McCall's 6992.....

Fall wardrobe staple, another great pattern from McCall's. I love the simplicity of this pattern and how fast it took to pull together.  I spent approximately 2 hours to complete including cutting and sewing time so a big plus in my book.
I used a sweater knit fabric that has been in my stash for ages. I think I did a good job with the placement of the fabric due to fabric shortage (I had about a meter) but importantly I wanted to make sure the white diamonds are not on the a pat on the back for me....

 Modification made to the pattern:

1. Added 1-inch to the  bodice
2. Removed about 1.5-inch from each side of the sleeve from arm-hole to sleeve-band ( The sleeve had too much ease for my liking it might be due to my fabric choice but can't tell for sure until I try another fabric)
Please pardon my picture quality again, my better camera is back now so  I will try to take and post better pictures again.....

Enjoy the countdown to Xmas, and  have a wonderful and a happy Holidays....
