I got a pattern (McCalls M512-Hillary Duff collection) I wanted to do a trial run cheap Because the only thing Ive sewn larger than a purse was my costume last year with the help of good ole' moms. This time no mom ... I used a sheet that I got uber cheap, It turned out good enough to wear in public!  Cheesy



The back doesnt gape open like this I guess its the way Im standing...


I plan on making it next in the fabric I originally picked out but Im adding sleeves since its getting chilly here.

Nice job on achieving a good fit with a store bought pattern. I say skip the sleeves and make a fabulous coat to go with it. You're up to it. This one

would look great with it.

Thank you!!! and Thank you!!!

The only reason it fits is because the Hillary Duff collection comes in a size 4...I think it will fall better in another fabric.
I thought about making my own winter coat this year that one is beautiful and SO simmilar to the one Ive had my eye on now for a while! I may have to just tackle that one when my lil girl goes to see her Daddy in Fl.
