A crazy print.
Ahhh, all my favourites in one dress!
Pattern: McCall’s 5845 bodice with alterations, McCalls’s 6349 skirt
- Lowered front neck
- Scoop back
- 1cm sway back adjustment
- Replaced fitted skirt with full gathered skirt
I lined the bodice with red sunsilky polyester, installed a waist stay, and handpicked the zip.
The best part of this dress is the hem. I deliberately hemmed the skirt so that the solid black would sit on the edge of the hem.
