Description

Ok peeps, I got tired of making sleepwear, which you all know is fairly easy. I wanted to take a stab at something a little more intricate. I came across this pattern vintage pattern in a thrift store, Mccalls 9550.
I contains a pattern for womans cullotes, a cape and slacks. I decided to tackle the cape. I also found the fabric in a thrift store as well , and I purchased the lining fabric at Walmart. I started the cape by cutting out the pattern and the fabric. A few days later, I decided to start assembling it, unfortunately, I started to come down with a cold and I was starting to think I had gotten in over my head. I realized this when I came to the part of the collar. I decided to put it down.
I came back to it 3 weeks later after I decided not to scrap it. I redone the collar, it went together perfect, I lined it, pressed it. The armholes and the collar all had to be slipped stitched, I added the buttonholes and buttons
I invested in a tailors ham, which turned out to be a wise choice. I pressed it and shaped the collar.
Although, it does have some errors, I am pleased with the end results.
Please feel free , I would love to hear your feedback
