2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

CIAO BELLA...

... if McCall's 6844 was not named 2014 pattern of the year - it certainly should have been.  I loved this pattern from the very first time I laid eyes on it.  I talked about ladies crowding me at the pattern cabinet while trying to get to it (here).  I was so serious about adding it to my collection that I was ready to fight for it if necessary.  So glad that I didn't have to fight for it; I would hate to get banned from Hancock Fabrics.  The pattern is so versatile offering four view ((but what would I know about all that versatility - I can't seem to move past View C.  The pattern has been well used - this  being my 5th - LOVE IT!!!)

Here it is being modeled by my friend Dawn - must say she styled it perfectly.
So if you have yet to try McCall's 6844 you might want to give it a whirl.  I am almost sure there are a few more of them lurking in my future...

  6. I've been putting McCall's patterns in my cart over at the Pattern Review $2.99 sale that ends today & I thought about this one but didn't do it. After reading your review (& many of the others on PR) I decided to get it! AND...I finished my Gingers!!! They're on my blog. :)

  8. This is a classic pattern that is for sure. Like you will be making more...already have some spring/summer fabric from my stash picked out. Look, I know I will be sewing this a lot so I went and bought another pattern so if my current pattern wore out I would have a back. Plus it was on sale at Hobby Lobby which I knew was meant to be!
