I don't know many people who didn`t try McCall's 6886. The simple fitted sheath was a huge hit. It was easy to make and looked really flattering. I loved it.
Well, today, I'm sharing how I reinvented one of my favorite patterns. I hate to admit it but I'm getting older. My body is changing. My style is also changing. I went from fired and sexy to cute and comfy overnight it seems. Anybody else feel like that?
I needed a cute dress for a trip. I pulled out McCall's 6886. I thought that's easy but I want something a little less fitted. Then, I thought well just make it bigger. I love the shape, but need a little more room. So, I cut the view F of the pattern 1 size too big. I added 3/4 length sleeves. It came out perfect.
I used a super soft knit from JoAnn Fabrics. Guess what, it's actually on clearance now! It's super comfy. I even received a few compliments. I felt really good wearing it.
Have you gone through a style change recently? Have you been able to use some patterns or pieces that reflect your old style and reinvent them to match your new style?
Until next time, Smooches!
