Another Candidate...

Back with another outfit which is auditioning for a spot on my travel wardrobe to Sicily. I liked this pattern, M6571, from its release, and I seem to have good luck with the Palmer/Pletsch McCalls patterns.
I made the long-sleeved, boat-neck top and the straight-leg pant. For the first time, I laid my Lynda Maynard pant on the pattern and adapted it to fit me. Yay!
I haven't made a straight-leg pant for a long time, but I quite like this. It is made from an amazing fabric from Marcy Tilton; she calls it Italian Black Microfiber Jersey and I'd like to sew with it again.
The top fabric is also from Marcy...these wonderful microfiber knits are like nothing I've ever used; easy to sew, lightweight, no wrinkles...perfect for travel!
I have a feeling this candidate will be going to Italy!

  1. You always look so elegant in B&W. I think you are right about this being a great travel ensemble. Is the top a lighter knit than the bottom?

    1. Thanks, Martha...the bottom is actually a little lighter than the top, although both are extremely lightweight. These are WONDERFUL fabrics!

  18. I know I'm coming late to the party here, but it's just too coincidental that I've stumbled upon your blog, Margy. I'm holding this pattern in my hand and thinking it would be a good choice for our trip to Sicily in May. Just had to write in thanks, because your photos of this completed pattern were the best!
