First Fall/Winter Outfit Completed!
When I saw the skirt fabric in Mood Fabrics I knew I had to have it and I knew exactly what would become of it! It sewed like a dream and it has so many other colors to bring out of it. While the dominate color is charcoal, I decide to pick up on the hot pink circles and make a beautiful silk top to go with it. Koonan at Mood assisted picking out the fabric! He is such a doll! Below are my pattern reviews:
Project Review Detailed
Pattern Description: Top is McCalls loose-fitting pullover tops with gathered front neckline and the skirt is by New Look and is a set of peplum style skirts. I altered the skirt pattern to just a simple pencil skirt with back slit and overlooked the inside with the same color as the blouse. Just to give it a peek-a-boo look on the inside. Besides why keep changing serger thread.. it really worked!
Pattern Used: McCalls 6650 and New Look 6003
Pattern Sizing: Cut a 10 for the top, 14 for the skirt
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done? Yes, just like it especially the top, once you made the neckline it was easy to make the sleeve cuffs and the waistband.. they are all created the same way.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were easy and clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing it constructed well
Fabric Used: Silk Crepe and 100% Boiled wool from Mood Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Had to alter the hip area
Would you sew it again? Yes the top and the skirt again, the top has so many variations it will never look like the same blouse!
