McCall 3606: The Collegiate Christmas Skirt

YAY! Another 1940 McCall make!  Many of you know that I'm on a mission to sew up as many of these patterns from the year 1940 as possible.  Check out my progress here.

I made up McCall 3606, which is a straight skirt with an option of sewing the skirt with belt loops or without.  I choose to forego the belt loops on this version.  I also sewed up this pattern without instructions. Thank you 1940 McCall for your awesome printed patterns!

I made the skirt out of lovely green wool that I bought a couple of christmases ago.  Sewing it up was fairly easy but I did have to grade it up about 4 inches, which was easy to do although I did have to cut out the waistband twice.  It also has a lapped side zipper and interfaced waistband.

I paired my new green skirt with my 'Black Cherry' blouse, another 1940 McCall make:

It's been unseasonably warm here (though it was still cold in these photos).  I like how the skirt can be worn in a collegiate style as well with a nice big chunky sweater (I just need some saddle shoes!):

I love the new skirt...and here's some twirling to show you how much I love it....right in front of Holyrood Palace...heheheeh:

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas weekend and got up to some sewing!  I'm looking forward to some more year end sewing.
