Description

McCall’s 5327

My new fav dress, well until the next one anyway!

Who doesn’t like pink?? My colour and tastes have changed so much within the last year. I wouldn’t of dared wear pink, standard colour in my wardrobe was black. Thank god those dark days are gone, I have finally seen the light or should I say COLOUR?

I really love this style particularly the collar. Version A has a detachable collar, I opted without.
I graded the pattern up a few sizes, did the right thing this time and made muslin, which I used for the lining. I’m very happy with my new dress. Now onto the next one!

Material Notes

11/2 mtrs cotton fabric
1 1/2 mtrs cotton calico for the lining
30 cm invisible zip
belt kit
button kit

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Absolutely gorgeous, I think colour is so much more flattering than black on most people :)
