McCall’s M6440

The plan for this week was to work on a muslin for my M6440 pants. However I was more tired than expected – after traveling twice to Poland and back – and now this will be on of the activities during upcoming 2 weeks while being at my mom’s.

So far I have managed to trace the pattern and sew on stitching lines – including all marks.

This Misses’ Pants M6440 pattern by Palmer/Platsch includes easy fit options to different figure types – thus the three lines in the back crotch. I marked them in 3 different colours. I put as well 2 sized in front crotch – 10 and 12 – as I am not so sure which one would fit better.

I am very curious how this pattern will work.

Meanwhile I am choosing other patterns I would like to make muslins during upcoming 2 weeks. There are a lot of plans…

Tomorrow travel day – I hope for nice weather.

  1. I look forward to watching those trousers/pants come together. I do know about being tired. I want to complete my cardigan but life happens. Keep us all posted!!!!!!

  2. I’m interested to see how that pattern works as well. I generally don’t make pants, but that looks like a good basic pattern, particularly for fitting.

  3. So much to sew, so little time…

    Ooo, love that Butterick Retro pattern. Hope your mother’s recovery is going well.

    • This Butterick is really interesting – I am curious about it as well.
      My mom needs a lot of time to recover – age and amount of hospital stays and surgery left big stamp on her health. Fortunately she is getting better every day. And the nice sunny weather is helping a lot.

    I love that vintage Butterick in center. I have that in my stash as well. Looking forward to your progress with the pants.
