Squee! Today's eye candy, McCall 1541, thrilled me so much when I spotted it on the Vintage Wiki that I had to search it out from Jen at Mom's Patterns and make it mine. The rose applique! The leaves! The band! The felt hat!
The pattern calls for 72" wide felt, and I'm not sure how I feel about the prospect of a felt skirt. Will it be charmingly retro, or -- even in non-acrylic felt -- will it evoke kindergarten cutouts? Has anyone done any apparel sewing with felt lately? Do tell!
