“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.“
Here are the Facts:
Fabric: Linen (black and hand printed) Cloth House
Pattern: McCall’s 6028
Notions: 24 Inc zipper and matching thread
Time to complete: 7 hours
First worn: 2011
Wear again? Yes with further modifications
Total Cost: £40
Pattern alterations or any design changes: Bust alteration and added 3 Inc in body length. I followed their recommendation on the sizes but now its ready I feel its too loose and I should take in more– I will add a belt for the moment ( I will be making one with the left over panel fabric)
Conclusion: I felt in love when I saw this pattern on the internet, as it not always you like the photo in front. This is a timeless shape (Sheath) so I thought the price was a good investment and the 4 variations were cute. I to choose to start with B (with the contrast panel) and used linen as its very breathable fabric, great to keep me cool in the summer. The disadvantage of using linen as it doesn’t shape very well. I don’t normally follow the pattern instruction and worked fine for this pattern, the only time I really had to refer to it was when I needed to sew the facing and the instructions were clear. So I would recommend and say it’s a good pattern.
