McCalls 6886

I finally decided to use this free fabric I got as part of the Michael Levine gift bag from the Mimi G conference in 2014.  This pattern is a great way to use up those shorter cuts of fabric.  I’ve made this dress before so it was super easy.  The only differences from the previous version is that I made this one V-neck and long sleeved.

Pattern Description: MISSES’ DRESSES: Close-fitting, pullover dresses have neckline variations, and stitched hems. E and F: neck bands.
Designed for medium-weight moderate stretch knits.

Pattern Sizing: A5(6-8-10-12-14),E5(14-16-18-20-22)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Definitely!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Super, I didn’t need them though because the dress is just that easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the style of the dress but I love the ease of putting it together.

Fabric Used: I used an ITY for this version

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made View E because I wanted to try the V-Neck. I also pegged the hem a bit for a better fit.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Uhhhh Yeah! Pronto!

Conclusion: This is a great looking and easy dress to make. It has multiple lengths and neckline options so you can make many versions of this dress and have them all look different.
