McCall’s 6613 – DONE! My birthday gift to me.

I finished the shirt I’ve been working on. Although it took me a while to do, I LOVE it. The shirt was easy to make, let me just say that. It only took me some time because, as you all can well imagine, sometimes everyday life can slow you down or keep you busy with other things. The best thing is, the plaid matches! It may not be perfect, but it’s pretty darn close. That’s because of this awesome tutorial
on the Mood Sewing Network. I printed it out, followed it, and it worked out great. So, I completed it this weekend as a gift to myself for my 52nd birthday (December 16). The fabric is from Mood. It is so soft and warm – perfect for the cold, snowy weather we’ve had lately.

I see at least one more of these shirts in my future! The pattern is a unisex pattern, so I made this in a small. There are variations in the style. I actually combined two of them because I wanted this style for the shirt-tail (hem) but with pockets, but without the tabs for the sleeves. The plaid matching took a little time but was not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

Anyway, I’m pretty  sure this is my last project for this year.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

I have to figure out what project I want to work on for the coming year. Thanks for reading!

  1. Happy birthday! 52?? Wow, you don't look 52 at all!

    Very nice job on the shirt, too. I love to see plaid/checks cut on the bias; it presents such a cool effect.

  2. Your shirt came out great. It looks as if it's made of flannel. Is it? I feel cozier just looking at it! By the way, happy birthday!

  3. Love the variation of the plaid on the yokes and front band ~ very nicely done! Can see why you love this shirt – the fit looks great on you … J
