I got the bright idea to wash my doubleknit pants to see if they fit better.
The draft was right; the alterations, correctly done. So, maybe they were just stretched out from handling? I’d say they were.
I should flare out the boot cut a bit more in the next pair. You can see the shadow of the boot top. Maybe a retro-fitted lining would fix that, too. I’m probably not going to obsess over it, though almost all the problems with these pants would be more professionally fixed by a lining.
So, here’s the latest tunic: McCall’s 6607 I made view C
I love the rayon fabric I used from GorgeousFabrics.com.
I originally wrote that this was not quite the correct pattern for it. The fabric had a stiff hand and stood away from the body more than I expected. Edited: I realized that I had only washed a test swatch, not the whole yardage. After this photo shoot and blog report, I washed the new tunic and now is has it’s lovely rayon-y drape and works just fine in this style. Mystery solved!
Dave came home just in time to help me take a few photos. “Honey, you’ll tell me if something doesn’t look good, right?” No, I am NOT expecting a child in 2 months, K???
And of course the dog helped, too
This is an incredibly fast and simple pattern to sew up. It does need a super drapey, but not clingy, fabric, tho.
