McCalls 6707

Here are some fun cropped trousers I made a couple months ago (for the botched SWAP contest, but oh well).  These are all photos I took to submit for the contest (and then forgot to!) but I have to say, I prefer them with a white tank that my mom happened to give me recently.

The pattern is McCalls 6707, and the fit on these is quite great, I have to say, and I did no big alterations.  Just took them in a smidge at the waist.
 These have a cute waistband detail, but I just don't like them with a shirt tucked in.  I don't have a tiny waist (not complaining... very happy with myself... etc. etc...), and prefer not to highlight that part of my body.  I blogged about the orange top here.
 This top is Vogue 1259, here.

 All in all a success in my book, that I'll be able to wear easily into fall.  I definitely recommend this pattern.  The fabric is from JoAnns, a plain gray twill and one of their "fashion bottomweights," I think, but I can't find it online anymore.
 This sweater is blogged about here.


  1. I'd say a success! Great looking pant.

  2. Thanks for your review. I have this pattern but was a bit scared to cut yet another piece of fabric after recently using 2 pants patterns requiring massive alterations to achieve a barely acceptable fit (that kind of sewing isn't fun!). Your review has eased my fears as we appear to have similar body types and height.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It is wonderful to know someone is reading. :-)
