This is a quick look today because I am swamped at work. Q4 is in full swing, and with these super shopping days like Green Monday and things I’ve never heard of I have got to get down to business!
I hope you all had a great weekend, we drove out to the Bay Area (which is where we are both from) and visited with family. It was awesome. Baby got to play with his cousins, and Momma & Daddy got to eat their weight in Tacos from the Taco Truck.
Today I have a quick look for you using (I know, I know) McCalls 6886! I am not lying when I say this is a tried and true dress pattern that will stay at the front of my pattern boxes for years.
I created the cape using the bodice and back pattern pieces of the dress, and then sewed it like a facing to the dress. This was tricky to get right since the finished edges needed to be facing outward, it was a total mind game (insert f bomb because your brain wants to do what it knows.. right sides together lol).
Have a great week! I just got a new serger and I’m off to change my knit fabric life! LOL
