Pattern Review: McCall’s 6711 Suit

Threads magazine - 169 - Oct./Nov. 2013

Style tip: The style photos on the pattern envelope suggest several color-blocking options.

This review was originally featured in Threads #169 (October/November 2013). If this pattern is no longer readily available via the pattern company, try searching online for the pattern name and number, or try Etsy.com or eBay.com.

McCall’s 6711

This wardrobe includes five coordinating pieces. There is a semifitted jacket with a collar that can be worn up or folded down to form lapels. Next is a loose-fitting, V-neck, sleeveless, pull-on top. The design also creates a dress with an elastic waist. The lined pencil skirt has princess seams, a faced contour waistband, and a hemline slit. Last is a slim pant with a faced waistline, waist darts, slanted pockets, and a center-back zipper. For the jacket, pant, and skirt, choose medium-weight fabric such as wool crepe or linen. For the blouse and dress, use fabrics that drape such as charmeuse or crepe de Chine. The sample suit was sewn in wool single crepe from Mood Fabrics.

(Sized Misses’ 6-22 for busts 30.5-44 in. and hips 32.5-46 in.)

Style Tip: The style photos on the pattern envelope suggest several color-blocking options.
