McCall's M6827, View C for the body
View A for the sleeve
Polyester Knit Floral from Vogue Fabrics
The top was easy to construct. For the sleeves, I machine basted the sleeve front to the back. Then, added clear elastic with another basting stitch. To put the sleeve together for good, I serged over the elastic and basting stitches. All hems were coverstitched and the neckline is fold-over elastic.

I had a wonderful Mother's Day with my kids. I got a fancy new camera lens that I had to try, so I took this picture of my sewing room yesterday. My latest leg of my "fitting journey" has been drafting a moulage and sloper from Kenneth King's CD books. They are WONDERFUL! The sleeve draft was the best fitting sleeve I have ever made. The moulage and sloper reflect my lop-sided body. I will report and show more later.......
