Trying out a new pattern for fit, so I sewed it up in a free fabric I had on hand. What a nightmare this pink waffle garbage was. It has no stability at all. The neckline stretched out of shape, and even with hem tape the hem is wavy. End result–a terrible looking garment that doesn’t even work as a fitter because of the uncertain amount of stretch.
Second try, from some navy blue knit. Another free piece of fabric. I don’t know exactly what it is–it’s lightly brushed on the inside. No problems with this fabric. I only had a yard, so I had to add cuffs to get more length on the sleeves.
I think I’m ready to cut the “for real” fabric.
Pattern is McCalls 6964.
