sleeve variations; shrugs E, F have ties in one with front and sleeve variation: capelet G has collar and ribbon ties; capelet H has binding and ties; tops have front darts and spaghetti straps; tops A, B have purchased trim on front. View C of this pattern looks very similar to my favourite bolero from City Chic

New Look 6808 - easy top for wovens with 6 variations of necklines and sleeves. The bust darts and waistline darts (front and back) allow for a lot of fitting adjustments. Good for smart and casual tops

Kwik Sew 3530 - Romper and Jumper - for romping and jumping about the house

Kwik Sew 3433 - Gauchos pants and Sash - great loose fitting pants for casual wear

Simplicity 2478 - Bolero jackets - I like the short sleeve options

Simplicity 2223 - Misses' jackets in two lengths with trim variations sewing pattern. - I like the short length options.

Simplicity 2215 Cynthia Rowley Collection - Awesome dresses with pockets

Simplicity 2512 Cynthia Rowley Collection
Slim knee-length skirt with gathering at waistband., with pockets

Vogue 1247 - Very loose-fitting top. Semi-fitted A-lined skirt has front in-seam pockets.
I only like the skirt. The top doesn't really appeal to me. Although I may be able to draft a similar skirt.

Vogue 8284 - Fitted dress, lined bodice, back zipper closing with front flange. A, B, E, F: back slit opening. C, D: pleated lower section. Armhole and sleeve variations. A: sash with hook and eye closing.
It's a look a like of the galaxy dress the fashion world was going nuts over a few years ago.

Megan Nielsen Kelly Skirt - Incredibly flattering high waisted A-line skirt with fitted waistline. Features button front placket, wide waistband, large scoop pockets and pleating in the front and back.

McCalls 5523 - Straight skirt, mid-knee length, has side zipper and faced waistline; skirt A has shaped lower back flounce; skirt B has pleated lower back; skirt C has gathered lower back with self-fabric ruffle; skirt D has two lower back flounces. These would be great for work. It's now in my stash!

Vogue 8295 - Flared skirt, below mid-knee has lined yoke and side zipper closure. A, B, C: stitched hem. B, C: purchased trims. D, E, F: hem band. E, F: contrast and purchased trims. This skirt is very similar to McCalls 5591 and it doesn't have pockets so I don't want it anymore.

McCalls 5591 - Mid-knee length, pleated skirts have faced yoke and back zipper closure; skirt A has slash front pocket with band and contrasting lower band; skirts B and C have side seam pockets; skirt B has carriers and sash; skirt C has ribbon trim at lower edge. It's now in my stash!
