McCalls Fall 2011 pattern picks!

McCalls' fall patterns are up on the site, and there are some I really like! I'm sure I'll be picking these up:

6402 - I especially like the softly pleated views.

6408 - I wore this shape cardigan a lot last winter. This would be perfect if only I can find some nice sweater knits or beefy interlock.

6391 - Is it wrong I love this shape skirt so much... even though it's for little girls? I can still buy it for ideas, right? And there may but a lucky little girl acquaintance in my life.

6393 - I like all the pieces of this for my boys. This will be first on my list to hunt down.

6410 - I really like the messenger bag/briefcase!

Anything cute I overlooked?
