McCall's 6044, Chapter three

The 6044 shirt is coming along.  I sewed the pocket on with the help of my Simplicity sewing book.
A book like this comes in handy for a beginner like me.  It shows various sewing techniques and also explains terms used in the pattern instructions I don't know.  I picked this up at the thrift store.  It is over thirty years old, but the techniques are still the same, plus it is fun to look at the fashions.

A pocket has a few steps to make it look proper.   This book sure helped.

Wow!  Looks like I have a pocket.  Sleeves tomorrow.

Time for a slice of the lemon meringue pie I made today.
