Description

This is the dress I made to wear on my birthday this year. It’s made with silk jersy & I used McCalls 5974.

I can see why this pattern made was number 1 in Pattern Review’s Top 10 Patterns of 2010. It’s super easy to make & it looks fantastic. The instructions were easy to follow – the pattern was really forgiving & didn’t require any tricky fitting or finicky details. The only modification I made was to leave out the zip as there was enough stretch in the fabric. It only took me an afternoon to make too.

The silk jersey it just divine. I love it. I think I’ll make a few more dresses like this for travelling, the silk jersey doesn’t crinkle & is really comfortable. In fact I cannot complain about this dress at all. I can wear it to work, Sunday lunch, Friday night drinks, summer holiday… the list goes on. Every seamstress should have McCalls M5974 in their pattern stash.

I keep more details of many of the clothes I make on my blog, Orchids in May
