I finished McCalls 5450 (stitch and save) and I cannot for the life of me figure out how it is supposed to tie.
The pattern envelope doesn't show any exposed ties, which is why I choose this view but I'm baffled as to how this is accomplished, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The few reviews I found on pattern review showed it tied in the back and I guess this works but it's not the look I was hoping for, I'm sure it's something simple that I'm missing so I hope blog land can help me out.
The sleeves were circus like huge, I probably removed at least 6-8 inches and there's still a decent amount of flounce. Other than not being able to tie it I'm really happy with the way this turned out, the fabric is really easy to work with and I love the colors.
Another pair of Butterick 5222, in brown to wear with the untieable top, I think I can officially call this my TNT pants pattern.
The pattern is not lined but I think pants are so much more comfortable if they are so these and any other's that I make will be lined. I can't remember where/when I purchased this lining but it's silky soft.
