Polka Dots!

Giveaway Winners!

Ok, so I had no idea how hard it was to giveaway free stuff!  Sorry it took me so long to get this done with but I got caught up! (that's so easy to do!) I guess you guys are a lot like me. (don't need any more stuff)  Well anywhooo - I picked names anyway.  My winners are Evoni V and Alethia!  Congratulations!!!  Thanks everyone for reading and I encourage you to leave comments and join as a member.  OK, now on to my review. . .

 Quick Contemporary Color block

McCall's 6400
This was a fast sew!  Front/Back one piece sew and fold hems! I made this shirt after reading a few reviews about how quick is was to construct.  I originally had another pattern picked for this fabric but you gotta go with your gut sometimes.  (or the fact that it's almost time to leave and I don't have a thing to wear) The fabric is an ITY I picked up at the Chicago Textile Warehouse.
I used a double needle to finish all hems on the shirt.
I did add the sleeve in red (a scrap I had) and made it a little bigger to hang off the shoulder.  I did the XL. I think next time I'll make the neck a little wider because the "hoochie factor" I wanted, didn't happen. But I wore it anyway.  I pictured it with the red skirt because I may wear this tomorrow. (LOL!)

This pattern was super duper easy peasy lemon squeezie so beginners take heed. So, here is how I wore it:

I hate it when you can't see my hairdo I paid for! LOL!
My pants are Liz Claiborne and my shoes are 5yrs old - First time wearing them (I'm shame!)

oooh, a quick post!
Talk Soon Carol
