Just a quick photo, McCall's 6554. I love this pattern. It is one of four designs released from the "reality" television show Fashion Star. 

I'm not a huge fan of the show but I am a huge fan of this pattern.

I think I might actually wear it to work tomorrow.  


  1. OOH- I like, I like! That is a very pretty floral. I'm writing that pattern number down.
