8-16 with cup sizing. I cut a 14D
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I used the view with the "tail" but made it sleeveless.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I hadn't done side vents before and it was not intimidating at all. I did not do the thread chain for closure I used black elastic cord
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to dislike. I'm curious as to how the sleeve will fit though. It looks like it's pulling on the models.
I am confused as to why McCalls only included fabric requirements for 45". This voile was 54" and I had one yard of it.
Cotton voile from FabricMart. Ordered last summer sometime...
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1/2" narrow shoulder adjustment. 3/4" swayback adjustment.
I wasn't going to do the vents but the size 14 has a 43" hip and mine are 44". Oops. Should've graded to a 16 there. The vents were an afterthought to "fix" this.
Used the view with the longer back but no sleeves.
Used white bias binding.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Omg yes! I will have several tees, tanks and tunics from this pattern for the summer. It went together very well and in about 2 hours or so.
L. O. V. E. I cannot wait for warmth!!! It's a single degree in Minneapolis today (and I had to dig out wrinkled shorts!).
