Most ambitious project yet. Made from black cotton sateen (big mistake as it picks up hairs/ fluff like nobody’s business! Bad news at home where we have 3 dogs and 1 cat!), with grey leapardskin satin lining (originally meant to be for pyjamas I think!)
Made following the McCalls 5525 – All details are from view E, but the length of D
Although this has loads of detail, and loads of pattern pieces (ewww), it was actually OK to put together. Again though, I can’t take credit for it all, as this was made during my sewing class. Seriously I need to steal Judi, my teacher and take her home with me when I leave Australia, I will be lost without her.
NB. The pattern for the back yoke was actually cut wrong, so I ended up cutting the fabric wrong so it’s a little wonky. I also found pressing the front a challenge so am considering taking it to the dry cleaners.
