Thoughts on McCall's 7254
Isn't if funny how you can have a run of very successful garments and then just like that a couple of meh garments? That is exactly how I feel about my latest jacket/cardigan. Not that there is really anything wrong with it but it just feels a bit off on me.
The pattern I used was McCall's 7254 and I made it up using some lovely weight rugby knit with a soft fluffy finish that was an op shop find.
I finished the jacket a month ago now but because the weather has been too warm for it and because I am not loving it, it has been largely unworn in that time. I may reuse this pattern at some point but it won't be for this view.
I have mentioned before that I don't like waste, so aside from the time and money spent on projects that are less than stellar, I also have a problem with throw away fashion so unless this gets worn it will be donated to the local Nurse Maude shop or recycled. The jeans I am wearing in this post are quite the opposite of fast fashion and were made last year. That was not so long ago I hear you say! These Ginger jeans however have been worn to death literally and now the zip is pulled up with a piece of bungy elastic but I still refuse to get rid of them because they are my favourites. I may have to pension them off though before I end up with an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.
