I have been very bad about posting my sewing creations...and it's going to take me a while to get back up to current with all that. In the meantime, I'll be putting up one at a time-glad I took notes on these patterns while I was sewing them!
Here is my attempt at a maxi-dress, my first ever to sew or to wear, thanks to McCalls 6559 pattern. I'm not wild about it, I have to say. It seems most of the time to just hang like a sack. Don't know. Thought my stripey fabric would have spiced things up, but perhaps if that's what I was after, I should have sewn view E rather than view D, eh?
|This is the angle I like, the only angle I like of this dress...|
As I indicated above, I made view D, the long, no-frills version.
I cut a size 6.
For this dress, there were all 4 steps, so really, anyone can whip this out in no time.
The only variation I made, was to use lengths of fabric as bias for the neckline and arm holes. Not sure if this was a good call or not, but I'd just completed another knit project where things got all bent out of shape by performing a rolled hem in those places. Hmm. Thinking of shortening the length, what do you think?
