Another Mccalls 6197 dress this time in a size 5. I fully lined in a light weight cotton voile giving a beautiful finish on the inside. I added a ruffle to the skirt lining to make the dress nice and twirly to wear. I needed to adjust a large amount of gape on both the front and back neckline which I did by adding a gather detail at the front and tapered the back by an inch. I also cut a wider/lower neckline. I adjusted the lining by pivoting the centre line in at the top by 1/2" inch (or so) for both the front and back bodice pieces. I also had to do this for the other version of this pattern I made in the size 2. I so love the fully lined finish it is worth the extra time. After making two little girl dresses to perfect the technique I am looking forward to fully lining my next dresses for me… Next up for me is the sleeved version of Simplicity 2444 in a vintage green gingham.
Recycled cotton curtain fabric given to me (love the print and it’s a nice weight cotton) and plus some cotton voile for the lining. Invisible zipper and bias trim on the skirt lining.
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
