So I decide to make myself a much-needed winter skirt off of McCall’s 3296, in a lovely soft flannel.
The largest size I had was a 10, and according to the back I needed a size 14. But I decided to risk it. Well, risking it didn’t work. No way was I going to fit in a size 10, that was immediately clear as soon as I held the partially completed skirt up to myself. But in the three or so minutes in which I contemplated any way to make it work, I was bitten by the “I Can Make It A Little-Bit-Better” bug. It began with a zipper, expanded munificently to include a vintage hanky, and ended up with no zipper and a pack of perfectly matching vintage bias tape. Oh, those eye-filling blues!
I’m thinking pockets trimmed with hanky, and I’m not quite sure about the bias tape, but trust me, it will be used.
And still no skirt for me. >sigh< But won’t this mistake turn out beautifully? I’m planning on selling this one, BTW.
