I have never been the sporty type. Yoga pants are something comfortable to wear around the house. You know what I mean?!
This McCalls pattern – M6658 – is considered an activewear pattern but it could just as easily be considered loungewear or night clothes depending on fabric choices.
This cocoon wrap had me intrigued – how did they get that from a flat piece of fabric? I just had to know.
The drawing wasn’t much help, so I couldn’t wait to get into the envelope and see the pieces.
The piece did take a little thinking outside the box to figure it out. The collar is very large. It is barely holding onto the dress form!
This is the corner of the back fitting into the front. The sleeve opening is just below my thumb – you can see the turned under edge if you look closely.
The fabric I used was a slub knit from fabric.com. It is very lightweight and drapey.
The back is plain. You can see how long down my arm is the opening.
This is ‘how it works.”
Overall I am pleased with it. The collar is very large and in this lightweight fabric it drapes over my shoulders and doesn’t really stay put very well. I think a loftier fabric choice would correct that. But for lounging in jeans or yoga pants around the house, it does it’s job of keeping the chill off. It is like wearing a hug!
Happy Creating everyone!
