This is McCalls 5375 (now OOP), hooray its finished. This was to be part of the wardrobe mini-swap that’s going on over at Pattern Review, but I didn’t get the other things finished in order to actually enter. Oh well, I am really happy with how it turned out. This is the third time I have made this pattern and I think its a TNT (tried and true ) for me.
- It fits great!
- I love the dark brown top stitching (I used upholstery thread and a top stitching needle)
- the cute pockets with button detail
Things I would change next time
- Forgot to interface the waistband and pocket flaps, would have been good as the are prone to wrinkle
- Find better source for twill fabric, got this at Joannes and it was listed as wrinkle free, but it does wrinkle a lot!
Wore it to a BBQ last night and got compliments. Yay for summer.
Parting shot: my garden looks awesome in early morning light, a poppy bloom.
