Pattern Review - McCalls 6604

McCalls 6604 Top View A with McCalls 3830 Skirt
Pattern Description: 
Pull over top with different varations.  I cut/sewed view A

Pattern Sizing:
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's more noticeable when you bend over.

Fabric Used:
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


  1. Hi Zeva - congrats for finishing your October Challenge garment - it looks gorgeous - I think it would suit you very nicely :)

  2. Isn't 3830 the best pencil skirt ever?

    I like the top and the print! I think it looks really good on you and works perfectly with your skirt.

  3. The color of this top is just perfect for you.

  4. Very nice top, red looks so nice on you.
