Misses' and Women's dress in four length. Empire waist dress have hemmed, scoop necklines, side seam pockets and elastic casing at waist. Pattern Sizing:
8-16. I cut a size 16. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Absolutely. Don't you think so? Click Here Were the instructions easy to follow?
I glanced at them but really didn't need to use them. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I wanted to try a maxi dress pattern that was different from the one I've used for my six other maxis-McCalls 6559. Click Here Fabric Used:
I used an ITY Jersey from Fabric.com Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a 1" FBA and rotated it to the bottom of the bodice as gathers. I also turned the pattern bust dart into gathers. I added 2" to the length and raised the armhole 3/4." I omitted the waist elastic. I don't think it really serves a purpose. I serged the armhole and neckline and while only turning under 3/8, topstitched the turned under edges with a double needle. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Would I sew it again? Are you kidding? I've already cut another one and it is ready for the sewing machine. Conclusion:
This pattern was first published in 2009...why, oh why did I wait so long? You have got to get this pattern...you won't be sorry if you do. Click Here
