McCalls 5042 – we are through!

Through I tell you.





You promised me simple, stylish summer dresses, and what did you deliver……


Grief I tell you!

What with your ill drafted pattern pieces. And the craziest fitting skirt I’ve ever come across. And lets not mention the fitting issues up the wazoo around the waist!

Don’t think I didn’t hear you sniggering in the corner!

And I know just what you’re going to say…

“well…you’re hardly the one to talk are you…not exactly the perfect shape are we?!?!”

…but your little snidey comments don’t cut the mustard, oh no!  I’ve made two of you now.  Nothing you can say can phase me, Mister!

And, despite your best efforts to sabotage my sewing, I. have. finished. the Libery print dress.  So there!

I’ve even given it a really cute name.

All I need is some sunshine in which to photograph it and I’ll show the world that I’m tougher than you.

And you, my fiendish, fabric-fouling friend, are off to the recycling.

So there! Again!

  1. Oh no, what a shame 🙁 Does make me wonder sometimes if they actually test the patterns….

  2. Doesn’t sound like it was a lot of fun 🙁
    However I bet it looks amazing on you and I love the colors of you liberty fabric.

      It’s a bear of a pattern – at least I think so. The dress has turned out ok though. Pictures at the weekend I hope!

  3. Oh no. Hate hate hate that pattern for you. Oh, and I have to say I would bin the darn thing so that it doesn’t taint any other otherwise perfectly useful thing in its recycled future :o)

      I now have visions of it sitting in the recycling bin whispering to the magazines…”go on…show her pictures of moo moos! Tell her they’re in this season. You know you want to!” Evil pattern!
