Date Night Look!
This is McCall's 6436, view D. The description says: Loose fitting, front and back darts and front band. View D: Collar, collar band and pleated two piece sleeve.
The most awesome thing about this pattern is that it's sized based on bra cup size. I used the size 14 and the D cup. Ladies, you know what that means, don't you? No FBAs! And it has horizontal bust darts that I prefer.
I didn't have to lengthen because I made this shirt with the intention of wearing it tucked with this high-waist skirt. And when I wear it with pants, it'll be untucked. I found this fabric at Hancock. It's a pink and black gingham shantung. It's a poly, but I think it's great. I'm not even a pink kinda girl, but this fabric called out to me.
And I also found the sleeves to be the right length even though I'm wearing them rolled up. Notice that I used a black silk dupioni for the cuffs. This was unintentional. I didn't buy enough fabric to allow for matching the pattern and ran out. When I returned to the store, of course it was no where to be found. There was no way I was scrapping this project, so I just went with black. It was a "Tim Gunn/Make it work!" moment. I didn't use the instructions at all, so I can't tell you anything about them. I've made quite a few button front shirts, so I just went for it.ASOS; shoes: Steve Madden; bag: Urban Expressions; Belt: Calvin Klein (old); Cape: Vogue 2924
