this is mccalls 6326 top’s pattern lengthened. this is the second dress i’ve made from this. the first is in my what was i thinking pile!! right next to the what possesed me to try making this pile lol. i will fix the first one and post it as the fabrics lovely. this pattern is for knits so i thought i’d use this bright cartoon fabric. its supposed to be cotton jersey but it has minimal stretch so i gave myself more work than i had planned. with the scraps i made a matching reversable bolero. its fully lined im a nice red ribbed cotton jersey and can be reversed as well.
my lovely mums in one of the photos plus my two helpers!! fizz and toffee lol x
