I am teaching myself how to sew and I found McCall's M5562 really easy to make. I made the shirt and shorts. DD is a stocky build and all the other patterns I tried had the neck opening too large, I guess from having to go up a size. This worked beautifully. I did have some problems with the elastic in the back not being tight enough. That was all me. It was the first time I tried elastic that didn't go all the way around and my elastic always seems to be a bit big.
