A few weeks ago, I finished my first dress 🙂 It wasn’t an easy dress to sew as I have a lot to learn but I’m pleased with the result.
The dress was made from McCall’s 4768
I made it in 2 weekends.
Pattern Description: Below mid-knee, semi-fitting and sleeveless dress. I made C because of the flounce.
Pattern Sizing: 8-14. I made size 14.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, they perfectly described the dress.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, except for the facing, I didn’t understand a lot how to do and used a different way.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the flounce a lot.
Fabric Used: Linen.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Nothing.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don’t know if I would sew it again, maybe I would sew another one but without a flounce…
Recommend it to others? Yes, but I will say it’s not a pattern for beginner (IMO).
Conclusion: That’s a beautiful dress for summer and the flounce adds a stylish effect to the dress.
