My Designin’ December me-made Copy is finished! I decided long ago to copy this Designer Original … an Oscar de la Renta, Fall 2018.
I did notice that it had these strange looking tied-on sleeves and decided those would be a work place hazard for me! I did like the length of the sleeves and the slits in them though.
I’ve used this pattern, McCall’s M6606, before and didn’t have to make many changes – a slight change to the collar and the hem line and the sleeves – those I narrowed a bit, left the traditional cuff off and made a new cuff with a slit.
I definitely had fun with the “appliqués” on this tunic top! I love this embroidered fabric!
I cut off a section of the embroidered fabric with a couple of birds and flowers on it and pressed a light interfacing to the back of it, with a cloth over top of course. Then I carefully cut out the birds and flowers.
I was again lucky to find the correct colours in my thread stash! After I decided where I wanted to place everything, I basted the embroidered pieces to my fabric with Wonder Tape.
I used the appliqué stitch on my sewing machine.
I am very happy with the result!
I’ve really enjoyed making this one and think it will fit into my life style just wonderfully!
