McCall's 6439

This is McCall's #6439. It was pretty easy. I got nervous while I was cutting out the pattern because it was so intense and weird, but I had no problem putting it all together.

One thing that I don't love about this pattern is that you can't change the skirt length. The lining and the shell are sewed together at the bottom so in order to alter the hem you'd need to undo a lot of sewing. I got lucky that the length was all right for me, but I wouldn't mind if it were a bit shorter.

I used a Simply Silky print from Jo-Ann Fabrics. It was not super easy to work with; it was very slippery.  For the lining I used a teal Tropical Punch fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics.


  1. That's a really cute skirt!!! Your fabric choice was perfect!!! I'm enjoying your blog. I put you on my blogroll so I could keep up with your work. Looking forward to seeing what you sew up next.
