I made this awesome shirt in one day (with many breaks).
I picked up this McCall's pattern Saturday at Hancock's for $0.99 and was anxious to start on it. I didn't really have any fabric in mind to use but then when digging through my stash I knew instantly.
I was stressed out at first because the pattern calls for 1.25 yards of fabric. I Frankenstein-ed two half yards and it worked perfectly! I used the gray mushroom for pieces 3 & 5 which are the main part of the shirt. They fit so perfect on the half yard! Then for the green I used pieces 1, 2, 4 & 6. The yoke, sleeves, and pockets.
I really love every bit of this fabric so I took extreme caution and time with this one. I pressed and re-pressed and double checked everything before I did it.
The pattern was wonderful. It walked me through each step and I didn't have any real problems. No complaints from me! I plan on making this cute shirt again, maybe in long sleeves.
Miss K loves the pockets!
Can I fit in it? Please? It's everything I love! Whimsical, mushrooms, green..... :-)
The fabric rocks. I got it from Fabric.com
They have the Gray fabric in Red and the green in a yellow. Those would be cute like this too!
Woodland Toadstool Houses Grey is the main part of mine
Woodland Toadstool Dots Olive is the green fabric. Both 100% cotton.
