McCall 6256

 McCall 6256

 I made this 1940 pattern using 1950 vintage fabric.  I found the fabric at a thrift store.  It was a small piece but by careful layout during cutting, I managed to barely squeeze it out of the the 35" width.

 The top has self-covered buttons down the back.

I love the fabric, and while it is a little more pastel than color that I am generally drawn to, I think it will be fun for Spring.

That is a wonderful blouse. The design is so interesting and it is special that you were able to find some vintage fabric to use. It is really pretty.

I adore the neckline, very unsual. Makes the top a classic.
