Hi everyone. It’s been a while. I hope you are keeping well and you doing more of those little or not so little things that make you happy during this pandemic. We are a second national lockdown here in the UK, I feel like we kind of know what to expect. I am well. Family is well and healthy.
Anyhow, I wanted to come on here to say hello. If I am not here, you can find me on instagram. As I had a bit of time on my hands, I have been tasting the waters of you tube. There is a new video today of this pretty skirt I’m wearing. I will show you how to pattern cut and sew it. Hope you check it out.
In today’s post i’m reviewing McCall’s Pattern 7726. I remember seeing some amazing pictures and posts from the sewing community on Instagram and thinking, wow I really like this pattern already. So I went on and bought it. I opted for the shorts ( view A ) for the start. There’s definitely going to be more garments from this pattern, and I think view D would be perfect for autumn or so. Anyways, let me stop dreaming ahead lol. Did I mention that I’m in love with these shorts, after all I made them ( wink ).
Pattern Sizing: I cut out size 14 and altered it to fit my body
Did it looklike thephoto/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing with it? Yes I believe it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I would say not so easy and that’s only because of the zip fly. I googled and stumbled upon a you tube tutorial by the amazing Brittany J Jones followed along, which was a huge help.
What did you particularly like about the pattern? The pleats at the waistline, think they quite flattering.
Fabric used? Ankara Wax Print
Would you sew it again? Yes definitely, might use different fabrics.
Wouldyou recommend it to others? Yes, most definitely.
