I don't know if you have seen the (new?) McCall's patterns at their website - but something strange is going on. More than half of their recent patterns are posed with bikes. Hey, I love bikes and sewing! My favorite bike/sewing blog is Bicitoro's blog. I too wish to do more posing with bikes in my posts. I guess I need to step it up myself.
Here's a sampling of their recent pattern poses:
McCalls 6694: What in the world is this model doing? She has five inch pointy heels on and is carrying a track bike around on her shoulder? Or is the bike mounted to the wall? I'm not sure. Trendy (throw the bikes in!) but distracting pose.
McCalls 6712: Again, I do like the top below - I'm not sure about the pose? "I think I'll fix my bike with white pants on and five inch heels."
My only objection to the pose below is the male model's haircut.
I say we need more bike-sportswear related patterns - so maybe this is a step in the right direction - step it up McCalls!
BTW, McCalls is promoting an online sale this week 2.99 for all patterns.
