Hello BEAUTIES! Happy Thursday! & Happy First day of FALL! YAY! This is my FIRST ever bomber jacket and I might be in love. I’ll be honest I wasn’t drawn to the pattern at first glance (crazy right?) but after reading a few posts about the sew-along on the McCall’s blog AND being gifted this gorgeous floral print fabric from my mother I had to jump on board! This is my first sew-along to participate in and I’ve really enjoyed it. McCall’s made a Facebook group especially for the bomber sew-along and it’s been great seeing other bomber styles made up, everyone in the group is so creative and kind! I encourage you to jump in if you’ve been considering! The bomber is a really fun make and has endless style options, theres something here for everyone! I’ve included a few pictures from Instagram, my pattern review & of course some try on shots below! Also check out my Bomber Jacket board on Pinterest, these looks would be awesome for FALL! Have a GREAT rest of the week! XO – Rosy

Pattern Description: Misses’ Bomber Jackets – McCall’s 7100
Pattern Sizing: Xsm – Med, I cut size Xsm.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes I thought they were.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the bomber jacket pattern, wish there were instructions included on how to line it. I did my best attempt at a lining but can’t wait for the sew-along blog post on “adding a lining to a bomber jacket” – week of 10/10! 🙂
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes definitely want to try the other views and different fabric options. I think there are endless possibilities for this type of bomber pattern in terms of style, fit and fabrics. I would recommend.
Conclusion: I really love this pattern. It was fun to make and I can see more of these in my closet. If you want a looser fitting bomber I would definitely go a size up. My next make from this will be a less fitted version.
