McCall's Summer 2013

McCall's summer collection for 2013 has just been released.  I am not abundantly impressed, though this dress (in view D, the long, sleeveless on) is kind of cute.

McCall's 6770 gives me a bit of pause.  I suppose one would describe this as steampunk or neo-Victorian?  Or perhaps even colonial?  Don't get me wrong, I really love that jacket and the skirt (though the fabric appalls me), and I appreciate that they showed a more modern take on some of the items.  I guess it's really the terrible "I just rolled out of bed" hair that is distracting me.

  1. There hair really IS distracting-- what were they thinking? =S

    I love the pattern though, it's quite lovely. It's really giving me the urge to try out some commercial patterns.

  2. I love 6770, and I really like how they showed the bustle with the pantaloons! The hair's funny - I remember British Vogue in the 70's used to have that sort of hair on their models all the time. Guess it's coming back in style! :D

    1. I'm really surprised how good the bustle looks with the pantaloons. Better than with the skirt, I think.
