McCall's 6568

On my quest for a great pair of kick-around fun pants, I picked up this McCall's pattern 6568 when JoAnn's was having one of their kick-ass 99-cent sales and I finally got around to trying it out.  My goal is to find a pattern I'm really happy with, and then make a covet pair of white pants.  I like the drawstring/elastic waist, as long as it's not too bunchy.  I like a good wide leg, but not a sailor pant (already have sew this in blue).  Pockets are fun, I like pockets, handy for putting things in. 

Well, the long and short of it is, the jury is mostly still out on these...I don't think it's "THE" pattern for the white pants to come.  But, hopefully they will have use around the house anyway.  What do you think?

See how awkwardly high the pockets are?  Yeah, I was too lazy to go back and fix that.  If you read my review, you'd understand why...too many alterations on what should have been a quick and easy sew.

Maybe if the legs were a little less tapered at the bottom?




  1. I think they rock! Have this pattern, am going to get it out and work with it. I like the width at the bottom.

  2. Thanks Coco! Best of luck with your pants!
