I present, Mike, jumping for joy in his fourth version of McCall's M6044.
I don't have much to add about this pattern. It's really a winner, in my book. Mike loves his new shirts. He's even picked out some flannel to make a couple cold weather versions.
I'll let the photos do most of the talking on this one. Mike really got into posing this time around. It should be noted that Meg gets full Art Director credit for these photos. It's a physical impossibility to take yourself seriously when Meg's around. :-D
Mike and Josh, Meg's main squeeze, both got their turn in front of the lens on this particular day. They were a riot!
I'm excited for the completion of a project we're currently working on, Project Man Sweater, simply to see the product of a picture session involving the three of them.
I expect that I'll sew for Mike much more regularly now that he's honed his pattern cutting skills. I currently have a few patterns at home for him including the Albion duffle coat, McCall M6803 , and the Strathcona Henley.
Aren't we cute in our Hers/His McCall's?
This is a sneak peek at my final version of the famous M6696. I'll show you more of this project on Friday before I wrap (hint, hint) things up and get closer to caught-up with my real life. I knew I sewed a lot to take on our trip, but I didn't fully realize how much I made until I started posting! Sadly, I'll be back to posting pictures from the backyard soon. LOL.
I really feel like I've finally had my A-HA moment with garment sewing, so that's cool. All of the things I made to take on vacation have been in regular rotation since our return. It makes my hope/dream of an entirely self-stitched wardrobe seem like it's within reach!
