I am completely in love with how my "mock" turned out. This was the encouragement I needed to spark a little creativity. I love the contrast of the structured stripes with the ease or the Swiss dot. The garment fits well, and is comfortable, no buttons or zippers; just simple.

I apparently have a thing about the way things look from behind, it must be the fact that I wear an apron when I work. If you are interested in this pattern it is McCalls M6604. Even with me taking my time on both of these I had them done in less than 2 days! I used chiffon for both of them and a striped cotton and one of my favorite techniques to hem. I love love love these and I'm looking forward to working with the pattern again. Maybe next time without the cowl?
