McCalls 6744: Then & Now

Just when I was settling for cooler temps... bam... New York is expected to hit the 90s today... can I say enough.... sheesh.

At 10:00a.m., this is what it looks like from our office window... do you see that haze, brazenly obscuring the clarity of the sky.  To add to it the sunlight is beckoning humidity & heat.




To combat the heat while out and about, I donned McCalls 6744 (review here), an easy breezy cotton knit that works well for the lazy days of Summer.



Then May - 2013


June  2013


Of course, I must have my Linus Blanket (a/k/a Blazer) in tow.  To combat the 55 degree-like temps on the train and in the office.


NOW 2014

M6744 is paired with Sears Metaphor Blazer (refashioned to short sleeves) 
9West Peeptoe Pumps & 9West Tote bag


If one is still sewing for Summer and looking for an easy slip on & go dress.  McCalls 6744 is perfect.

Dang it. I saw the post on Pinterest and thought, "Wow, I want to make that jacket because it looks great with that dress!"
*sigh*

Thank and sorry to disappoint. However, Sears still carries metaphor blazers and always on sale.

Thank you Lori.

Love that fabric!

Sheila said...

Thanks Adrienne. I must say I should pinch myself, because that fabric was in another colorway of yellow, gray, turquoise & white and didn't get it.
