Pattern Review 2/28/13 8:31 PM
No Pattern Used - Napkins Reversible napkins
Pattern Description: Super duper simple napkins from vintage bed sheets. Pattern Sizing: I cut squares 15 inches across, and used a 3/8" seam allowance.

McCall's - 3830 Misses' straight skirts
Pattern Description: Straight skirt in five lengths. Pattern Sizing: 6-22, 6-12 in my envelope. I made a 12 but ended up taking it in; I could have probably made a 10 (tapering to 8 at the waist).
