Perfect Fit White Summer Dress

Added Jul 23, 2012

by SachiDespic

Ithaca, New York...






I used the top pattern from McCall’s 5927 and the skirt pattern from McCall’s 4460.

I recently learned that most of commercial patterns are designed to fit people who wear B cup size bras. M5927 comes with patterns for A~D cup sizes. I used the smaller sized pattern than I usually use and in bigger bra size…and the top fits perfectly!!

The dress is lined entirely with white cotton.

Material Notes

white cotton with lace and pin-tuck details, soid white cotton, invisible zipper


Garment Type
Casual, Romantic

      I have recently returned from a hiking tour in Bulgaria and this sewing machine was in one of the guest houses that I stayed in. I am not sure if it worked though. I had to take a photo as I did with the other sewing machine that I found at another guest house.
