Description

My second version of McCall’s 2401. (see first version here

The fabric was a red polyester crepe with white polka dots, and I made view E of this pattern as I thought the sleeves are more practical for the weather here.

I made a few alterations this time: using a single fold self-fabric bias tape as facing, a small bust adjustment, widening all darts by 1cm on each side, and shortening the skirt. It was a simple project with effective results :)

      Thank you! I was surprised by how much more ease was needed for a non-stretchy fabric.
