McCall's 6347 view A makes a lovely cool, summery, casual dress. This is a snap to make - two pieces for the main dress plus the tie piece. Sew the seams, finish the neck and armhole edges, hem, make tie - so simple. I need to make another one of these.
The fabric used is from Gorgeous Fabrics. I bought this fabric in November 2010 and so this dress is my first entry in the fabric stash contest. It is a polyester and was called Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles. Loved it when I saw it, but didn't know what I was going to make from it when it arrived. I think it works perfectly in this dress.
The photo above shows the back tied as per the pattern and below without the tie. I plan to wear it with the tie - I think it is cute.
One more shot of the front- spot the cat...
And for a laugh I had to show my muscles off for the photographer - he said I was scary!
I have another half finished project for the stash contest but was waiting for elastic to finish it. In the meantime I got busy finishing a UFO. A strippy quilt-as-you-go started many years ago.
Until next time... Ciao kittens!
