McCall's 6322: This is a fun little pattern, especially with the variety of cute coordinating fabrics one can find in the Quilter's Cottons section of the fabric store. Eyelet trim (yay! dollar store!) was the perfect accent.

Oh, very cute! I've been eyeing that pattern for some time now. Do you have any tips for making it? Did you do any alterations?
I love that striped fabric! The zipper goes really well with it. Great score with the dollar store trim!

Really simple pattern, easy to do. I did stray from the instructions (nothing new there), however, and assembled the front and back before sewing the side seams rather than assembling the bodice and skirt and then attaching the two, so that I could take in the sides where necessary for a slightly more fitted look (if I just go by what fits me in the bust, I wind up swimming everywhere else...) I did leave it a little loose, though, since it's A-Line style. This was View C. I only had chunky jacket zippers on hand, but I like the look of it.

Thank you so much! I have a really hard time fitting patterns to me but this one's so cute it might be worth the hassle and fabric Smiley Thanks for the inspiration and review!
