Description

This is a mash up of several patterns that I have: New Look 6899 for the top (flutter sleeve inspired by an Express shirt I love) and McCalls 6109 for the rest. I gathered the top ever so slightly and gave it a little bit of “blouse.” The waistband could be a little tighter, but I’m generally happy with the result.

Material Notes

Black and white polka dot knit picked up for cheap at Hancock. White knitt
