SEWING

New Sewing Patterns:
McCall's M7537 - Hippie dress
McCall's M7536 - Basic princess seam dress
McCall's M7433 - Archive Collection 1943
McCall's M7500 - Peasant Girl Dress

I also ordered McCall's pattern M7313 but didn't realize it called for a gathered waist. But just in time, a lovely podcast viewer pointed me to the Lady Skater dress pattern by Kitchy-Coo!


I proceeded to make one out of the pink jersey bat fabric I purchased from Fabric.com, and now want to make 20 more!
