This was McCalls 6069, and my first real project with a knit.
Here is what I learned.
1. If you sew with a super stretchy knit, your garment will be really large.
2. Your sewing machine hates knits, unless you have it teamed up with a walking foot.
3. Rolled hems are not appropriate for just anything.
4. Some projects can only be saved with a belt.
I had my stripes all matched, and did a try on and the top was really huge. After I took it in, my stripes no longer matched, but I wasn't showing side boob. I consider it a win. I also did not want to use the facings on the arms, so I rolled the hems. I'm still mixed on that.
Overall, I will wear the dress because it is super comfortable. I can't say it was the pattern's fault because I really deviated on fabric choices and directions.
And yes, sometimes I do brush my hair. Just not tonight!
I should have some birdie sling and crazy quilt updates soon.
