I thought I would put aside the beige wool fail project for a while and start something fun and easy. I chose this yellowish/greenish spring tweed with little sequins from my stash. I wanted to make a simple pullover tweed dress for spring.
For the pattern, I chose McCall's 5518 from my stash. It looked like a pretty straight forward pullover tunic dress pattern:
I chose View C but as I was sewing, I forgot to sew in the collar piece. So now the dress has the split neck but not the collar. I drafted my own pocket pieces as the ones in the pattern were too large for my liking. I decorated the top of the pockets with strips of the selvage. I also experimented the with sleeves and without sleeves options:
I decided against sleeves as I thought the boxy sleeves make me look even more dumpy.
