Description

Bright summer dress based on McCalls M6322for daughter no.2, but only used two fabrics (chosen by her) rather than three (economy!). Struggled a bit with the scalloped hem – didn’t realise it was so difficult to sew smooth curves…:) but am pleased with the results, and more importantly so is she!

    Looks like summer can come :-) – I wish my mom would sew a dress like this for me, . . . .

    love the scallop detail… have been scared to try that, but you made it beautifully!
