Anorak McCall’s 5635

Standard

Hoo boy. I decided to make this one reversible. And in knit fabrics. I made it one size smaller since I was working with knits. It is still pretty big. Had to make a few adjustments to the pattern, getting rid of front facing, for example. Didn’t get that quite right on the first try. Must hack off another 2 inches on each side. Guess I didn’t see there were two fold lines.
And the sleeves. Dear god, this must have been sized for some other kind of primate. I cut three inches off the sleeves and still have enough for the very deep cuff. If you opt for the elastic cuff, you’ll have to make the sleeve much narrower or end up with about 4x bulk around the wrist. Crazy.
Pics to follow tomorrow after this shapes up a bit.
Oh, and the hood is huge too, but I kinda like it.
