Mccalls 6886 – Review

Pattern Description: close-fitting pullover dresses with neckline variations

Pattern Sizing: I sewed a size 14. 

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? from the shoulders down

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn’t use them

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? #1 Quick & Easy. #2 All the positive reviews and great results on PR made me feel like I was guaranteed to be successful with this one.

Fabric Used: Honestly I am not sure. I think a textured jersey with shimmer. 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I removed 2 inches from the back and front waist length. I used the pivot and slide method to add 4 inches at the hip. I added a turtleneck. I added two inches to each sleeve. I decided to do a raw finish on the edges.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. This is actually my 2nd time sewing 6886. I already have a second version cut out and a 3rd one planned.

    1. Thank you Dominique. This is a favorite style for me. It’s still too warm here for me to wear it now but when it cools off I will be ready.Over the past year my hair has become an accessory to me. When I’m thinking up my outfits and other accessories I am also planning the hairstyles.
