I have been on a sewing rampage! I have a month off between the end of teaching summer school and the new year beginning, so I am using my free time to sew.
I busted out McCalls 5926 in a couple of hours, including a hand sewn hem, and tacking down facings.

I made it with zebra print quilter’s cotton. (I don’t love quilter’s cotton, but jo-anns is the only option and the selection is pitiful.) It is a smaller print and in dark grey and beige, so very neutral.
This is a dress for work, and I think it is super cute. I was afraid it would look sausagey, since it is a 10, and I am not in high school and no longer have a 24″ waist. I would say it has about 2 inches of ease, and it fits nicely.
