The pattern is McCall’s 6460 a fitted dress with sweetheart neckline effect. I opted for version D which has three-quarter sleeves but I also added the floating hem band of version C.
The main fabric is flocked chiffon in a tone on tone pile leopard print design. I worried that the chiffon would not hold up to the shoulder/arm structure of the dress or hold the weight of the dress body (that is backed with white stretch twill). I underlined the upper yoke in netting for stability and backed the sleeves (as well as the hem band) in organza. This also helped to use up scrap fabrics!
