I used McCalls 6758 Pattern View D. The fabric I used is a silk cotton blend and is absolutely soft with beautiful drape and color. I used my newly acquired rotary cutting skills to cut out the pattern. It was a breeze. I had no troubles with the fabric slipping when cutting as the fabric has just enough cotton content to grip. Used the following: silk thread
edge stitching foot and dressmakers waxed transfer paper in blue. I did french seams.
