Sometimes a pattern just needs a little imagination (and a lot of squinting) to be seen for what it truly is: the directions for a beautiful, wearable piece. This was the case with the McCall’s pattern I picked up when I bought my first sewing machine. It also happens that I am terrible at following directions (you should see my first attempt at a sweater), so instead of the A-line, gathered skirt I was expecting, I came out with this much more slinky piece. Nevertheless, small added details like pockets, the lined skirt, and a double layered bodice make for a nice dress. The white fabric is muslin (which shrunk a ton!) and the orange is a fabric I picked up at one of my newly-discovered fabric stores.
