Description

McCalls 6696 view B with a cotton seersucker gingham.

I cut the size 10 with a C cup. It could have used more definition in the top so perhaps the D would have helped. I also took 2 inches of back fullness out and there was still plenty so I’m glad I did. I think a lighter weight fabric would have been better too. Should have added belt loops because it needs a belt.

The instructions were super easy to follow. The skirt seems fuller than the picture/ diagram and I would be happy with less fullness.

I used pearl snaps- size 16— from Snap Source again. I love them and they were super easy to put on. Never buttoning again !

Sorry I can’t get a better picture ! It is very comfortable though. I seem to reach for it a lot this summer. And pockets are always a must !
