The Wannabe Craftster

The Highs and Lows of a Fashionista and Craftster Wannabe

“Progress” on McCalls 5654

I toyed with the idea of naming this post “Sunday-Go-To-Meetin’-Pleatin'”, but even I found that to be too hokey.  The fabric is a little meet-me-in-the-churchyard, but I wanted an inexpensive easy print to work on, and at the time I was happier with it than I was after I cut it out.  Hey, at least it isn’t floral, which is what most dresses in my closet were before the big purge.  Anyway, here it is in all its glory plus some seriously shoddy pleating and basting.  I know.  I know.  Feast your eyes.

Help!  I\'m pleating!

Oh, and I’m making Figure B.

Wish me luck.  I’m onto pockets now.
