|It's a simple pattern really. Just four pieces to assemble the outside and three facing pieces. Bu the third cutting, I figured out that if I repeated the bra part of the empire shirt twice I could get rid of the facing pieces altogether.|
|I spent almost an evening cutting.|
|Started the first three blouses... assembly line style.|
|McCalls 6123 is the pattern. I love the mix and match of the cottons on the cover model's shirt.|
|The zipper for this blouse is 22 inches. I think the pattern specifies it because it can also be made into a dress. I will use a shorter zipper if I decide to make more than these four shirts.|
|It is starting to take shape...|
|I just have to finish the neckline and it will be finished......But I had to take my dog to the Basset Hound Bustle. He is reporting on it for Penny Paws at Dawgblawgger (blog is here ;report will be up soon.). Doesn't it drive you crazy to be 90% finished and to have to leave it down for awhile?|
Finished! Just have to repeat the bodice portion over the next few nights and by the end of the work week, I should have three more blouses.
