As I am trying to bust my fabric stash this year (seriously, there is soooo much!), I am attempting to put together some key pieces to make up that I think will get worn over and over.
The new range from McCalls was quite exciting for me. They have some cute, simple pieces and this collar-less shirt dress with pockets (pattern M6520) had my name all over it! I have quite a few meters of a lightweight wool flannel (see top right corner), which doesn't appear to crush which I think will be perfect for this pattern. I also think that this will make a great travel dress for our New York City trip, teamed with warm tights, boots and knitted accessories.
Don't worry, I will post a photo once all completed. Though with Melbourne in a major heat wave at the moment, I will be waiting until it cools off before I start sewing this up!
To keep me inspired in getting back into my sewing the following blogs are ones that I follow at the moment!
