If I make a pattern and it's not good enough or good at all, I can't leave it alone, I have to MASTER the pattern. It will sit in the drawer and mock me until I get it out and re-size refit, refine it until I get it right. This McCall's 5787 pattern I made back in 2011 was ok, a little to big in the shoulders and a little to tight around my hips. So I decided it needed to be redone and fit for ME!
McCall's 5787 Pattern
Too big in the shoulders, tight across the chest, hips a little snug.
The top looks a lot better on my dress form.
Remade the pattern in this fabric I had laying around. I really like it now, the fit is perfect! The only problem is that the kids say this top looks like a mugged it from a CLOWN!
I am working on a dress now, I am using Simplicity 1797. I am using a orange floral print sheet as a muslin, I found a beautiful floral print drape set. I am thinking this is going to be sooooooo cute. More soon.
Until next time.....
