Busy sewing and McCalls 5525

This is my first blog entry this month! It's not that I haven't been sewing, I've just been too lazy to blog about it. So far this month I have finished a skirt, made three tops, three dresses and a coat! One of the tops did wind up being a wadder because I didn't pre-shrink the fabric and forgot and put it in the dryer--lesson learned. I did repurchase the fabric and resewed the blouse. What can I say. I really liked it.

I just finished McCalls 5525. This pattern is very popular and has been reviewed at Pattern Review 49 times. I love my version. You can read the review here.



I will be taking it to PR weekend. There's no telling what the weather will be like!
