DIY EXAGGERATED FLARE PATTERN MODIFICATIONS
The video shows exactly what I did to modify my SIMPLICITY 8655 pants pattern. You can do the modification to any pant pattern but since I have a SEW-ALONG VIDEO for these already I figured I would just hack my own pattern. I used a 10 oz. White Denim I had in my stash. I suggest using at least 8 or 10 oz denim and at least 2% stretch. This is an easy hack!
DIY OFF THE SHOULDER TOP MODIFICATION
I love this top so much! I am already planning on making MCCALL’S 7686 again for my yellow collection. It sews up really fast and looks great. I added length to the sleeve because I like that look I also added an inch of length and created the casing for my elastic between layers instead of folding over and stitching down as instructed in the pattern instructions. The fabric I got at JOANN and later realized that its the same fabric as the pattern envelope, LOL! I don’t think I have ever done that before.
