I have been busier than the proverbial one-armed paper hanger recently, what with DS the elder’s impending graduation, traveling to the Haute Couture Club of Chicago’s fashion show, working about 70 hours a week, and just doing “stuff”. So I haven’t been sewing as much as I would like. I cast about trying to figure out what to make, and I decided on McCalls 6506. I made this pattern last year, and you can See the Original Review Here. I’ll highlight the differences in this review.
Lost them. Didn’t need them.
I got rid of the patch pockets and inserted side-seam pockets instead.
I added 4 belt loops at the waist. Of course, I don’t have any belts that go with it, but I’ll try to remedy that this week. I always wear the other version with a belt, so it was a natural addition.
Since I lost the instructions, I forgot the darts go on the outside. Oh well. Don’t miss that feature.
Press press press!
Dammit, just do it.
This went together quite readily, and I like the result. I’ll get a bunch of use from it this summer. Here are some shots on Shelley:
I’m not sure what I’m going to work on next. I haven’t been terribly inspired recently, but hey, who know’s what tomorrow may bring, right?
