McCall's - 7046 Misses' Tops and Dresses
I made another of these rushed tops, this time with elbow length sleeves. This polyester knit didn't have as much stretch as my last fabric and is pretty stiff, so I cut it out a bit bigger than a stretchier knit would require.

Simplicity - 1260 Misses' Nightgown in Three Lengths, Pajamas & Slippers

New Look - 6816 Misses Separates
Pattern includes pants and a top with a few variations. I'm reviewing just the pants. This is my third pair of pants I've sewn (that aren't massive palazzo pants). I wish I had used this pattern first! If you got a big booty, big hips, and thick thighs, this is a very friendly pattern. I cut a... more...
