An oldie but a goodie, this is McCalls 5662, view F. This first time I made this pattern I made view C and noticed too late that the back was low cut, I like this version much better. Didn't have enough fabric to cut the front and back on the fold so there's a front and back seam but I still like it alot. The fabric is from my Wal-Mart stash, I think it was .50/yd.
Since this fabric is so thin I lined the bodice with my favorite--knit tricot.
I used my double needle on the neckline, sleeve and hem.
I also finished another pair of Butterick 5221, these are black linen. Wanted to show my RTW waistband trick, I put elastic in the back which allows for a snug but comfortable fit.
They're basic black and don't photograph well but you get the idea, this is my third pair so I guess it makes it a TNT pattern.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Vogue pattern giveaway I hope to have them in the mail this week.
