Fall for Cotton Sewalong

Fall for Cotton

I’ve missed out on a bunch of sewalongs this summer as various physical ailments have conspired to keep me away from my sewing machine. However, I’m sure (knock-on-wood!) that I’ll be able to participate in the Fall for Cotton sewalong next month, hosted by Rochelle of Lucky Lucille and Tasha of By Gum, By Golly. When I first heard of the sewalong, where the challenge is to use all cotton to sew a vintage style garment, I immediately thought of McCall’s 5088 from 1976, a pattern that my mom and her sister purchased new and both sewed outfits from it.

I already picked up some quilting weight cotton in a fun Southwestern print that will be the skirt and a heavier weight that will be the pants. And oh shucks, I’ll need to go fabric shopping again because I want to do the full ensemble of top and shirt as well!

  1. That’s a great pattern, and I love that it’s been used already by both your mom and your aunt! Good luck with your outfit!

  2. Great fabric. Can’t wait to see the finished product. Do your mom & aunt still have the clothes they made using the pattern? Or some photos?

      They definitely don’t have the clothes and I don’t think they have any photos. But next time I’m home I’ll have to dig through my mom’s oldest photo albums to see if I can find some!
