Wrap Battle Wrap Up!

Wrap Battle
McCalls 6884 | Burda 6829 | New Look 6301 | McCalls 7504

In my Wrap Battle McCalls 6884, Burda 6829, New Look 6301 and McCalls 7504 went head to head. If I were to rank the entries it would be in this order:

  1. Burda 6829
  2. New Look  6301
  3. McCalls 6884
  4. McCalls 7504

Burda is the hands down winner though I do love NL6301 it is a real-faux wrap dress after.The Burda is also a quicker sew since it has less pieces.

The two McCalls patterns were close. 7504 allows for a better fit, but I hate lining while M6884 lacks fit, but it much simpler to sew. Though my issues with M7504 can be fixed if I were to rate them “striaght out the envelope” M6884 wins.

Here’s my likes and dislikes of each:

  2. I loved this series! My favorite is the Burda, which is a bit annoying to me as I own the other three patterns! Ah well, another addition to my pattern stash!

  4. What a great idea! I have a suggestion to make this page more user friendly – captions on your photos and drawings, so we know which one is which when looking at the summary table.
