Here are some more details on the pattern:
Pattern: McCall's 6781. I sewed up view c.
Size I sewed: Size 2, but added an inch in length, and shortened the sleeves slightly. Still a little big even though the size chart said I should sew a 2.
Material used: Corduroy from Joann's (Maybe part of their doodles collection? I think I've seen it there lately) and muslin for the contrast (bad choice there, but it was in my stash and it worked).
Notions needed: A zipper, and I added buttons on the front for cuteness.
Appropriately rated: No. It said it was easy, but the pattern called for a lot of handsewing, and it had a zipper with very little explanation of how to put it in. Maybe I'm just annoyed because it was my first zipper and it didn't turn out very well, but I wouldn't call it easy. Certainly not fast.
Time to make it: Including cutting it out, it probably took 8 hours altogether, but I'm pretty slow.
Comments: I swear, whoever wrote the pattern didn't actually sew it. I think I'll sew it again, but I'll sew the one with the square neck, and use a smaller seam allowance in order to make sewing on the sleeves a little easier. The pattern doesn't mention that the sleeves need to be gathered a little in order to fit (maybe that was my fault, though). For the price, I would recommend it with reservations, but not to a beginner.
Hope this helps! Happy sewing!
