Help needed!

I was just about to cut out a pair of shorts from McCall's 6328, and realised I've somehow managed to lose piece 12 - the back yoke!  So I was just wondering if any of my readers happen to have this pattern and would be willing to scan that piece of the pattern and email it to me... that would be really great!
Thank you in advance, and hopefully I can either find a piece of the pattern or make one up so I can get stuck into these shorts!

Package bonanza!

Over the last two weeks, I've received the most post I think I ever have, aside from birthdays!  Here's my little collection, three packages from three lovely ladies!

From Kat over at Petticoats and Peplums, I have my Pay It Forward gift.  She's made me a crocheted (I think??) pincushion, purple on one side and green on the other, and also sent a set of adorable heart shaped buttons and a thread tin with a lovely vintage lady on the front.

Next, this amazing polkadotted knit fabric and a copy of Tiramisu from StephC at 3 Hours Past!  I won this one in a massive giveaway she was doing, and I count myself very lucky to have won.  Can't wait to sew up this dress!  I wonder if the direction of the dots will give a similar effect to the stripes in the pattern illustration... that will be interesting to experiment with, I've not sewn with anything polkadotted before!

And lastly, a treat to myself after finishing exams, from Sarah at OhhhLulu (her blog is wonderful, and I would love one of everything from her Etsy shop!!) - the Bon Voyage underwear set!  No pictures of these on me, so you'll have to take my word that they fit perfectly and feel amazing on - definitely recommended!!
All in all, I'm counting myself very lucky this week before Christmas!  And once again, I want to say a huge thankyou to Kat, Steph, and Sarah for my wonderful packages.
