So, I have been m.i.a for a few weeks eh? I have been sewing. I just have had wadder after wadder, and it was becoming a wee bit irritating, to say in the least...I just didn't want to bore my dear readers with the irritation of my sewing mishaps. However, I'm back! And back with a F.O to show for it, oh yeah!
|Thanks to the lovely Erica B. for linking where she purchased her Jessica Simpson wedges...I had|
to cop a pair for myself!
During my little
three week hiatus, I got to thinking about the garments that I sew. It's nothing like a little time to reflect, right? Well, I got to thinking, while I love my pretty dresses. I just don't get to where those as often.
During the week I am in normally in chill mode, and really do not have/ or feel like wearing a dress, unless it's a maxi dress! Which is next on my list of garments to make(my mission maxi dress pattern finally came, oh yeah!) Oh, I almost forgot that I was reviewing M5391 LOL! it has totally been one of those days, but back to the review.. This is labeled as easy from McCall's, I will have to agree to disagree lol! Simply because there are ,or should I say for me; to many adjustments needed to get the shorts somewhat wearable...
For starters, there was way to much ease in this pattern. I would definitely suggest making a muslin, yes, the forbidden word to some lol! I had to go down 2" on the hips and I should have went down a size on the waist, so that a belt wouldn't be needed. Also, the waistband was much shorter than the waist, had to cut out another waistband and add to it, ugh! And let's not mention that low back,(remember crack is whack, no really it is lol) I really could have used a full seat adjustment. It's not bad by any means; however, it could be better!
Oh yeah changed shoes had to take off my Jessica Simpson wedges and
put on my Gentle soul wedges Kenneth Cole! Had too much running around
to do with my boys....
I also added, per reading PFRP: added stay to the slanted pockets, I didn't add twill tape to the waistline; however,
Well, ladies that's all for now! I'm not sure if I will start on my maxi or make another pair of shorts, but I do know that we have a long weekend coming up, and plan to take full advantage! As always be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
