I had a question about the inside zippered pocket as I could not tell from the pattern exactly how she did it. we wrote back and forth and finally I went ahead as I had previously done them.
Then she mentioned another file I should have had and sent it to me,. it all worked out and I like her and the pattern and the attention she gave me.
Around the top is a drawstring to cinch it up alittle or a lot or not at all. Your choice.
I put a tiny bit of the outside fabric around the bottom of the lining pieces because I thought it was too short. Turns out when I had it together it was not too short, so I ended up pulling the extra fabric on the top of the lining to the outside -making it a couple inches taller. I kind of like the "happy mistake" as George calls it.
It seems like every time I make something=no matter how hard I try to do it perfect and follow the pattern instructions= I make a few alterations, no pun intended.
The fabrics are Moda on the outside and free Spirit on the inside.
These are McCall's patterns I think but called Sweet seams and really simple and easy to follow and on paper not the brown flimsey tissue paper.
