Soduko Contest: McCall’s 7392

March 18, 2017

McCalls 7392

I’m trying to catch up on my posting!! This past week on my sewcation, I made McCall’s 7392. I made View B, at the View A length, out of a purple wool suiting that I had in my stash. I think I bought this fabric from fashionfabricsclub.com a year or two ago.

I cut a size 12 and made no modifications. It went together lickety-split with no issues. The top stitching required some slow and careful stitching, but last year I splurged on a 1/4 seam foot and this foot makes topstitching so much easier. I even use this foot for topstitching that is less than 1/4 inch. The openings on this foot make it so much easier when straight lines are important.

I got my machine serviced before the Soduko Contest began, and boy am I glad that I did. My programmable button-hole wasn’t working. It turns out the sensor on my button-hole foot was out of alignment and it couldn’t “talk” to the machine. Thank goodness that problem got corrected because the programmable button-holes really came in handy on this skirt. I feel pretty good about the button-holes themselves, but I’m not super keen on that button-hole an inch away from the hem. I followed the directions for placing the buttons, but if I sew this skirt again, I’m going to change the button placement.

In the Soduko Contest, I’m going to wear this skirt with my grey turtleneck, grey boots, and a tweed jacket, but here it is with my oversized cocoon sweater:
