McCalls 6994 - Completed

This is really cute! I'm glad I selected this knit from my stash. The colors are great for transitioning to fall, it can be dressed up with a jacket and some boots as the weather changes and I love the way it fits! I cut this out in the large which reflect sizes 16-18 which is close to my RTW size. As I continue this journey I am finding out my skirts are not much different from store brought sizes, the only adjustments I have needed to make is to the waist. When I start on my pants that could change! Anyhoo, this pattern is a keeper and it has a lot of potential.

See how cute it looks blowing in the wind? It just flows ever so! I have plans in the future to make this in a solid black or green. I already have the perfect shoes to compliment the next one or few.

As for my blue pencil skirt  I wanted to sew up next using New Look Pattern 6228 again will be rearrange in the rotation. Unfortunately the stretch piping I ordered got sent to my mother house in Detroit. When I double checked my email it clearly shows my shipping address here in Charlotte but no worries I already have the next skirt planned.  

I'm going to start on the skirt from Simplicity 1466. It from the Threads magazine collection below. I will be making View E up in a toile. I'm going to test my skills with this one. This will be the first fitted skirt I sewn up in awhile, so let me get started.


See you soon!

Stitching and knitting and loving everything about it!


  1. Great skirt Sabrina! The fabric and colors are beautiful, it definitely will look great with boots too with that cute hem-line. Good job!!

    1. Thanks so much. It really is a cute skirt in person and when I wear it to work I know I'm going to get a few customers. Are your ready to sew something for yourself yet? Let me know I think I can go to FedEx and have them copy the pattern for you :)

    2. Hi, thanks for the suggestion, that's very sweet of you, however I'm going to make a A-line skirt first and see how that goes. I've bought a pair of salmon with brown shoes, a bit retro looking, and I think a A-line skirt will go well with them. I'm going for the fabric next week :-). Thanks for your kindness! Hugs x
