This is how I look. No mirror image (which to ME, looks like me because I usually only see mirror images of myself). The lighting is fairly accurate. And if I have pockets, my hands are usually jammed in them. But I do have feet in real life. ;-) I also need a haircut; I'm getting kind of shaggy.
This is the pattern, McCall's 6078.
I started this top about a month and a half ago, and then set it aside. I originally bought the wrong size range and did something with blending my TNT Ottobre tee to size it up. I can't remember exactly what I did or I would show you. But I wasn't thrilled with the results which is why I set it aside. Weeks went by and I tried it on again and decided I could salvage it. I've also since bought the pattern in the correct size range, thinking it will be a good basic, and I will try it again because this white one could fit better in the shoulders.
I like the way it looks under the jacket, but I'm not so thrilled with it alone. The big expanse of white makes me look bigger. Let this be a lesson in clothing camouflage. Although I love my white refashioned skirt from yesterday on me. Go figure.
I made the sleeveless view B (shown in the red drawing), but added short sleeves. Again, from my TNT Ottobre. I probably wouldn't take the jacket off when wearing this, but just in case, I wanted sleeves. This pic below shows it belted.
I'm wearing the Walmart skirt I showed a few days ago, and which I had planned to wear the putty jacket with (except it wasn't a jacket yet at that point). It is just me, or does a cowl like this feel messy when you wear it too? I'm getting used to it, but I can't help re-arranging the droops every 10 minutes.
I mean, really. Look at this mess:

My call for accessories is this: I know I need some. Pins, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, belts. I don't wear silver. Does anyone have any Etsy recommendations that are reasonably priced? It's OK if it's your own shop. In fact, that's even better.

Now it's off to the grocery because I've just learned Tyler will be here for dinner after all and I've got nothing thawed. Some things never change, like last-minute announcements, no matter how grown up they are. I've got a list of things I wish the Drill Instructors at Parris Island would add to their repertoire.
