McCalls 6751 View B, Size M. My only adjustment was my standard 1/2 inch forward shoulder. This (flowy) shapeless front silouette is new for me, and is taking some getting used to. It might have helped if my baby hem across the front and around the back keyhole layed a little flatter. I can live with the front, but the puckering was bad in the back. I ended up tearing out the stitches from the bottom/sides of the keyhole and hand stitching them like a blind hem from the inside. I think it lays much better now.
I used my serger to finish all the edges, it made a great edge to fold over twice for hemming. Otherwise, with the miles of unending baby hem on this version, I’d have torn out my hair.
There are 3 other back variations for this pattern, and I plan to make one (at least) of each.
The fabric is a gauze-like weave. Very light cotton silk blend.
