I made up McCall 3606, which is a straight skirt with an option of sewing the skirt with belt loops or without. I choose to forego the belt loops on this version. I also sewed up this pattern without instructions. Thank you 1940 McCall for your awesome printed patterns!
I made the skirt out of lovely green wool that I bought a couple of christmases ago. Sewing it up was fairly easy but I did have to grade it up about 4 inches, which was easy to do although I did have to cut out the waistband twice. It also has a lapped side zipper and interfaced waistband.
I paired my new green skirt with my 'Black Cherry' blouse, another 1940 McCall make:
It's been unseasonably warm here (though it was still cold in these photos). I like how the skirt can be worn in a collegiate style as well with a nice big chunky sweater (I just need some saddle shoes!):
I love the new skirt...and here's some twirling to show you how much I love it....right in front of Holyrood Palace...heheheeh:
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas weekend and got up to some sewing! I'm looking forward to some more year end sewing.
