|McCall's 6886 in Nicole Miller Scuba Knit|
I love a classic silhouette in a nice print. McCall's 6886 is an easy pattern that allows you to showcase the fabric print. It's sew my style!
I love this pattern because it's simple with options: 3 necklines, 4 sleeves, and 4 lengths. The best thing is this simple silhouette can be customized many ways. I plan to try out many customizations. You can find out more about the pattern here.
This time I decided to keep it simple. I used a beautiful print with a solid black print. I choose this print because it gave me a chance to practice matching prints. I was so focused on matching prints that I neglected placement. I would have put the diamonds around my waist instead of hips. I done think my hips should be the focal point but that's how it turned out. Nonetheless, I love it!
I worked on fitting as well. The waist turned out well. I'm still working on bust fitting. There is still a slight gap in the bust area. I'll work on that the next time I make one. I'll check my Vogue Sewing Book for bust fitting tips.
Despite the bust issue, I love it! Practice makes perfect so I'll keep at it.
Until next time, Smooches!
