Easy McCall’s 6204

Pattern Description:

M6204Misses’ and Women’s Tunic: Loose fitting, pull over tunics. (Mine is not quite loose – my preference). Extended shoulders, stitched hem. I made view A that has short sleeve on right side left side drapes, angled hem and optional jewels. (Wrong side of fabric will show.)

Pattern Sizing: Comes in Misses’ (8 through 16) and Women’s (18W through 24W.) I made size 10.

Did it look like the photo or drawing once done sewing with it? Well, yes. It was just a bit more fitted. Like I wanted it.

DSCF2896I don’t think it’s working with the plaid pants – but I like it.

DSCF2901I like it with the jeans and open toes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Well, to be honest I didn’t look at the instructions one bit, so I am not sure if they were or were not.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like asymmetrical sleeves and drapes. The only thing I dislike is that the underarms are VERY LOW. I sewn a whopping 3.5 inches to close the abundance of exposure. ***If you make the top as is be sure to shave and keep your hands at waist level.*** 

Fabric used? I used a slub knit from the stash purchased from a while ago.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made. Well, 1. This view comes with only three pieces. I used one. “How?” You might say. Well, there is a front and a back. They are identical except the neckline for the front is just lower than the back. 2. I cut both front and back using the back pattern piece on doubled fabric. When it came to the neckline I cut the back as is and cut the front lower. 3. There is also a neckband piece. I didn’t want to fool with it because I was doing quick and easy. I omitted that and just roll-folded the neck seam and topstitched.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Well, I do like it and want to make another but I doubt it will soon. I’m keeping it just in case. Yes, I recommend.

Conclusion. A woman MUST have a red top and I have mine.

Until Later, Schey.

You did for this pattern what the picture on the envelope did not do. You showed how cute this really is. I love it with the plaid pants. Those pants are to live for! I had a pair similar in corduroy. Now I'm longing for them....I wore them out. Might need to make some new ones....Nice work!

Thanks, God's Girl! I wear my plaids a lot too. I am a sucker for plaid and paisley. To 'live' for? I agree. Because when I first bought them I did live in them. I think it almost got to the point my husband would have loved to burn them! lol

Looks like a top Michelle Obama wore in yellow (when she did the Dougie). I liked it on her and I like it on you.

I does, doesn't it, Serenity. I hadn't paid attention it until you mentioned it. And thank you a lot!
