I finally made my first garment for myself! and it fits! I used a DIY Style McCall’s pattern (M5714) and cotton sweatshirt fleece that I found on Fabric.com for under $5 a yard! I learned a lot making this piece, especially about jacket facings and hand sewing. It’s not perfect but I’m pleased with the outcome. It fits well and is warm and comfortable too.
