When I purchased McCall's pattern 6350 (OOP) in 2011, I had all intentions to create view A with the side drapes. A few years later when I have now actually gotten around to making the pattern, I am so happy that I did not make that that skirt variation. This variation is classic retro:
The skirt is a full circle skirt and I feel that the last thing it needs is and additional overlay with pooling fabric at the hips. The construction was fun; the bodice is boned and lined and has angled pleating at the bust. I would call it advanced beginner. I did not actually change all that much on the pattern, of course I shortened both the bodice and skirt. I also elected to make my halter strap stationary opposed to adding button attachments. In addition I added cups to the bust for ease of wear.
