Description

The pattern is McCall’s 6700 from the Spring 2013 line. From the pattern envelope: “Pullover dress has fitted, mock wrap bodice, shoulder ties, elasticized shoulders and raised (seamed) waist, fitted, narrow hem, thread carriers and self belt.” This dress is designed for medium weight stretch knits and I was happy to find this floral knit fabric in my stash. It is a very simple dress so it is a good base for the lively prints.My fabric is only 2 m though, so I didn’t make the self belt.

I made size 8 with some alterations. I don’t like elastics on my waist line so I shortened the bodice about 2 cm so to raise the waistline. The skirt was shortened about 20 cm. I use clear elastic for the shoulders and also along the wrapover neckline to stabilize them. The hemline is left raw because knits won’t fray.

    I love it! The fabric is nice and lovely (a bit 70s!) the raised waistline looks great. And the wrapped bodice which tends to be tricky looks well done. Great job!
