Summer McCalls picks 2012....and what I'm loving

 I dont think I've ever posted about my favorites before, so you know I'm loving 
McCall's latest release!! I'm really digging the whole collection, but here are my picks:

 M6600: This shirtdress is one of my favorites, it's such a classic. The fabric choices can make a real difference, and the fabric on the model is gorgeous too! I also like how they are showing different design options, sort of like designers view. (ex: simplicity/project runway)  I can definitely see myself making this with some type of funky fabric, I'm influenced.






M6609: Another classic here, with so many design options! Color-block it, sheer side panels
change the sleeves the skirt length Endless possibilities here.





M6585: This can easily be a sleeper here, but this skirt is calling me! I love the fullness and the pockets.
It's so feminine and flirty and it has twirlability! (yep, I made that word)



M6602: This could pass for a Vogue pattern. The back on this dress is soo dramatic, it's definitely a head turner! (I would have to figure out how to raise it, tho) Could be a great dress for the holidays, especially in black or red. I also like the idea of the scalloped hem, hymm.....





M6604: I'm a sucker for the draped or cowl neck top anyway, but seeing it with the collar gives it a new spin to me. I haven't seen that anywhere myself yet, but I really like this! The other views aren't bad either btw.


M6608:  I have a weakness for Maxi's and the maxi skirt is no exception! There is twirlability in this skirt, view C is my fav!


M6610: I 'm always in search of a great jean pattern, I have a vogue pattern that's become my favorite so far, but maybe this could be my new t-n-t .Love seeing the color possibilities.


M6611: I love this jacket, and I really like the idea of extending the peplum. I wonder if this could be made in sweater knit. So classy.



M6605: I already have the fabric for this top, lol. I love the hemline!



M6612: Okay, I can't help it, I love maxi's! The cowl on view D, will be perfect to pair up with a jacket in cooler months, along with boots. I also kinda, like view A too. The gathered hemline is different, me likey!






Okay, I realize that was most of the collection, but what's your favorites?
Which one cant you wait to get your hands on?

Nice patterns. The skirt is identical to M5431. M6609 you see floating around the big four quite a bit. Really love the backless one with collar and the maxi fabulous. Something new. Some the companies just re release patterns and think you don't notice lol. They need Mimi G.
