Winning Combination for the Stash Busting Challenge
Hey Guys, I just wanted to make a quick post today as I’m getting ready to run out the door to work.
I don’t think it comes as much of a surprise to you, but the taupish polka dot fabric was the clear winner which will be made in my Quaker Oats Pattern (by McCalls):
This was a huge surprise to me actually! I thought you guys would have picked the white organza but that combination was in the last place. heh I’m glad you guys love this pattern as much as I do.
I was going to cut out my muslin last night after tracing the patterns, but I got started late and was only able to trace off two of the pattern pieces:
This is the front bodice and the side front. Aren’t they funky shapes? Check out that sleeve which has the hem already built-in and marked.
I had NO IDEA how many pattern pieces are involved!!!
This is after I forgot I had two more pattern pieces sitting on my ironing board.
I think I’m going to be lucky if I’m able to cut out my muslin tonight after tracing all of the pieces out. I think I’ll only be able to do the bodice tonight, and perhaps the skirt tomorrow night. But wish me luck! :)
