This is McCall’s M6508 , view D, with the standup collar, pleated skirt, and sleeves in a happy apple print cotton. I also added piping along the lines of the collar and the waistband, which was an adventure – I’ve never done that before, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! I got little wooden buttons to close the front of the dress, but I’m not entirely sold on them – what do you think? I’ve been considering switching them out for some self-cover buttons with red satin, to go with the piping, but I think that might be a bit TOO matchy.
