Must-Sew Spring Patterns

I've officially got Spring Fever!  I received the Threads newsletter this morning (new McCalls patterns) and Spring Ottobre for kids yesterday and am full of ideas for must-sew patterns.  Here are a few on my list:

McCalls M6271 sz 2-8

M6272 sz 2-8
M6275 Big girls/plus sz 7-16.5
 I have mixed feelings about these...I like them but am not sure I could wear them:
M6280 sz 8-22
M6278 sz 4-20
 I think I need these:
Pieces for A/B, C, D cups! M6277 sz 8-22
M6290 sz4-18
And now the Ottobre must-sews...I honestly have not made anything from the mag (ever!) but I love the designs.  I need to get over worrying about conversions from metric, tracing & adding seam allowances, and just sew some!
Can you tell I loved this issue?!!  I'm not sure if I'll renew my subscription, though.  I'm not sure it's worth the hefty price since I haven't sewn any of them yet.  If I was comfortable sewing them, it would be well worth it.  I guess I need to try a few before my gift subscription expires in May.  Any other new designs you are dying to sew?
