M6612 | Cowl Maxi


Hey Guys!! Long time no see, is it March yet? This year is moving too fast, gahhh.
I hope everything is going great for you in your sewing lab, my cave stays busy!! Unfortunately, I just can't seem to find time to blog about it! 




I'm still sewing tho, and I've got quite a few post in drafts that I'm committing to publishing, starting with this yummy fabric.


I purchased this fabric some time ago from Fabricmart. It's a designer fabric, but I can't remember the designer since I purchased it a few years back, yea I kno....


The hand is so yummy, it's a knit but unsure what kind, and it's pretty heavy too!


I used McCall's 6612, and it's such a simple pattern. It was only 3
pieces, so of course that alone made life simple.
 I had no problem putting it together, I did add 3" to the length for a true maxi experience.
 I had to chop 2.5" from the cowl, because it was just too much cowl for me, lol.


Overall, it's very comfy and got plenty wear this winter, I mean season. 
We didn't get winter this year in these parts, just cool breezes.;-)


M6612 for Reference

Thanx for stopping by, til next time...
C-ya!!!
