Mccalls 6910

I scored this awesome pattern on ebay for $4.50

It’s so freaking cute i plan on doing the C version. Has anyone else used this pattern? I’d like to see some finished or in progress projects. Also I bought this in a 13 and I need to adjust it to a 14, can anyone give me some advice on that?

  • It is a great, classic shirtwaist! Before you go adjusting the pattern, please consider making a mockup in muslin or scrap fabric first. Patterns of this period often have A LOT of ease – you may find that you need to take it in rather than let it out!

  • I have that one at home too but I haven’t done anything with it. Looking forward to seeing yours made up!

  • That dress is adorable. Casey put up a pattern grading tutorial not too long ago, here’s a link:
