Happy flowers print - one more McCall's 7542 with rich sleeves
I loved wearing my pink flowery dramatic sleeve last week. And even if I first thought of my initial fabric as a muslin fabric since I got it cheap I realized batiste is so great and lovely to wear so I bought 2 more similar fabric in flower prints. One of them I realized later that is not really to my liking but this one I cut and sew right away. Here is another McCall's 7542 - view B - size 6 for all except the upper body and sleeve.
View D is a bit more comfortable to wear but I liked the extra flounces on view B so I did one more on that with 2 small changes :
- skipped the back seam - I don't really feel I need it!
- doubled the sleeve flounce so there is no hem showing. The fabric is very light and I didn't feel the draping losing much but the look is so much neater. Love it like this. I had 2m of fabric for this and I hardly had a scrap left in the end.
I am also trying to clean up my sewing room sashes and this are so patterns I will probably never use so if anyone is interested in any let me know.
