Tribal Print McCalls:)

"First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth."

"For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all-the testimony that was given at just the right time."

1 Timothy 2:1-5

     Happy Monday all!:) My latest McCalls 6886 is a wearable muslin in a cotton knit that I started for my American Flag Dress. P.S. I  was picked as one of the three winners in the random draw! Yay! I received a free pattern from Dressy Talk Patterns!:)

I used this particular fabric because it had a horizontal print. I quickly sewed it together using a basting stitch to check the fit and then set is aside until my flag dress was done.

 I initially intended to dye it since I thought the white & black was a little boring. I've worn it so much already though & the print is really growing on me! I love the fit of it (perfect length & not too tight, I think I must have used a slightly smaller seam allowance). I did a sway-back adjustment using Nancy Zieman's "slide & pivot" method. I'm already planning another version in a daisy print (bought it at the same time as this black and white tribal print (or aztec print??). I'm going to adjust it a tiny more to make it fit even better at the lower back.

My sewing machine pendant Dan bought for me for Mother's Day last year:)

  I wish I would have taken more care to ensure the print lined up on the sides, lol. I was mostly concerned that the stripes on my Flag Dress would line up alright on the sides & they did!:) Overall I love this dress!:) Have a great week everyone!
