So I’m walking down Madison Avenue the other day, and right across from a rumple-fest at Donna Karan, I spotted an obvious “I Can Sew That.” It looked just like McCall’s 6069, which I had just picked up.
After I took the following photos, I finished view A in two short days..quick and easy! Anyway, back to my walk. So I see a teal dress screaming at me from across the street at Joseph. Goodness knows the price (the store was closed when I walked by.) But it’s on the right stretch of property to be out of my budget! Anyway, check it out:

Looks like I should be able to bang this puppy right out. Buuuuuut…now it’s time to take a closer look:
There’s a seam right where that arrow is pointing. So this is no quickie-dickey pattern-tracer. This is a draft-your-own. Now, there may be a pattern out there, but it’s not sitting in my closet right now, and frankly I have no idea where to find it. I love that detail, and I bet it’ll have a lovely drape on some lucky girl. Just not me…yet.
