Here at the McCall Pattern Company we’re so excited about the new Lisette patterns for Butterick. We’ve all been talking about which of designer Liesl Gibson’s patterns we want to sew first. Me, I have my eye on the moto jacket from B6169. A black floral Alexander Wang cotton I have in my stash is so perfect for it and I need to get it sewn up before spring arrives. (Which could be in July this year if you live on the East Coast, sigh.)
Want a closer look at the new Lisette patterns? You can see B6169—moto jacket and dress—in our latest video. The super-cute dress the model is wearing above with Liesl is featured in our next video, coming soon, which is all about fabric options for some of our spring patterns. Below, we show B6182 and B6183, and we’ve styled them with accessories for a casual-chic look. Take a look!
“All of these pieces are appropriate for work as well as casual wear, and they can even move into evening if you make them in the right fabrics. I like updated classics, not trendy pieces that will look out-of-date in six months. So these patterns are designed to look great for a long time, and I hope you’ll enjoy wearing them for a long time too.” —Lisette designer Liesl Gibson
Coming very soon: Details on our next sewalong! I’ll give you a big hint: It’s a lot less complicated to sew than the Ralph Rucci coat pattern we made in the fall. Yay!
