Multiple sizes are included in the book. I used size Small.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, though I think the binding technique I used is not in the book.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the basic shape of the pattern and how versatile it is.
The same as the McCall's 6708 cardigan I just reviewed: A soft, warm, lightweight Merino knit that PR member Treefrog sent to me in 2012 after I traced off and mailed to her a pattern that was out of print at the time. The fabric was a great surprise and this jersey is seriously yummy to wear! I made it to mainly wear to work, but could also go hiking in this high-performance fabric. I'm pretty sure Treefrog said it was fabric used by the RTW company Icebreaker.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The top edges are bound with 2 self-fabric strips; the front strip becomes the shoulder straps. For the bound portions, the strips were cut 2-inches wide by 90% of the cami raw edge length plus the strap lengths. I use the technique frequently and use longer binding strips for knits with less stretch.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I'll likely sew more of these camis.
Great basic pattern. Thanks for this fabric Treefrog!
