McCalls 6793 2 Different Ways

Hi all! So I've been sewing like mad, finishing some honeymoon clothes and a bridesmaid dress. My sewing room floor is littered with thousands of little threads and there's loose pattern pieces all over the place...sometime I'll clean it.

Here's one of my favorite patterns 2 different ways: McCalls 6793. I totally love secretary blouses with a tie. I just finished the yellow swiss dot top, but the flowered one I had done months ago.

The dotted swiss I bought up at Osgood's in West Springfield (which is definitely a voyage, so material I buy there I tend to hold on to longer as it feels more precious). The antique-y flowered fabric is a chiffon from Joann's. 

It's a simple construction with 4 main pattern pieces, front, back, sleeve and collar/tie.  

I don't think I've ever seen some polka dot fabric and turned it down...hopefully within the next week I'll get around to writing about my wedding dress..also dotted swiss!!
