I found myself this past weekend with a whole day of sewing....I was so excited to get started on a fall wardrobe. I chose this McCall's 5702 dress jumper that had a 9 piece pattern but seemed OK for me to tackle. But maddeningly after 6 hours of sewing when I tried on the jumper it fell right off me. The sleeves and bodice were not the correct size even though I cut out to my measurements. Those sleeves were a pain to fit in as the wool was thick so there was no way to take out all those seams without the wool coming apart. I chose this pattern for the pockets so after I threw the jumper across my sewing room floor, I calmed down (glass of wine) & cut off the top & made into a skirt.
I used this soft thick wool that I had leftover from my crazy cape making nights a couple of years ago.
For the turtleneck I used this off white Ponte de Roma knit & the oh so easy Burda pattern
that I have made a couple times.
Here I am happier the next day going to work...not quite the jumper I planned for our rainy cold days but I like this skirt with the big pockets. Do you try & save some of your epic fail sewing projects? If so....send me a link I would love to see how you turned your projects around!
Sew you later!
