I made McCall's 6612 which is a very easy pattern. I made view "A". However, I shortened as a tunic to where with pants. I also added about 1/4" to side seams so it would not fit so snug. The pattern was very, very easy. I used a ITY knit, and awful blue that I had in my stash. I wanted to see what the style looked like on mysef since it had some good reviews on Pattern Review. The material I used snagged very easy, and when I tried on before it was finish it got a run in the material around the arm whole. You can't see it when it is finished, but I know it is there. I also think that the solid color is a little boring,and definately needs some type of belt to break it up and some jewelry of some sort. I like the pattern, but around the shoulder area it seams a little tights. Maybe it needs a Full Back adjustment for my figure. The sleeves are quarter lenght and I think I could add a little to the sleeve so it wouldn't be so tight. I think I would like to try to make again out of better material and make some adjustments because it would be a great top for work. I don't think I would wear a dress, but I really do like maxi length I see on everyone.
