If the Women of Younger Were Home Sewers

Who’s excited for the new season of Younger?!?! Did you know that the costume designer for Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada, Patricia Field, is also a costume consultant for Younger? Well, in honor of the new season and the spectacular fashion, I’m going to pretend each character is a home sewer and figure out what patterns they’d sew!

New Coloring Book: Vogue Patterns Fall Collection. Plus, Discussion Topic

Vogue Patterns Fall '15 Coloring Book PDF

In case you missed it, we released the Vogue Patterns Fall 2015 collection last week. We’ve been reading your comments about it (love that you have so much to say!), and your early favorites appear to be the pea coat, the mustard-colored vintage dress, and the “art-teacher chic” separates. Me, I’ve got my eye on the new DKNY shirt pattern.

To help you plan your fall sewing, we’ve put together another one of our “coloring books.” This downloadable PDF features high-resolution line art of 10 of the most talked-about new patterns from the Vogue fall collection, which you can color with your fabric ideas and styling details. Just enter your email address below to download our Vogue Patterns Fall ’15 coloring booklet. You’ll receive a confirmation message on the page and the link to download the PDF will appear just below it. Enjoy!

Are you a planner-sewer or more of an impulsive type? On the McCall Pattern Company blog.Discussion topic: What’s your sewing profile? With a new season approaching, we’re starting to think about things we want to sew when it gets a little colder. Are you a planner sewer who makes a list of all the things you need for your wardrobe, and then sticks to that list? Or are you an impulse sewer, preferring to be guided by whatever pattern or piece of fabric that catches your eye.

For most of my sewing life I’ve been in the first camp, making a list and checking it twice. But lately I’ve been more of a “ooh, pretty pattern!” sewer, just making whatever strikes my fancy. It feels almost liberating to not sew with a plan, being the compulsive list-maker that I am.

But enough about me! What kind of sewer are you? Planner? Impulse sewer? Something in between? Leave a comment here! And feel free to tell us what you think of this new collection for Vogue Patterns. We appreciate your feedback.
