Needing some charcoal Kona solid fabric to finish a UFO, I stopped into my local Joann Fabric over the weekend. Of course, they didn't have the right grey fabric but I did find a bargain that I couldn't pass up: McCall's patterns for 70 cents each! Crazy, huh! (The young model on the pattern thinks so too!)
Since the pattern is marked EASY and only requires 4 pattern pieces to make each top, I figure I couldn't go wrong at that ridiculously low price. I even splurged and bought two patterns so that I wouldn't have to trace off the sizes that I wanted. (I really dislike that part of making clothing.)
These two darling Briar Rose prints arrived at my door a couple of weeks ago and will be oh-so-cute for two little redheaded girls that I know.
My plan is to have the blouses ready and waiting when the girls return from a family vacation next week.
The cutting is all done. I wonder how long it will take to sew these up? I'll let you know!
