Who doesn’t need more polka-dots in their life?
I used my old stand-by, McCalls 5929, but added a long, draped bow that was patterned after an old tank top. I just took out the seam on that one and traced it on my fabric – worked like a charm! The McCalls pattern already has a Y- front shape to the neckline, so it was easy to incorporate this feature. I also made the shirt about 3 inches longer, so that I could belt it up for a different shape than my previous incarnations of this pattern.
