Pattern Review McCalls 6319, View A


Wings and  Stripes (sold out)

This fabric is so soft and light, it's so comfortable.  This is the second dress I've made from this McCalls pattern.  I changed the pleats at the shoulder and waistline to gathers instead.  They worked beautifully on this fabric and I love the look better.


The tricot lining was perfect.  I was a little concerned about the light color of the lining so I took the neckline part of the lining and created a facing out of the garment fabric.  I wanted the neck to blend from outside to inside just in case.


Elastic is sewn to the waistband to cinch it in and it's the perfect place for a belt!
  A perfect 5 hour project!

Another great outfit, Abby!
