McCalls M6436 Sleeveless Version A
I am still working on the huge-pocketed black lawn skirt but haven't had much time to spend sewing. Also, I had a couple of hiccups with it - will explain in another post - so it's been taking longer than expected.
In the meantime I thought I would make a post on my sleeveless version of M6436, which I made just before Easter. It's in the same Liberty Pamela Judith lawn as the long-sleeved version I made, but in the blue colour way instead of the brown. I really like this colour.
This is version A but without the shoulder tabs. I made this in a size 8, even though my measurements should really put me in at least a size 10, maybe a 12, but I don't like too much ease. By nature of the style, this shirt does have a lot of ease. For a closer-fitting shirt Vogue 8772 would be a good shirt to go for.
The buttons are vintage 1940's turquoise ones, and the bias binding on the armhole edges is a lovely vibrant bright green. This version has pleated pockets and flaps.
