Here is the result of McCalls 6713. Blech. :-( Too short-waisted for me. Or, maybe that's a design feature, but it's not a flattering one for me. It isn't high enough to be empire-waist, but it's several inches above my natural waist. Plus, it's too short. Just not a hit.
Anyway, I've been working on some other things, knitting and sewing, so I'm going to get back to them. :-) That's all for now.
