Daughter Katie needed a dress to wear to her Boyfriends Army Military Ball. She choose McCall Pattern M5382 and choose champange taffata with black lace. This dress looks complicated but really isn’t. I was even able to sew a purchased bra into the top, that way there was no worry about the dress slipping down while dancing.
For a size 12 you will need about 2 3/4 yards for the dress and 2 1/2 for the lining. One 14 inch zipper and about 5 years of lace.
New pattern categories and how-to changes.
