Description

McCall’s 4769
Damn, when am I going to learn and buy that extra half metre more? Laying up the fabric I realised that I came a bit short on the sleeves (sometimes things are meant to be). Scavenger hunt time for the right contrast colour in my endless pile of leftover fabric, bingo!
The pattern does have pockets, but me being different and wanting more of a 1940’s look, opted for my own draft and voila!
Loving my Bernina particularly for making buttonholes (automatic)..

    I agree with Mary Athley: the contrasting colour looks great on the dress. It will be something I have to keep in mind.
