No one told me life was gonna be this way (clap, clap, clap, clap)!

McCall's has brought it all back. I am looking at the new fall release patterns and I feel like I am looking at the wardrobe from Friends, Season 1-3.

Point in case:

Is that not Rachel's one, two plaid shorts and tights combo or what? That beauty is McCall's 6403.

You may be asking, what is Stacie's problem here? No problem at all. I love fashions of the 90's and am happy to see them coming back. I lived through the 80's revival during which I frequently told my students, "Get your pants unrolled and out of your socks. It wasn't cute when I did it, and it's not cute when you do it. You'll thank me one day." I fully believe in about 15 years I will have cards and calls coming in from grateful former students that I did not let them get caught on camera looking how their kids are now dressing.

Back to McCall's, I also enjoy the Bongo style jeans of McCall's 6405. Not Audrina Patridge for Bongo, good old I have to go to J.C. Penny for some more Bongos when we are done smoking these cloves and before My So-Called Life comes on Bongos.

Even the kids are doing it these days!
This outfit (6389) brings back an awesome flannel shirt thrown over a T, AND includes the ever present hiking boots of the 90s. I am loving it!

I can't wait until flannel shirts come back. No really. I can't.

So there are a couple I really like and will make for the here and now without feeling too grunge yet.

McCalls 6407 is three cute jackets. I like the pink one with the scalloped sleeves and the one on the right without the scallops. Very cute light fall jacket for these non existent Texas winters.

I also especially like this pattern, 6402, and the gray skirt on the bottom right. Is it just me or could I make the one next to it, throw on a couple big safety pins, shorten it and totally go Britney circa Hit Me Baby One More Time?

Bringin' it back yo! I love the 90's!

I can't wait to see what the other guys release. There is a new Simplicity line out, but nothing grabbed me like this McCalls line. Odd, I'm usually totally into Simplicity. They had a cute Kate Middleton ISSA knock off though...

  1. Thanks for the flashback. I had a good laugh, but now I want to watch Friends for some odd reason.
