Pattern B5704 See & Sew @mccallpatterncompany
I used my new Singer Fashion Mate sewing machine @singersewingcompany for the first time and was surprised and pleased by this machine. Worked like a dream right out of the box.
This is cuddly wear for maybe cooler days. Out here in California, it's still warm, but when that cold day comes, I'm ready for it! This soft flannel made me think of blue skies and clouds and cozy afternoon naps. When I was a young lady and would visit my mom, before I slept she would cover me with a blue comforter spotted with dreamy clouds. That sweet, simple action made me feel safe and loved.
This pattern attracted me because of the hoodie and front pocket. When I sleep I like my head and shoulders to be warm but I like my legs to feel cold and unencumbered. I changed the pajama pants to be shorts and took the neck facing out and replaced it with a bias faced neckline. As I was sewing this, I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice if patterns included a heads-up notation about when to pink or overlock edges?"
