|Pattern Description: |
This is actually a mix of 2 patterns. McCalls 6928 for the front drape & New Look 6150 for the knit top.
McCalls 6928: XS (4-6) to XXL (24-26)
New Look 6150: 4-16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, for each component!
Were the instructions easy to follow? very.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
As soon as I saw this pattern I knew that drape would look brilliant on the plain boring white 3/4 sleeve t-shirt I was making
I am currently trying to fill a few gaps in my wardrobe & a white t-shirt for the coming winter I deemed essential, so decided that I would try New Look 6150 view D.
Part way through putting it together I got a little bored with it, so had put it aside to make something else (as we do!!)....
Then I spied McCalls 6928 in the catalog & just KNEW that drape would be brilliant to lift it up to something special.
The New Look top is an excellent basic style (& everyone has discovered what a great wrap top the other version is) and the chiffon drape is a nice addition.
I had a white poly lycra knit of some description in the stash, & some white chiffon.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
New Look 6150 was made to the pattern, apart from eliminating the CB seam.
The McCalls 6928 drape was made without the CF seam (I really don't know why this is needed to be honest) and I made it separate to the knit top as I had already finished the neck edge when inspiration struck. (The pattern has it attached as part of the neck binding at the CF). I then hand tacked it in place at the CF (the width of the centre band) & each corner. I had tacked it down at the hem too, but that didn't sit well so I took that stitching out.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This turned out even better than expected so I definitely would like to make the sleeveless top for summer (again without the CF seam).
Its probably not a style you can do too often though so that may have to do (unless daughter wants one, which is highly likely)
I would absolutely recommend giving this pattern a go, as well as New Look 6150.
The top itself is pretty basic, apart from bias bound neck & armhole edges.
I love this drape, it looks really nice on & the chiffon is so nice & floaty! I like how pretty it looks when wearing.
