One of my favorite patterns, M6976, made the #1 spot for the Top Ten patterns of 2014. Thanks Gjeometry for sharing this with me! I first made it in January of last year. I skipped a muslin and my flat pattern adjustments included an FBA, sway back, and a slight shoulder adjustment. I was really proud of my FBA and my initial alterations were spot on. I now have three in my closet, and haven’t changed a thing. This is absolutely a tried and true pattern, a TNT (I’m Dynamite!)
McCalls 6796 is an easy make too, bonus. I like the length and the collar especially. I have another planned in purple but I am still looking for awesome buttons. Where do you guys buy buttons? My choices are greatly limited in Seattle.
