Then & Now w/ Mccalls 6844

Can you believe January is closing in so quickly, not giving me enough time to acclimate to the New Year. With the first of the year moving swiftly, I need to get on the ball and get some of my goals & projects in action.  In the mean time, thought I'd share a Then & Now...

... with it being Friday !!!  I decided to join the ranks and rock jeans and thought what better piece to top it off with... none other than Mccalls 6844.  When I made it back in 2014, my plan was to immediately make another one, but other projects bulldozed their way to the top of my to-sew list.

With the temps in the low 20s this beautiful Friday...  M6844 is perfect for that warmth factor and this sweater knit fleece is so snuggly too.



Now  2016                                             Then   2014

Thinking now would be a good time to work up the same fabric in winter white.



Paired it with a walmart tank top, old loft jeans and once @ work stepped into my electric blue pumps.

I like this on you now as well as then. But you've made me think about that pattern again. I don't wear the version I made as much now that I'm in a more casual office so I need to make another one for this stage of my life. Thanks for reminding me of the pattern and hope to see your next version soon!

Thank you Carolyn ! it's worth another remake. Your existing one can work for your work environment too.. Just pair it with black jeans, a tank top & boots.

I agree, it looks just as good on you now is it did back then! Your shoes really make it work too! Love your "now and then" comparison!
