Summer 2018 Pattern Haul Part 2

Here is Part 2 of my Summer 2018 Pattern Haul. My goal is make at least 2 per month. Lately I have been sewing a lot and I am really enjoying my time in my space.

McCall’s 7778 Misses’ Dresses, Romper and Jumpsuit

View D, once again it’s another Jumpsuit. I am so in love with them right now. I am going for the longer version. This version can be dressed up or down. I don’t have a color of fabric in mind for this one, but if I could find this golden canary yellow, that would be fabulous. The suggested fabrics for this pattern are  Linen, Cotton Blends, Challis, and Stable Knits.

The multiple variations of backs on this pattern is what caught my eye.  If I had to pick a favorite View B would get my vote. I just ordered and received a black and white polka dot fabric from Fabric.com. It is a Stretch ITY Jersey Knit Dot Black and white, on sale for $5.68 per yard. It has an amazing feel to it. The suggested fabrics for this pattern are Moderate Stretch Knits (35% Cross Grain):  Ribbed Knit, Cotton Knits, Jerseys, and Interlock.

View B would be my choice for this one. It has a fun summer vibe to it, that can be dressed up for any special occasion event. Although this is not a super fancy dress, it will be my Segway into maybe formal wear. Let’s hope I can master this, as I want to improve on my skills to start making more pieces that are strictly out of my comfort zone. The suggested fabric choices for this pattern are Crepes, Crepe De Chine, Stable Knits, Cotton Blends.

These patterns and the Patterns from my Summer 2018 Pattern Haul Part 1 post will definitely keep me busy this summer. We have already reach the 100 degree mark for weather here in California and there are more to come, so I will be in my sewing studio with the Air Conditioner running, working away at my creations. Happy Sewing Everyone.
