McCalls 7026 - a "semi-fitted unlined jacket" (or possibly a cardigan???)
Love the style lines on this garment, which I made in cheap fleece to test out the pattern before making it up again. I will need to make the following changes:
1. lengthen by at least 1" possibly 2" (it covers the models behind but barely reaches mine!... but I do have a long back so adding length is a fairly standard adjustment).... however this means that I will need LONGER ZIPS...arghhhhhh!!
2. USE THE WALKING FOOT when working with fleece!
3. Change the pockets - they are too far back - uncomfortably so. Might put a pocket into the princess seam instead.
I am going to wear it a few times before I try adjusting the pattern though.
Once that was finished it was on to a job I have been meaning to do for months... which took 30 minutes (don't they always).... a waterproof cover for the BBQ!
