I had intended to make McCalls 5466 View C out of this plaid fabric I found at Hancocks. Then I saw the cutting guidelines. I decided matching the plaid on the bias cut skirt would be more of a headache than I had patience (or skill) for. So out went that idea.
I really like this fabric and want to make something out of it this winter. Right now I am torn between two patterns: Simplicity 3835 or BWOF 9-2007-117. I know, I know, two completely different looks! I'm slightly leaning towards making the BWOF dress after seeing the beautiful versions on Pattern Review. However, I'm not sure how much of a headache using plaid for the dress will be. At this point, with grand plans of making a lot of my Holiday gifts this year, I don't really want any time consuming projects. Any thoughts and opinions???
