Knit dress up next

I cut out knit fabric from Denver Fabrics acquired  earlier this year.
Olive greeen animal print knit-Denver Fabrics-2-2011
I am going to make McCall’s 6200 as seen at the right side in the Work in Progress section. I decided to cut out the size 12 in the upper area as McCall’s patterns sometimes run a little large on me.  I transitioned to size 14 from the underarm to just below the waist area, then tapered back to a 12 from there.  The bust measurement for size 14 was sufficient to not require a FBA.  Yeah!!!!
I did make swayback and forward shoulder adjustments.  The dress pattern is cut out and I now only need to set up my serger and sewing machine.
While deciding on making this dress next, I also pulled out some other patterns that I have been wanting to make into dresses.  They include Butterick 5519, Butterick 5520 and this one.
Updates later.


  1. This going to be really nice, can;t wait to see it finished!

  2. The Jalie top in your last post looks great. Your alterations must have been perfect, since you have a really good fit.

  3. I can't wait to see your version of this dress, it is also on my list!

  4. That fabric is very pretty... Checked out your other patterns and really like Butterick 5519 sleeveless version.
