Description

McCall’s 6442. View C with cuffs from View B. No major modifications were made besides narrowing the sleeves. I used a heavy tweed fabric and lined with purple cotton/sateen. The buttons and shoulder straps were added as accents. I chose to use my own belt and not make the suggested belt.

I liked the project because it was fairly easy to construct. But it required a lot of hand stitching, which I didn’t like.
