This is the third time I have sewn with this pattern (McCalls 6011)!
It is such an underrated pattern, I really recommend it! For this dress I omitted the sleeves and added these little things near the neckline to give the neckline a sweetheart effect.
This style is so flattering on the curvy figure! Empathizes the bust and the skirt (which is cut on the bias) skims over the hips.
It is rare I ever sew with a pattern where I don’t need to alter the fit, but this is one such case.
Fitting notes: Excellent fit. LOVE this pattern!
Anything you would change?: I would put those little loops near the neckline on BEFORE I sewed up the shoulder seam.My Blog!
Pattern: McCalls 6011
