I hope everyone is having a FABULOUS start to the new year! Here's my first project!

Pants are Vogue 1059

Project Details:

Pattern: McCall's 6164 - View A

Pattern Sizing: XSM - XLG (I cut the LG, but could have cut the MED)

Description: Pullover tops A, B, C, D, E, F have neckline and sleeve variations, stitched hems; top A has two-piece sleeves with bands and elastic forming ruched effect; tops A, B have above elbow sleeves; tops A, B, C have gathered sleeve caps; tops C, D have pleated and gathered sleeve caps; top D has crushed, longer than full-length sleeves; tops A, B, C, D have optional sleeve heads; tops C, E have below elbow sleeves; top E has flanges and purchased sew-on jewels; top F has ruffles and long sleeves.

Did it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? For the most part, it does.

Fabric: A sweater knit I've been stashing for a couple of years.  Not sure of the fabric content, but I think it would do fairly well in a washing machine.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were exceptionally easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I think this is a really cute and "of-the-moment" style that I've been seeing everywhere... from the high-end designers to the junior retailers and everything in between.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I added 1" to the length.

Conclusion: This is a great "trendy" pattern. All of the versions seem as if they could be sewn up in a couple of hours. I'm not going to sew this one again -- it's really trendy. But I do recommend it.
