I stole my mom's idea to re-read all the Agatha Christie novels. I am limited by the library to only 5 books (!) until my card is 1 month old, so I checked out a 5-in-1 Miss Marple and a 3-in-1 Poirot. Then I forced Andrew to watch a Miss Marple on Netflix, which only is partial payback for forcing me to go watch Transformers 3 in 3-D. Worst movie ever!
|My pattern, from 1966.|
So now he has been calling me Miss Marple, since I am an old person at heart and like to do old people-y things. He talked me into a Miss Marple-like plaid in pink and brown. Oh, it's anti pill polar fleece. Thus, I present to you, the Miss Marple Robe/House coat.
Pattern: Mccalls 8560 from 1966. It's nice that McCalls dates their own patterns.
Fabric: Anti-pill polar fleece in a light pink and brown plaid
Notions: For some reason I already had two spools of light pink thread and I used two left over buttons from a jacket I made for my mom. Poor mom; I was too new to sewing and didn't take ease into account, so it turned out gigantic.
Time: Maybe 3-4 hours, I busted out the whole thing yesterday.
I made no attempts to line up the plaid...
On to curtains for the bathroom, a shower curtain and a closet curtain. I ended up buying the green, blue and grey circles on the white background. It should look really nice!
