McCall 4764

My latest project is finally done. I whipped it up today. I been had it all cut out but, finally since I don't have school on my mind I was able to get it finished. Oh congrats to me. I was taking a small CNA class while I was taking up my Radiologist classes. I took my state examine test yesterday and I passed so I am a CNA I am waiting for my name to pop up on the CNA list for the state. That is proof that I am a CNA and can work in any health care place. I wanted to do this while I finished up school for Radiologist. YAY ME.

Ok no with the outfit I made for Nesa.

McCalls 4764



Close up on shirt

Close up on skirt

I did the skirt with the 2 tiers and a shirt from this same pattern.

I will put my review in as well.

Pattern Description: 2 tier skirt with a shirt

Pattern Sizing: the skirt is a size 7 and the shirt is a 8

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? some what I changed the pattern a bit.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes very easy

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I didn't have any dislikes. I liked the 2 tier on the skirt first time doing a 2 tier.

Fabric Used: cotton and satin ribbon for the bottom of the shirt. Ribbon 1 1/2

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Did the double tier but, made the top part of the tier in a shorter way then what the pattern asked for. Did elastic in the waist band of the skirt since my daughter is smaller in the waist.

For the shirt didn't do the side ties since my daughter has a fuller belly it didn't look right. Also added ribbon to the bottom of the shirt to give it a bit of design.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, would sew it again in a different fabric. I do recommend

Conclusion: Loved how it turned out my daughter loves the sunflower fabric I that was used. Great for a little girl.

Also I have some upcoming projects that I want to sew for myself.

I need to buy some fabric so I can make me a couple of work srubs for when I go find me a CNA job.

But, I want to make these that is in this picture.
Some gauchos and a wrap shirt the pattern shows a dress but, I wasn't going to make the dress I was going to make the shirt part of the dress I will figure it out.


I hope everyone is doing great I am hanging in there trying to keep my hobbies in mind so I want go crazy.

Everyone have a great week take care. :)

Too cute and congratulations to you on your CNA, you go girl. You're awesome I think I sewed two outfits the entire time I was in school but I was working two jobs and going to school part time so that didn't leave much time for breathing let alone any sewing.
