In There Like Swimwear – McCalls 7046 Pattern Review

This pattern was a very simple project, and I like the outcome.  For the first time I used swimwear fabric in floral white, grey, black, and pink.  Wow, it has great recovery and it feels wonderful on.  As a quick pattern review, I made View C in a size 6.  The ruching that drew me to it is created with elastic sewn to the seam allowance.  The flounce directions were easy to follow and all the seams lined up.

I like this dress, and will probably end up making it again more times than I should. The fabric wears like a second skin and that feels great in the Louisiana heat.  A close up of the ruching effect is below.
