Although it's not very visible in the second photo, the puckers aren't there. Also using a smaller needle really helped remove some of the wrinkles/puckers that occurred in the McCall's skirt.
Now I have to do the lining. I used a stretch poly charmeuse for the skirt, but I haven't decided if I will use the same fabric for the jacket.
That's all for now. School starts in a couple of days and I need to get prepared! I hope to squeeze in some sewing before then. Until next time, be well.
