Description

Even though I can draft my own patterns, I do like to use commercial patterns for quick, painless projects. I slightly altered a McCall’s pattern for this dress (but can you believe they added 4" of ease to a dress with so many princess seams?). Originally, the sleeves had a pleat that you were suppose to cover with a decorative button, but it cut off the circulation to my arm, so I removed the pleat. Of course, I had decided to do a decorative stitch hem, so ripping those stitches was a pain! However, I am crazy pleased with the outcome. I’ve just purchased some galaxy print fabric to make another one of these.

    I just made a dress using the red version of this fabric… but only for the sleeves/collar/tie belt. Now you’ve got me wishing I made the whole dress out of that fabric. So cute!
