In my last post I stated that McCall’s 5522 blouse is one of those patterns I just can’t get wrong. A week and a half ago I finished a third version inspired by Amanda S.’s and HLT’s reviews. In contrast to my previous review, I made view A with the puffed sleeves in a size 8 with a C cup. I added a thinner version of the ruffle according to Amanda S.’s recommendations, and I also applied covered buttons.
I had planned on making the shirt and pants from New Look 6815 with the same fabrics, but somewhere along the line I decided that I wanted a more feminine, stylized look. So I chose the above McCall’s top and Butterick 5250 high-waisted pants.
Well, here’s the finished look. Please excuse any wrinkles. I took the pictures right after work today.
