Pattern Number: McCall’s 8209; and I made view C
Pattern Description: Misses’ and Women’s Dresses and Jumpsuit. There are three different views on this pattern and two views are dresses, which are views A and B. and View C, which is what I made is a Jumpsuit. Sewing Skill Level: The skill level is rated as easy.
Pattern Pieces: The pattern includes 12 pattern pieces to make this jumpsuit but I only had to use eight. Notions Needed: An 18 inch invisible zipper, 3/8 inch elastic, and one package of single fold bias tape and thread.
Suggested Fabrics: Cotton blends, Gingham, Sateen and Poplin
Pattern Sizing: 8-32W and the Wide sizes starts with size 18
Size that I Cut: I cut a size 20, but I probably should have gone with an 18 because I had to take it in about an inch on each side to get more of a snug fit on the bodice.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? For the most part yes, but there was a bit of confusion when it came to the construction of the sleeves and how I was supposed to clip and pivot as that part was not easy to follow. Alterations or changes: The only change I made was with the sleeve construction. I basically just did my own thing because I didn't get what the instructions were saying to do. I also finished the lining by using Fabric Tac instead of slip stitching What did you particularly dislike about the pattern? That was the only thing that I didn’t like about this pattern were the instructions for the clippings of the sleeve pattern piece. What did you particularly like about the pattern? I love sweetheart neckline, the puffy sleeves, the princess seams, the front v shape at the bottom of the bodice, the gathers at the pant seams, and the elastic in the top of the sleeves. I also like how the casing for the elastic was constructed by using bias tape. Fabric Used: ANKARA African Wac Fabric
Purchased: House of Mamiwata
Any modification recommendations: No Would you recommend it to others? Yes
