First is this fleece jacket for G made using McCalls 5743. Do I even need to mention that the fabric was her choice?
The buttons were, too.
I had to use the walking foot to deal with all those layers of fleece, and marking the pieces was a little challenging but other than that, the pattern came together pretty well.
Next up, is a pencil skirt I made because I couldn't find what I was looking for in the stores. This also came together quickly, even with the zipper (glue baste for the win!). The fabric is a stretch cotton, and it's quite comfy.
Both of these finishes were on my 2013 4th Quarter list of Finish Along projects and I have to say, extrinsic motivation really works for me!
The jacket is super cute and that skirt rocks!!ReplyDelete
