Another Blue Dress – McCall’s 7249 Pattern Review


Yes, it’s a slightly different fabric, but another blue dress, nonetheless.  I picked up McCall’s pattern 7249 on a whim and decided to use something in my stash to make it.  I’m trying to pare down my stash this winter.  The bin I have reserved for fabric is overflowing into a bag and a second smaller bin.  I need to stop passing by the remnants table on my way out of the fabric store.

As a pattern review, I made View D without sleeves in a Size 6.  Or you could say I made View A in the dress version.  The instructions were easy to follow.  The only changes I made were making the dress sleeveless and using Steam-A-Seam on the hem instead of stitching it.

This dress was a relatively quick and easy sew. I think it’s a little plain in the solid color but a co-worker told me I could dress it up with jewelry. 🙂  It was definitely comfortable all day.

  1. Your dress is adorable and you look amazing in it! I am just about to pin and cut this pattern – in blue, of course. I hope I look as good in my dress as you do in yours.
