|McCalls 6604 Top View A with McCalls 3830 Skirt|
Pull over top with different varations. I cut/sewed view A
I cut a size 18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I do not know, I misplaced the directions and had to pretty much wing it on my own. Was not sure how the neck facing should have been finished. I was concerned about it stretching out. so I basted it and finished it with a zig-zag stitch (I do not have a serger yet). Funny, the directions "showed up" when I was finished with it.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes. It was very easy to sew. And unlike other reviewers I did not have a problem with the drape in the front being too low (even though it looks low in the dress form).
Edited to add: I wore the top to work today, and yes the front drape is a little low...it's more noticeable when you bend over.
Light weight poly printed fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I used the sleeves from view C
Would you sew it again?
Yes. Probably view A again but with the sleeves from view D.
Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. It seems like there were mixed reviews on this top. Mostly just personal preferences. I say give it a try, it's an easy top to sew.
Another great wardrobe piece for me! Top is shown with McCalls 3830
