M6887 passes its test!

I wore the McCall's dress yesterday to work and for late evening meeting.  The dress passed the wearability test with flying colors.

Of course here are the semi side and side views



I decided to go beltless as my waist does not exist and I am used to not wearing belts.  The print is very busy so the dress looks more like a sheath style dress.

I can see me making another dress from this pattern, using blocking and piping.  With all fitting adjustments made, it should be an easier dress to make the next time.

I do now realize what I did with the sleeves was not exactly what I should have done.  It was not a huge wearing issue yesterday.

Up next--still to be decided.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I really should make another one as this took on a life of it's own at one point.

  4. That dress looks perfect on you - and yes, skimming the waist is the way to go for us rectangles! The colours suit you perfectly as well :)

  10. Linda, passes the test most certainly! It looks "balanced" when you wear it, fitting your figure perfectly. Very good job with your alterations, I'd make this again as many ways as you can think of! Each variation can make it look like a completely different dress! Congrats!

    1. Thanks Cherie for your very kind words. I do plan to make again particularly as I have the pattern adjusted for fit; the next version should be quicker to sew the second time around.
