McCalls 6886 – My new TNT dress pattern

Wow! I knew I’d been away for awhile but didn’t realize for just how long.  I’m sure it’s partially because I’ve worn and sewn some pieces that I thought would be great for the blog but sadly have just not had time to photograph.  I have been working like crazy over the past few months and by the time I get home it’s pretty dark.  I used to take my photos in the house but since I started taking them outside I try to avoid the in-house pics as much as possible.  Anyway . . . the temps around here are warming up and since I knew the hottest day of the week was coming up, I decided to make a new dress, but it had to be quick.  This McCalls pattern definitely fit the bill.  This dress is simple and cute and the pattern offers lots of options for length, neckline and sleeve length so you can have lots of fun with it.



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 only 3 easy pieces for this version

Fabric Used: I used an ITY for this version

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made View C beause I love the open neckline but made it with short sleeves. 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.
