Pattern Review McCalls 6319, View C

Sku #CL4110  

Peachy Pink Knit


96% Cotton  4% Lycra


Prewash: I washed this in a laundry bag, cold water using the perma press cycle and the perma press cycle to dry.  The fabric shrunk 2″ in length and none in width. 

Notions: Stretch Needle size 11, Gutermann thread #350, Tricot Lining, 1/4″ elastic

Alterations: I repeated the same FBA adjustment used on the Vogue 1205 dress

Construction Details: I only made one change to the pattern instructions.  Instead of lining the bodice, I lined the skirt. Because this knit is cotton, I didn’t want it to bunch or cling.

  Conclusion: This pattern is quick and easy but has a lot of style. It could work for a formal occasion in the right fabric. The cream/mocha animal print knit  would look great in this, too.
