Finished an OOP McCall's 2111

Finished M2111, not too happy with the tank/cami, but I will still wear it. This a very light-weight knit so I know I will still be freezing in the office. So that is my 1st make for March...

NEXT UP!!! Another M6996.... Next will be my fav M6996. I have this grey "eyelash" type of knit. I've been sewing a lot of grey lately. Not even my fav color, but it was another deal that I could not pass up 1.60 per yard.....

Working on McCall's oldie but goodie for me

I am currently working on M2111, which I know is OOP. I was able to pick up this grey, lightweight knit. We have a place in Philly called Jomar and I was able to get the fabric for about 1.60, maybe less, per yard.

I've made some adjustments on the cardi. I reduced the armhole by 1". I find that the bigger the size the bigger the armscye. I also reduced the sleeve cap by 1" and I added about 2" to the length of the cardi.

The tank/cami that comes with it. I lowered the bust dart, added a bit of length and added about an inch to the hips.

Here is the pattern. Not finished yet. Tired and can't find my camera to take a pic.

McCall's and easy and I love it!!! Oh, I am making the long sleeved version.
