Finding my sewing mojo again!

With Christmas over and returning to a bit of normalcy, I found myself ready to sew again.  I have almost completed the black and camel skirt. It just needs hemming.  Photos and more to follow.

Friday was my last working day until Next Year!!!  I began my "New Year" holiday on Friday, taking my final vacation hours for the year and celebrating New Year's Day.  Will be doing as much sewing as possible.
My next project is the McCall's 6844 knit cardigan/jacket.  I have two fabrics I planned to use to make this.  Once is an off white-oatmeal-color knit boucle from Fabric Mart and the other one is a sweater knit from EOS.

Based on reviews many reviewers indicate that the pattern runs large.  I find most McCall's patterns to run large on me in the shoulder and upper chest area.  I have cut around the pattern pieces and will pin fit later today.

Off to the sewing room now!

  1. The McCall's pattern is a easy sew. Check the shoulder length, it was too long for me.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I will probably have same issue with shoulder. I just finished cutting around the pattern pieces and pin fitted the sleeve, it was rather tight, so will have to add some width to that.

  3. Definitely agree on the long shoulder length and tight sleeves on M6844 (I'm on #4!) but it's a fun make!

    Yay for time off! Have fun sewing!

    1. I worked on the pattern this morning. I added width to the sleeves and did my usual adjustments-swayback, forward shoulder. I am ready to cut it out now.

  4. I also went with a medium and tthinking an fba is in order. The sleeves are ok. However went with the medium after PR reviews mentioned it runs big.
