Review: McCall's 7688 | The Ruffle Sweatshirt!

11:00 AM

I love when a spin is put on basic things that you can wear everyday to make them a little more special.
Like adding ruffles to a sweatshirt. Ruffles on a sweatshirt is way cooler than say, on a cotton button down. This sweatshirt can be washed and dried and tossed on without ever seeing the iron again. You can just put it on and go. 
This is McCall's 7688, view B. My fabric is an Ivory and Silver Terry Fabric with Lurex that I found at Hobby Lobby.
I cut the size medium. This top is loose fitting with drop shoulders. 
Ruffles are sewn to the princess line of the top and also set in the sleeve seam.
I finished the ruffles with a serger stitch because this fabric shreds! I was covered in terry fibers while sewing. 
I didn't care for the suggested way to sew on the flounce. So I made a quick video showing how I sewed mine on.

Here is an up close look at the neckline.
I really like this sweatshirt, a lot. I wore it out yesterday and I was so happy I didn't get in bagging or stretching. That was one of my main concerns with the fabric. It held up well and I can't wait to wear it again!
