Hi! I am just wondering what people think of McCall's 6320. I really like view B with the 2 different straps and was surprised there are no reviews of this dress. Any thoughts? It is unique with the one sleeve version and maybe that's a turn-off. I am always interested in dresses that allow me to wear a bra and I thought view B was fun. For me the challenge is the contrasting fabric since I don't plan to wear a belt with this dress.

Is anyone else thinking about making this dress?

I have limited fashion knowledge, but after Googling it and looking at the McCall's page, my feeling is that the dramatic one-shoulder look is incompatible with the sporty belt loops, and a little iffy with any belt at all. (I wish that the belt-but-no-loops with the print "fabric" were actually a photograph instead of a drawing, so that I could decide about the belt.)

I find myself wanting the green one to lose the belt loops, belt, and bangles, and transform into more of an evening dinner dress.

Edited to add: I didn't notice that you were looking at View B. Yes, I think that has the most potential, looking at the sketches; I wish they had a photograph of that view.

Thanks! I think you are spot on about the belt loops being incompatible with the one-shoulder look. Well, onward I go...I'm determined to make something of this.

I love the dress, exactly as is, and am excited to see what you do with it!

I have spent 1year trying to find the right fabric for this dress. It would be really cute to wear to a summer function.

I love your PR user name too!

Cheap fabrics, like cheap shoes, are a false economy.
