Description

Modified McCall’s 6331 This was my first sewing project— not counting random hand-embroidered handkerchief things. It took forever because I don’t have a sewing machine, but I’m really happy with how it turned out!

I shortened the pattern bodice a little and replaced the scalloped skirt with a self-drafted circle skirt. I also added a waist stay. Hand overcast seams, hand-picked zipper, and hand-rolled hem.
