FO - McCall's 6400 and Adieu 2011


Here is my second to last FO for the year, another McCall's 6400 top. this time for my Sister. I also made her a dress, but she has to take pictures and send it to me first. This is my second time making this shirt. The first time was the black gauzy knit that I had to double layer. This was a quick project that took no more than an hour to make. I like how it is more drapey on her versus me. I made the medium and that seems to fit a more petite frame. I will try to buy the next size up when they go on sale again to get the larger slouchy look.


So I counted my successful FOs for this year and it totaled 61. My goal for 2011 was to make less volume and more quality, but I am happy with most of what I made. I will try to make a post that shows my favorites and the breakdown of what I made.

I go back and forth with this pattern. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. When I see it on other people, I think it's fabulous. McCall's are on sale for 0.99 at JA through tomorrow. Happy new year!
