Winter Sewing (McCalls 4968)

January 9, 2018

 

I just finished sewing a winter wool jumper dress from 1970s-era McCall’s 4968.  I’m very happy with it: it is comfortable, unusual, and very warm.  My Grandpa and Grandma both made admiring comments about it when I wore it for the first time last Sunday.  The thrifted worsted wool was easy to work with so long as I was careful to press it well, grade all the seams, and edge-stitch all the darts, seams, and edges on the right side to keep them flat and crisp.

Please come visit the sewing blog that I share with my husband for more details and other recent vintage sewing projects: Mr and Mrs Rat.
