Sorry for the massive delay in between posts. Life in Tokyo doesn't give me much time to breathe let alone sew.
Before I am allowed to buy any new fabric, I have to use what I have. I have had this fabric my grandma gave me for a long time and when this pattern came out (McCall's 6396):
I set aside the fabric for it. Life has a way of getting in the way of sewing projects, so it sat. Today was the beginning of my 2 day mini vacation so I decided to make it.
First it's marked "EASY" and in my opinion it's not easy. There are a lot of pieces and lining to make. In addition, my zipper doesn't look great and I am not sure if I needed to but I had to put a pleat the back. Also, the bust is a little large even though I used the A/B cup option. A cups might find this a bit too big. So it's not perfect but it's okay. What do you think?
