Another item for Goodwill and moving on---
The McCall’s dress is complete except for hemming. I will not be keeping the dress as I just don’t like the look of it. Even using a size 12 in shoulder/upper chest area, the neckline is just not flattering on me.
I just did not feel like handling it again and trying to make it work. I am just not feeling the love to continue to work on it.
So I am moving on to the next project. This will be Butterick dress and jacket. It is Butterick 5460. I plan to use this fabric acquired from EOS earlier this year.
I cut out the pattern and pin fitted it to determine adjustments needed. Of course the usual swayback and FSA were necessary. I also needed 1.5 inch FBA. I also added some width to the front armsyce area as I did not like how the sleeveless area was sitting at the front.
I have the thread, the zipper and I am ready to go.
