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.
