McCall’s M5388 done in a thrifted blue microsuede with a dragon embroidered on the yolk with red silk and gold metallic thread. A simple pattern but my first time stabilising seams with twill tape, my first time adding interfacing to a pattern in places not called for in the pattern instructions (yolk and upper back), first time adding freehand embroidery onto a pattern piece. Finished in time to wear to my daughter’s birthday party at the bug zoo – see tarantula in second picture.
