This McCall's pattern is definitely a big favorite of mine.
I think I have made at least two other dresses with it and I recently made a third.
I know there will be more, too.
I was in Downtown LA Fashion District picking up some interfacing, zippers, lining fabric and gingham fabric for my mother-in-law. I was NOT there to buy ANY OTHER FABRIC.
I came home with 3 yards of this pretty, plaid, pastel, lightweight linen fabric that "would make the perfect summer dress". I think I also came home with a yard of $10 Pokemon fabric that Aubrey "had to have."
Downtown LA Fashion District is NOT a safe place for me. More like a giant candy store.
I finally got around to making my dress and here it is:
I like the colors a lot.
Blue and brown are my favorite colors.
I like the hint of pink. It softens it up a bit.
I used vintage buttons my other mother-in-law gave me.
I have yet to try the long sleeve version of this dress. That might have to be my next project for this pattern. The collar is a bit tricky on this pattern. The more I do it, the easier it gets, so I want to make an effort to use it a few more times, so I can get it down. When you find a pattern that fits your body and you love, once you get it mastered you can make them pretty effortlessly. I could easily own 10 dresses made from the different options in this pattern.
I need to head back to DTLA soon to get more zippers.
Maybe I will find the perfect fabric that I'm not there to buy.
What are the odds ;)?
