McCall’s Tunic

I thought it was time to finally make something just for me. A few weeks ago, I picked up McCall 6287 and some gorgeous black jersey. It’s been staring at me ever since so I decided to put it to good use…. I should have done it sooner, this was probably one of the EASIEST patterns that I’ve ever made. In fact it was so easy, I had to re-read the directions 3 or 4 times to make sure that I wasn’t just imagining how simple it was! What makes this particular pattern such a piece of cake? Raw edges – because you’re working with jersey, you don’t have to finish the edges of your material (they won’t ravel or fray). However, this does mean that you’ll need to carefully cut your material to make sure all the edges are smooth and don’t have any ‘burrs’. The sewing is only 4 steps making it a perfect pattern for the beginner or someone just wanting to try out using knit material – I HIGHLY recommend this pattern!

    Super cute! I love easy patterns; I’ll have to try this. I need something simple to get my sewing groove back (I also made a plush peep and my son immediately threw it out of his basket – but the older girls I made ones for loved them. Maybe it’s a girl thing?).

    Stacy, do you need a serger to make this or can a regular sewing machine work? Jersey makes me nervous!

    Thanks everyone! This truly was a super-easy project… easily made from start to finish in 90 min. (or less).

    Beth – I didn’t use a serger with this one, just my regular machine. Just be sure that you use a zig-zag stitch and you’ll be fine – this is a great jersey project!

    BTW, glad the Peep thing isn’t just in my house!
