McCall’s M696, copyright 2014, The McCall Pattern Co.
Bought this one at an actual store, not in someone’s yard! But don’t worry, it was on sale. Although I do not love shopping at JoAnn’s, I totally love their iPhone app and the fact that I can check it for pattern clearance sales and schedule a couple hours to go there and sit with the pattern book and look at every page and buy everything I want because at 2 dollars a pop, why not.
Digital camouflage cotton rip-stop! Bought this at Michael Levine Home Fabrics in downtown LA about five years ago. I think I had a plan for it when I bought it? Maybe? Something about blending in with robots? This is a better use anyway I’m sure.
what I changed from the pattern
What else I changed to make it all possible:
-Center front on fold.
-Side zipper, lapped application. That beautiful metal zipper was in my zipper collection already. I’m so in love with zipper that I saved the extra after shortening it to the correct size. It’ll trim something someday.
-Two rows of elastic at waist, to make it look more solid and functional and also to actually be more solid and functional.
-Pockets. She didn’t ask for them, but I knew she’d want them. This ended up being kind of tricky with the side zip and the elasticized waist, but what-evs, totally worked out.
See? Look how cute:
