- An interesting conversation about choosing the correct pattern size, from the McCall's Pattern Company - under VIDEOS. (RTW sizing vs. Pattern Sizing).
- In addition, if you are ever looking for Size and Ease Chart for all McCall's Pattern Company products (McCall's, Butterick and Vogue) it's located on the Butterick Pattern website
- I've been planning on pad my dressform to make it more like me and pinnable for a very long time now. I've seen lots of pictorials and watched oodles of videos that show multiple methods of padding. This video by Nick Verreos is by far the easiest of all the ones I've seen thus far. All that is needed is shoulder pads, pins and a tape measure. This method is easy peazy and I think it would work quite nicely with a one piece cover added afterwards
- While looking around the net I happened upon this Serger Stitch Cheat Sheet that is very helpful to me so I thought some of you might be interested too
|McCall's 7603 pleated back and button front|
An easy breezy summer top made in cotton lawn. I choose view C and did have to blend two sizes, but other than that this pattern is straight forward and presented no challenges. I might make it again, next time maybe in a challis.
In the meantime I need to find a really easy online photo editor (preferably free). What photo editors do you use???
