    Sewing: Simplicity 1429 Pattern Review Part Two

    Simplicity 1429 pattern review part two. Last week I did a review of this pattern, the pants version. This time, the shorter wavy skirt. Time to sew up and get ready for summer. Pattern Review First thing, be sure you cut your pattern correctly. I was so absent minded when I was cutting and cut the two front pieces the same way.

    Pattern Review Sewing pattern review of McCall’s M6751. This pattern is easy – just like it says on the outside of package. The lovely thing about this patten – 4 tops and with different fabric choices, the possibilities for options are great. First, let me discuss pattern B with you. I did make pattern D, too, yet I’ll share that one later. For each pattern I used different fabric, thus different insights. Okay – for the playful keyhole back. I used a stretch double knit…
