I’ll admit, this weekend I spread myself thin, but I did manage to make it into the sewing room to work a bit on McCall 5713… and now I think I don’t care for it. I washed the material prior to sewing (to make sure that it didn’t shrink after wearing). Doing this gave it an incredible amount of ‘cling’ so not only has it been difficult to work with, but when I tried the cardigan on, it seems to have an unusual fit (because it sticks to my clothes). Even though I like the print and the fabric in general, I just don’t think I care for it with this pattern – I think it seems to age me. I’m going to forge ahead and work on the neck band and seams to finish this cardigan off and then I’ll play with what clothing might work well with it to make it a bit more youthful.
