McCall's 7688 - French Terry

McCall's 7688 - French terry from La Finch Fabrics

I need some ruffles for winter and this pattern seemed just what I needed.

Just a sweatshirt for winter, using McCall's 7688 in view D but not the tunic/dress length, just the sweatshirt length.  My fabric is the softest french terry from LA Finch Fabric - Dusty Pink French Terry

I went with a medium, which is nice for the sweatshirt look but if you want a closer fit, go down a size.

I don't know if you can tell, but on the ruffle, I did not hem it.

Here is the ruffle and the sleeve band.  I would change the neckline for future makes - I feel it is too long and my neckline doesn't sit nicely.

This was a quick and easy project but with a fun twist and a bit trendy.

Now that the busy Christmas season is over, I am working on some more time intensive projects.  I have the time to sew now so it is fun to work on these harder projects.  Now when I don't have much time to sew, I just want to do any quick project.

  1. I thought I'd commented on this last week, Lori, but my comment didn't publish! It was along the lines of "beautiful, cosy sweatshirt, lovely colour", but also I LOVE that your opening line for this post was "I need some ruffles for winter"! :-)
