I needed......well let me rephrase that....I WANTED a new dress to wear to church on Sunday so on late evening yesterday I decided to make one. While perusing my patterns I ran across McCall's 6074. I'd meant to sew it ages ago but could never find the right fabric in my stash. Well I dug through my fabric and found the perfect print for it. I'm all too thrilled when that happens. The marriage of a good pattern and fabric is truly a good thing. Well I got to work and Voila....I had my dress in about 3 hours.
Dress with gathered elastic under bust.
(Elastic gathers up close)
I cut the size 12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved the simple styling. Wanted to use it to showcase my fabric. Plus it's a really quick pattern. I made view A and it was only 3 pieces. It's said to be an 1 hour pattern but I'm a slow poke so between coverstitching the neckline & hems it took me more like 3.
A Poly/Rayon blend that I won from the lovely Sheila:)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Probably--it's a great simple TNT dress to keep on hand. I highly recommend it!!!
Great quickie dress pattern! I wanted a new dress to wear to church the next day so this fit the bill & turned out rather cute. No complaints at all:)
BTW, while I was at the park today you wouldn't believe who I bumped into today.....
go ahead and take another one.....
give up? LOL!
I ran into Angela Keslar from Project Runway Season 3. She was jogging at Forsythe park. I saw her from a distance jogging and kept staring. Thankfully she didn't notice. But as soon as she approached I asked if she was on PR to be sure. When she said yes, I gushed a bit. I think I made her smile when I told her I was a bit star struck and I remembered her for her rosettes. I wanted a pic, but with no makeup and jogging I thought not to ask. As a Woman I wouldn't want to asked. But she was lovely just the same. That's like the 4th contestant I've run into. Pretty cool.
Anyhow, I just cut out my Easter dress and got to get back to work. Happy sewing to you.........
