Torn Between Two Patterns

Happy New Year everyone! Nothing like starting off the new year with a little indecision. I can't make up my mind between these two patterns. The one on top I'd make into a little off-white spring coat, with a silk charmeuse lining in a Pucci-esque print. The bottom pattern, I'd make the jacket into an ivory boucle Chanel knock-off. Your thoughts?


  1. I like them both,especially the Pucci print lining.

    I would like to see the ivory Chanel, only because you can wear it sooner than the off white spring coat. My vintage dress cannot be worn until June, so I am of the mindset that wearing something a little sooner, would be fun.

    By no means, should my rationale be yours!

    Choose whatever you feel would be the best addition to your wardrobe!

  2. I love both choices. I agree with you about the CC knock-off in pattern #2, I just love the neckline of pattern #1.

    I joined this sew along also. How Do I get on so I can post too???

  3. I love the McCalls, and think it would look awesome in off-white with a Pucci print lining. And you could make the dress to match!

  4. I love both ideas. They are unique and I could see you wearing eith one...would you ever think about making both??

    I haven't decide on my pattern and I am sure it will change after I post!

    happy new year.

  5. I like the first pattern.
