|New Look 6250, its old now, but a favorite|
I purchased this wild Hawaiian style print last year then promptly lost this intended pattern. When I re-arranged things so I could make room for a quilting table (that will have to be another post) I found the missing pattern. Now I am going to make this shirt so I have it for next summer. I have two yards of fabric and it must only be about 42 inches wide. The pattern calls for two yards of 45-inch wide fabric in the size I plan to make.
I have enough fabric for all of the main pieces, but I am going to have to cut the pockets on a fold and the sleeve is a little wider than the half fold on the fabric.
|enough room for pockets if cut on the fold|
- Pockets on the fold so I have enough fabric, no big deal I can do that.
|enough fabric on this strip for the underarm splice|
- A splice under the arm so the sleeves are wide enough, also do-able.
|Careful placement may let me match the front|
- Front not matching, well that is much less desirable. Or is it possible I can make that match?
