McCalls 5768 - For this top/caftan in various lengths and sleeve variations, I like the zebra print version with the embellished details around the neck and sleeve edges. You can use leather or another type of fabric to make your decorative treatment. Simple yet classy.
McCalls 5756 - I really like this jacket. It's a simple design for everyday wear using knit fabrics and various trims.
McCalls 5718 - I thought this was a coat/jacket pattern I'd seen on someone's blog. It turns out that B5254 is what I thought I was buying, LOL! However, I decided that View C would be a nice choice for a fabric in my stash that I've had for a few years and is perfect for this time of year.
Joann's is having a Columbus Day sale this weekend. Simplicity, 99 cents and their entire stock of buttons, 50% off, among other things on sale!
I can get the Vogue Patterns I've had my eye on the 16th - 18th for $3.99. Have fun!
