Here is my review for McCall's 6408.
Here is the limited description from the back of the envelope:
Very loose fitting jackets have stitched or serged seam and hem
|SUGGESTED FABRICS: For Moderate Stretch Knits: Jersey, Cotton Knits.|
I made view D.
I used a lace knit fabric I purchased from Fabric Mart. This was one of their crazy priced fabrics and cost just a few dollars a yard. This is truly one of the least inexpensive garments I have made in quite a while!
Yes, my finished garment resembles the envelope.
Directions are simple to use, although wordy with all the tips included. I stabilized the shoulder seams with 1/4" elastic.
I used my cover stitch machine to hem the sleeves and lower hem. I haven't had it long and it is fun and fast to use!
The only modification I made was to add 8" of clear elastic to the back waistline in order to rein it in a bit. I guess I shouldn't say only, I made my usual 1/2" sway back adjustment as well.
All in all, this is a super easy, instant gratification project. I'd like to make view C at some point. I am not thrilled with the belted view.
Try this pattern if you want a fast, easy, and fun project that lends itself to a variety of fabrics.
thanks for reading!
