Thanks goodness it's Friday. So what do everyone have plan this weekend?
My weekend will content a bit of reading and sewing. Tomorrow Project Runway will be have a little marathorn of a couple of the old shows so that will inspire me to get my sewing on. I have been behind on a bit of sewing since I been reading up a storm late.
But, I decided to throw my book down long enough to finally finish my capelet with belt.
This is my first time doing a capelet so bare with me. It worked out great liked how it turned out. I also have to confess I am not a green wearing type of gal just never could get into wearing green but, I gave this fabric a shoot. I wanted to change up my colors a bit but, I did keep in on a dark green so it would look a little black in the dark so I couldn't give up my dark colors way to much lol.
But, here go my capelet and belt pattern is by McCall 5764
Close up on front
Pattern Description: MISSES’ ANDWOMEN’S CAPELETS AND BELT: Loose fitting, unlined, waist or hip length capelet has collar variations and front buttonhole and button closures; capelets C, D have belt and faced openings and back loop for belt; capelet D has optional topstitching on collar.
Pattern Sizing:(18W-20W-22W-24W) I used the 22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yep somewhat I did a lot of changes compared to the one on the envelope
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, they was so so what easy as I went I just flow with it on my own.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Didn't have any dislikes at all
Fabric Used: Used a stretch satin fabric that had these white pinstripe decor going down the fabric to give it that stretchy-ness to it. Also used white and green cotton for the inside lining to the open part of the capelet and also used that same fabric for the belt to give it that reverse type thing to the belt so that means there isn't a right or wrong when it comes to the belt. I also have 3 dark green buttons size 1 1/2 for closure :)
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't make the button holes in the front for the belt to loop though. I wanted my belt to come around the capelet to give it more closure to where my arms are. I also only did 3 buttons but, I made 4 button holes
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yeah I will sew this again but, I will give it a try in sewing it in denim.
Conclusion: I like how this turned out it worked up great I just did a little alterations to it to make it more a little more of me when it comes to the capelet. I like that it's green never really wear green so this worked out great.
So there you have it my latest sewing project still no crocheting projects to report. Hoping to get back into my crocheting soon. :) But, until then have some sewing projects that I want to start on this weekend. Or at least start cutting out. I have plans for me 3 shirts and some tan jeans. :)Wish me luck.
Hope everyone have a great weekend everyone take care. Thanks for stopping by. :)
