McCall's Patterns: The NY Collection - A Quick Survey
So this is my collection of McCall's Patterns -The NY Collection. I still love them (can I say that enough?). I wanna make every last one of them and have ideas for all of them! I'm still trying to figure out how to adjust the single size patterns to fit.
WHAT ABOUT YOU:
Quick story: When I was working for the Federal Government in the 90's a co-worker made M6735 pictured above. She made the jumpsuit and the white top. OH EM GEE (G for Goodness!!!). From a distance it was toooo cute. The fit was good the color and fabric combination great. She used some type of wool crepe for the jumpsuit and a white cotton for the shirt. Up close on the other hand? YIKES! The garment was UNFINISHED. Did you hear me? U N F I N I S H E D ! The jumpsuit that is. Who really knows about the blouse? It was tucked in. She wore it UNFINISHED - OBVIOUSLY UNFINISHED. Have you ever? I remember her saying to me right away that she didn't get a chance to finish the garment but that she would complete it sometime over the weekend. HUH? Loose thread EVERYWHERE, not yet hemmed, something crazy with the pockets that I can't quite recall. It was awful. I vowed that when I made this pattern that it would be.....at least......FINISHED! Can you imagine?
Okay, gotta go. As always.......BE BLESSED!
