Description

Finally, I found some wool!!
I love the pockets in this dress, and the fit is great.
I followed the pattern omitting only the suggested topstitching on the neckline.
I found the cute buckle at a craft store and the whole dress cost me $14.00…bargain!!

Material Notes

Wool, zipper, buckle

    This is one (or maybe the most) exquisite dress I have seen on this site so far!

    Yes that’s the pattern!! I first saw it in Stitches mag. and had every intention of buying it. Then last week I was checking out some websites and clicked on McCalls and was offered it for a free download:) It was 75(OMG) pages….

    Oh, my sister just finished this same dress I think- is it McCalls M5466?http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5466.htm?tab=dresses&page=3? She didn’t do the topstitching at the neckline either. Anyway you have done a really lovely job!
