McCall's 6560...

Sometimes I buy patterns and I forget that I have them until I buy some super cheap Nippori fabric and need a pattern to make it with.  (It doesn't help that half my patterns are in Japan and the other half in America.)  That was the case with McCall's 6560.  I just bought this pattern forever ago and the fabric equally forever ago.  I'm sure it was approaching winter when I bought the fabric, so I was like forget it.  I'll make it in the summer.

Well it's summer.  So here it is.

Pattern McCall's 6560:

This is the fabric just a light cotton with big polka dots:

It's super wrinkly!  Boo.

Here's the dress (B) minus finished hem:

The bust is a little strange fitting but I managed to wiggle into it, and I totally need someone to help me fix the back once it's on.  The facing and everything was all out of control.  Also, this pattern likes you to start with button holes, so I started the project crying.  Seriously, why are button holes so freakin' hard?!?!?

Anyway, I like it.  What do you think?
