Whew... my heart just jumped a little to be able to host some of my favorite bloggers. Blog dream come true... no lie.
Okay, now to my
McCall's 6328). But, I did not really know I didn't like McCall's patterns until this one, because it was my first one ever, and I was frustrated on numerous occasions (directions/diagrams). I'm used to sewing being rather easy and enjoyable, not something I have to take breaks from. However, I suppose you could say I learned a lot. Originally, I was planning on making the Iris pattern by Colette, but I didn't realize I needed an invisible zipper foot, and the timing just didn't work out finishing that garment, ordering one, and coinciding with my family vacay (ah, isn't the beach so pretty).
Now, would I make some modifications if I ever make these ever again...? Yes. I would. I would do just a ruffle on the front and stop at the side seams and ignore the back flounce, and I would make them just slightly longer in length. The shorts pattern had several different optional views that I could go with, so maybe, if I ever REALLY feel like it, I will try them ONE more time...
