It seems I just can’t get enough sewing with knits! My newest knit wardrobe with The McCall Pattern Company is simple to create and will keep you fashionable and comfy. M7548 is a five-piece versatile sportswear collection. Mix and match the five pieces to complete a fantastic wardrobe that’s easy to sew, wears like a dream, and travels well, too. The fabric I chose is a Ponte knit with a touch of Spandex, a medium weight fabric that stitches like a woven, but drapes like a knit. Look for the pattern at your favorite retailer or at Nancy’s Notions.
Suitable Fabrics—moderate stretch knits (35% crosswise stretch): Ponte knit, cotton knit, novelty knit, fleece.
Mix and Match Styles
Pants E and Top C: For a casual spring/summer look, pair cropped pants in Style E with a 3/4-length top, Style C in bright moderate-stretch knits.
Jacket A, Top B, and Skirt D: The classic styling of this pattern can also mix-and-match to create a more office-appropriate, yet comfortable, look. The knit jacket is lightweight and drapes well in knit fabrics. Paired with sleeveless top, Style B and long skirt, Style D—this look is perfect for a dressy-casual setting.
Pants E and Top C: You cannot go wrong with a timeless grey top, Style C. Paired with the cropped pant, Style E, this outfit is perfect for on-the-go.
