Our super-fine French fabric in a mod green, brown and white print, was great for the simple lines of a McCall’s M6750 blouse in Mod Cotton Voile.
McCall’s M6750 Blouse in Mod Cotton Voile Pattern Review
Pattern: Palmer/Pletsch for McCall’s M6750 Blouse (view C)
Pattern Description: “Semi-fitted shirts have raised neckline, fold-back facings, darts, shaped hemline and narrow hem. A: Sleeveless. B, C: Two-piece sleeves with seam opening and button cuffs. B: Three-quarter length sleeves. C: Long sleeves.”
Pattern Sizing: B5 (8-16) or F5 (16-24). Bonnie made a size 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very. Plus, because it’s a Palmer/Pletsch pattern, it includes alteration lines for a perfect fit.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Bonnie liked that the collar was part of the front and back bodice pieces, creating an elegant raised collar. The three sleeve options are also nice to add variety.
Fabric used: A fun designer cotton voile from France.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Bonnie thought the sizing seemed to run small. Normally a size 14 would be quite large on her, but for this top she only needed to take in the shoulders about ¾”, shorten the sleeves slightly, and lengthen the bottom hem by 1”.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes! It’s a very versatile pattern with lots of customization options. The instructions for alterations ensure a great fit.
Conclusion: This is a flattering (and easy) blouse pattern that can be made up in a variety of ways. Any patterned voile would look fantastic with this blouse.
