Description

McCall 8997 – reproduction by Eva Dress: 13-piece pattern in sizes 14-42 (32" to 42" bust, 26" to 36" waist, 35" to 45" hip)

This is not a pattern for a beginner. The instructions are limited and might be frustrating for someone without vintage pattern experience. This is one where I had to read through a few times before I fully understood how to put everything together. But it is absolutely worth the extra effort!

My suggestion would be to read everything very carefully! I almost missed adding my cuff button loops because I was not paying attention to the written directions and they are not shown in the diagram.

I just love the sleeves! That, and the fact that I have not made many 30s dress patterns makes it extra special.

I also love that this pattern is not super easy to figure out – a challenge is good every once in a while!

I am sure that I will be making this dress again, the only question is when! I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a classic style with some extra special details.

More pictures may be found over on my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
