Cooler weather is upon us! My newest pattern with The McCall Pattern Company will keep you fashionable and comfy. Pattern M7512 is a tapered jacket with two unique collar options and sleeve lengths—ideal to wear during three seasons. The fabric I chose to use in both versions is ponte knit, a medium weight fabric that stitches like a woven, but drapes like a knit. Look for the pattern at your favorite retailer or at Nancy’s Notions.

Nancy Zieman's Giveaway Winner

The random winner of a copy of the book, Doll Costume Dress Up by Joan Hinds, compliments of F+W Media is Brenda. She said: I love making costumes! I made an ET costume for my son years ago and several children have worn it since then. My favorites are probably the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood that I made for my two oldest granddaughters. The Little Red Riding Hood costume was easy, but the wolf costume was very hard and it turned out great.
