My weekend with Patterns.
As a tween, I used to go to the fabric store with my sister. I hated being there. There is nothing more boring than watching your sister flip through a thick, oversized McCall's pattern book and then see her reach for the Simplicity one. ugh.
Fast forward many years...I've never liked clothing patterns, but 2 weeks ago, my daughter & I were in the fabric store.
I was feeling invincible.
We wanted a shrug &
a Halloween costume for my other daughter (15 year old).
(Alice, but yes, in the larger version, looks simple enough
- thought we could tweak it a little.)
The shrug proved to be a little more complicated than I thought. I made 2 trial ones, they went together quick, but the sleeves weren't even close to the same size as the arm holes.
No sleeves. Just made the shoulder part a little wider.
She wanted straps too, to "hold it up".
I decided not to tackle the Alice costume this year.
That's why they have all of those Halloween stores,
so you can buy $9.99 wings & be a black fairy, right?
