If you’re thinking about what to sew for the winter-holiday season, take a look at our newest video. We’ve got suggestions, inspiration and pattern ideas for the five things we think you should sew now.
With Daylight Savings Time in effect and the temperature dipping (though it was 71 degrees in NYC today—what’s up with that?!), this is the time of year we think about making coats. Some of here at the McCall Pattern Company love to make our own coats, some of us would rather sew anything but a coat. Have you ever sewn a coat? Tell us in the comments section if you have or plan to.
We love a good sewing story and this one by Jenna Lyons, J. Crew creative director, really resonates. It’s about how a skirt she made in her 8th grade home ec class actually changed her life. Yeah, sewing can do that. Take a moment to read Jenna’s tribute to sewing and fabric.
Coming this Friday! We share our completed V1467 Pea Coats with you. Stay tuned!
