I haven’t forgotten about my 6PAC for this winter.
I really need/want a black winter coat and a check in my closet showed that refreshing the whole black/grey winter capsule was in order. The first fabric chosen would be the black wool for the coat – not shown here because a photo of a black hole isn’t any different than a photo of a black piece of fabric. My second choice for fabrics is the grey immediately left. It is a beefy, cotton/poly, double knit. This is what I’m using for the trousers. I’m using the recently almost fitted McCalls 6440
I have enough also for one of the layering garments. I’ll be making vest Vogue 8756
I have a 2nd piece of the knit fabric. The fabric looks exactly the same, but when I handle it I can tell it is not as beefy as the first. I want to make a top out of this 2nd piece. I haven’t decided exactly what pattern to use. I’m thinking of my recently purchased Loes Hinse 5210
I haven’t fitted it but given my previous experience with Loes patterns, I believe that will be super easy. It’s just that I’d like something a little more exciting. Maybe McCalls 6399
But then I think, as busy as the vest is, maybe the top should be much plainer. Maybe I should be doing a classic T shirt, Pamela’s Patterns 104 would be a good choice;
Opps, this post just got entirely too long. Come back tomorrow.
