Made by a Fabricista: 2 Hour Cold Shoulder & Palazzo Set


Spring is here!! Although here is Pennsylvania it’s hard to believe with all the snow and coldness outside. But we’re going to pretend or let’s just say we’re getting ready. McCall’s M7757 is going to be the it pattern, I can feel it in my bones. The pattern is so cute, it shows of the shoulders and it’s an easy make, those are all the qualities that will make it a go-to pattern this spring.


I ordered this gorgeous fabric more than two months ago and it was supposed to be for my February post on the blog. I waited until the last moment to open the package and when I did it totally wasn’t what I expected in structure and weight. I thought the fabric was more like a twill or more structured Sateen. I had plans on making a pant suit with this fabric. So, I had to put it on hold until I could figure out what to make with it.

The print is fantastic (Mori calls it a galaxy print) and I thought about making myself a pair of fancy pj’s or a maxi dress for Mori but then comes along the release of the new spring patterns from McCalls’ and I chose McCall’s M7757. 

This is an outfit can be put together in under 2 hours, giving you plenty of time to make more than one.

The Palazzo pants are super wide. Mori is 5'7 and I had to add 3 inches to the length so that she could wear heels with the pants. The original length is good for flat sandals. 

    
                


            Here are a few great options if you want to make a bold statement!         






 


I will definitely be making a few more of these for Mori, I just have to stock up on elastic!
Have a great day Peeps and as always it's been a blast to share my work with you.
Don't forget to stop by and visit me sometime!
