McCall's 6204 - Silk Chiffon Caftan

12:00 AM

Project Details:

Pattern: McCall's 6204, View A

Pattern Sizing:
8-24W. I cut the 16.

Loose fitting, pullover tunics A, B have extended shoulders and stitched hems; tunic A has short sleeves on right side, left side drapes, angled hem, optional purchased jewel appliques, wrong side of fabric shows; tunic B has shirt tail hem, purchased jewel stones.

Did it look like the pattern envelope when you were done sewing it? I think it does.

Fabric: Silk Chiffon (100% silk) that has been in my stash for some time. I think it was purchased at Hancock Fabrics.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they were!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style. I've been seeing silk kaftans/tunics everywhere with pretty big price tags that make me glad I can sew!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? Not a lot. I added 2 inches to the hem. I wanted to make sure that it was still long enough when/if I belted it. Since I was sewing with lightweight fabric, I made French seams and of course narrow hems.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might. If I find another great silk chiffon print that I love... I just may. I do recommend this as a quick and easy project.
