So I guess my son found a way to get into the fridge while no one was looking and decided he wanted some melon 🙂 lol this happen just before we moved but I forgot to post it.
Oh! look what I found.
Wonder how I get it open?
HHHMMM, let me think this over….
Still not working….
Okay, how about this way!!!
He is so cute!
Okay now to the pattern review: McCalls 5705
I was really curious about this pattern so I gave it a go. I have mixed reactions about so here it goes.
Fabric: Modal-Lycra Jersey – Cocoa so soft and wonderful
Modifications: Well, I will start by telling you what I did not like and then I how I changed it. The first thing is that it is really short, so I added length to the skirt part and then did a 2″ wide hem on my coverstitch because I did not want elastic on the hem as suggested in the pattern.
Then I realized once I had already done the hood/shawl part of the dress that the wrong side of the fabric is what shows when you wear it over the shoulders instead of as a hood. Well, I probably should have paid more attention to that before I had gotten that far but I didnt so then I was just irritated that the wrong side would be showing (well not a big deal since the fabric is pretty close on both sides)
Never the less I knew I would NEVER wear it as a hood (it looks like the virgin mary when it’s on) so I decided to do a wide 2″ hem on the hood/shawl thing as well.
Now! I did like the way the elastic is attached using the seam as a casing and I like the style of it, it’s really comfy. I think I may still work with it but over not impressed with the construction method used by McCalls, if I try it again I will put it together my own way.
