McCalls 5434

This was very easy to put together. The top has wrapped fronts with self-ties and three-quarter sleeves. The skirt has a mock wrap front with elastic casing. The length comes just below my knees. It was very comfortable to wear. I used the knit jersey from Fabric Mart, one of the items in my first purchase from them!
The top & the skirt has top stitching all along the neck & front edges as well as the hems. No facings. The skirt is top-stitched on the front overlay of the wrap. The only notion you need is thread! I will make this again in another knit type fabric.
This time I have a pic wearing the finished garment. My daughter was over and I got her to do the picture taking.
